Oxford City Council gets into a Passion

There are exceptions of course, but local authorities seem to be a kind of dustbin for those who are unemployable in any other work-place. My own local authority, Oxford City Council, is no exception to this, and not just at the dim and destructive planning department where a thick, lazy “officer” recently failed to spot an outright lie by Oxford University about the visibility of some hideous flats and went on to omit the required Environmental Impact Assessment, presumably because he couldn’t cope with all those syllables.

Last week, a group had sought permission to perform a Passion Play in the Cowley Road; a dim little chap at Oxford City Council saw the word “Passion” and, knowing nothing of Easter or anything else, withheld permission on the assumption that some al fresco sex performance was proposed. These are the people who decide the fate of our city.
