Do you remember the large painted saucy postcards which where erected by the Cleethorpes In Bloom team on Alexandra Road in the summer?

Because of the out-cry they were removed, bought and put up in the Odd Balls Crazy Golf gardens.

And because they were erected without permission, owner of Odd Balls, Terry Procter has applied for planning permission from North East Lincolnshire Council.

If permission is refused the postcards will have to be removed.

    In this thread:

    porcelainblak has made a tautological slip:

    "If apprehended, they should be sterilised to stop them breeding . . ."

    'to stop them breeding' is an unnecessary waste of breath or typing because if they had been sterilized they couldn't breed.

    'justsaying' implies that 'millionaire socialist' is a tautology. Certainly not what I understand a tautology to be. [A Definition, Tautology - a basically unnecessary repeated meaning using different words that have the same meaning.] Now she/he may believe that millionaire and socialist have the same meaning but in fact they are not so defined. There maybe some socialist millionaires or even millionaire socialists but the words do not have the same definition. The posters comment probably says far more about their own cultural/political background than it does their grasp of English Language usage.

    You know in some places they would be put in a gallery to be admired by the public and as a tourist attraction.This is what can happen when you let a Yorkie take control!

    Are you surprosed at a Labour Council having double standards? It's something of a tautology. A bit like millionaire socialist!

    So why do the council allow my bin lorry to have two cartoon buxom ladies on the side with the double entendre "the council says we have to do it twice a week" or something along those lines painted on the side?

    Double standards obviously.
