Sticking Point

Whatever happened to those ubiquitous 'Bill Stickers Will Be Prosecuted' notices? I can only assume that Bill has either now been prosecuted or has heeded the warning and gone to ground. 

Blog reader Dave, however, is still vexed about fly posting around Worcester Park:

"The worst offenders locally are the morons who offer a car-scrappage "service", but are too tight-fisted to advertise in the normal way and the local scout troop who are forever plastering the lamposts the length of Central Road advertising their jumble sales, and fail to remove them after the event. 

Whoever leads that troop is setting a very bad example.
Now, if everyone, as some of us already do, removed each and every piece of fly-posting as soon as it appeared the problem would largely be solved."

Or bloggers who forget to remove their 'Christmas Late Night' posters until the middle of January. Not that that would ever happen.

WP: A question on this very subject: We all admire the beautiful flowerbeds along Central Road, but these knocked up car scrapping posters are certainly an eyesore. I assume these and similar posters are considered in law to be illegally erected/dumped, so presumably their own removal and thoughtful scrapping in a nearby public bin, by local residents would be entirely within both the letter and spirit of the law? Would you or a legally trained local contact be able to confirm this?

… If so, perhaps Bill ‘scrapper’ Stickers will soon grow tired of having his fruitless efforts repeatedly undermined in KT4 and he’ll resolve to try his luck elsewhere … But if not, the resulting frequency by which he has to return to replace his billboards should prove an uneconomic use of his time. And with cameras on most mobile phones, Bill Stickers’ days of anonymity and evasion of legal action would hopefully be decidedly numbered.
