Eight perfect reactions to the traffic warden who ticketed Tommy Robinson’s bus
Not all heroes wear capes, some wear the usually hated black cap and white shirt of the traffic warden, like the happy man who slapped a parking ticket on the bus being used as a stage by Stephen Yaxley-Lennon – a.k.a. Tommy Robinson. The offending vehicle was parked outside the Old Bailey, where Yaxley-Lennon was found guilty of contempt of court.
This is the beautiful moment, and the even more beautiful aftermath:

The ticket was issued for “parking in a restricted street during prescribed hours” and carries a penalty charge of £130, reduced to £65 if paid within fourteen days, so he’d better get it done before sentencing.
A lot of Twitter took the laughing warden straight to their hearts.
Nobody loves a traffic warden … apart from this guy who ticketed Tommy Robinson's campaign bus outside the Old Bailey and laughed off all the abuse from Yaxley-Lennon's band of thugs.pic.twitter.com/Zl75zKN2aG

A traffic warden may not be the hero we wanted, but he’s the hero we need.

Journalist and historian, Mike Stuchbery had this reply for them.
Good one – just a bloke doing his job. Stop hounding anyone who won't bow to your little mate.
