Nanny state?

SIR - What a sad pathetic nanny-state country this has become! The moral minority of net curtain twitchers seem to have it in for just about any decent responsible person who only wants to live an enjoyable life! I refer of course to Torridge District C

SIR - What a sad pathetic nanny-state country this has become!The "moral minority"of net curtain twitchers seem to have it in for just about any decent responsible person who only wants to live an enjoyable life! I refer of course to Torridge District Council's recent proposals to restrict dogs from running free in public parks and on beaches.I walk my dog in Victoria Park and keep her on her lead around the children's play area only allowing her to run free (as nature intended) at the further end by the rugby ground. Whenever she defecates I clear it up and place it in one of the dog litter bins as do the majority of other responsible dog owners.She is a very friendly young dog and requires at least one good run per day and this is also good exercise for her overweight owner!
