”A five-year-old girl was fined £150 by a council for selling 50p cups of lemonade to festival goers.
The girl’s father Andre Spicer said his daughter had set up the stall in Mile End, east London, while thousands of music fans were on their way to the Lovebox Festival at the weekend.
Mr Spicer said his daughter burst into tears and told him “I’ve done a bad thing.”
Tower Hamlets Council has since cancelled the fine and apologised.”
These jerks deliberately frightened a 5 year old to death. Blatant terrorism on the part of THBC.
Thanks to Labour Left for the links.
Comment from Eoin Clarke @ LL: ”Authorities fine 5 year old girl £150 for illegal trading for selling cups of lemonade. May I remind you, as you read the story in the link attached, that only 1 person from the Falciani list has ever been prosecuted.”
GW: Council Officials on steroids. In Watford one has to have a permit to hand out leaflets!
