Life in Soviet Britain - Chitty Chitty Bang Bang banned.

Jesus fecking wept, the latest bit of jobsworth cockwaving of rules:
Movie motor Chitty Chitty Bang Bang has been banned from a lord mayor’s procession — for not having an MoT.

Thousands of people were looking forward to seeing the famous flying car, but cops said they would not bend the rules. Spokesman Harry Mitchell said: “Our priority is the safety of the public and we cannot make exceptions.” [...]

Helen Selleck, the city council’s events manager, said: “Although the road is closed for the procession, it is still classed as a public highway and the DVLA is clear that all vehicles in the procession need to be fully covered.”
Someone needs to have a boot inserted up their arse with severe force for this one.

You just know that had the Nazi's won the war that these people would be quite happy to work for them an carry out whatever orders they were given.

Why was I not surprised to read this ?
Solution, remove the engine ( so it is no longer a 'motor vehicle' ) and pull the thing along the road with ropes ( handing out flyers explaining why with full Name n Shame details ).
