You won’t believe why a council has got it in for cheese toasties
In a move straight out of the “health and safety gone mad” playbook, Bristol Council has announced that it is refusing a licence for a van to sell cheese toasties in the park, as a measure to prevent the development of motorcycle gangs.
Apparently, cheese toastie vans lead to truancy – truancy leads to anti-social behaviour – anti-social behaviour leads to motorcycle gangs. It’s like Bristol Council is the anti-Yoda.
Of course, piss-taking has been happening.
This (genuine) report sounds like the plot of the next Wallace and Gromit film. pic.twitter.com/FUpZieOwyB

Ladies and gentlemen… Bristol. A town full of roving gangs of drunken bikers on the look out for cheese toasty wagons. Imagine The Warriors with added dairy.https://t.co/Af1okKnZzV
