I’m breaking from the normal strictly scientific topics to publicise a the new law being drafted by a Tory local Government in the Capital where it will soon be illegal to:
1. Lie down on the ground.
2. Give away, or allow anyone else to give away food or drink for free. (Unless for marketing purposes of course). This will force all of the companies who currently quietly give away old stock to put that food in the bin instead. It will also criminalise charities that run soup kitchens. Londoners prepare for an epidemic of NYC style dumpsterdiving.
Dumpster-diving: the latest trend to hit the city
3.Be homeless. Homeless people are to be fined. Because that makes sense.
Mayor of London, Borris Johnson
Makes you proud to be British.
On the plus side, these laws are totally impossible to enforce and you don’t need to be genius to see more loopholes than a tuna net but shh, nobody tell Boris.
NB: I feel I should make clear that this law will initially apply to an area little bigger than a cabbage patch. However, once these fundamentally foreign principles are written in to law, the legal precedent will be established and the boundaries will be a mere technicality.
