Thank God estate managers hmlhawksworth were on hand to make sure the perils of Jonathan Barnett's dangerous door mat were alleviated. Who knows what kind of accidents could have occurred had they let him keep it?
What nonsense. It may have become an overused phrase in the past few years but it has to be said that this truly is health and safety gone mad. Since when did a door mat become sinister?
It beggars belief that someone is actually employed to routinely check that no evil door mats, or vicious bunting at village fetes, are not compromising people's safety.
Why not just provide all tenants in Mr Barnett's block of flats with cotton wool to wrap themselves in or rebuild the estate with padded walls? Unlike these overzealous pen pushers we tend to have a bit of common sense.
Proof that plans work?
HARROW'S authorities must ensure the expansion of the town centre does not ruin the lives of existing residents.
Many people in the borough are worried - and justifiably so - that the infrastructure will collapse if 3,000 new inhabitants move in.
Harrow Council, the police and the local health authorities SAY they are working behind the scenes to cope with the extra strain on health facilities, roads, transport, utilities, schools and crime.
But apart from a few reassuring words, there remains little evidence in the public domain that anyone has a competent handle of the situation - if they infact do.
We need actual proof, now, that the plans will work and that they can be implemented before thousands of new flatdwellers arrive.
