With regard to the post immediately below I am grateful to Flickr ( via Laura Appleyard) for this piece of Political scatology-Australian style. The relevance to the Borders? If someone could manufacture little flags bearing the images of all dog owners in the area (Perhaps as part of a licensing system) thus allowing the more irresponsible to be pilloried this would do wonders for the cleanliness of our region. Now there is an idea for theScottish Borders Council Director of Environmental Services, in effect the Poo Highheidyin.
If the policy fails then perhaps his/her features might be suitably displayed .
Some one should carry the can-or, rather the scooper, after all. That's what accountabilty is all about.
One can only hope we don't get a director called Winnie
