Councillor blocks parking for ‘annoying pop pops’

Plans for bike parking spaces at a popular meeting place have been blocked by a councillor who calls motorcycles ‘pop pops’.   Proposals for motorcycle bays at the bike-friendly Central Kiosk in Walton on Naze, Essex, were blocked when Cllr Jan King wrote to Essex council that she was ‘very concerned’ about ‘pop pops’. Her email said: ‘Just imagine standing on the...

I bet she's a happy little number to work with.

Let me guess what her profession was - err.. primary school teacher.

Sad isn't it.

Could be wrong..

but ......there is a bikers meet at the 'Central Kiosk' (, where they want some bike parking. If you do street view on google earth you can see Clr King's shop called 'The Shop' (declared by her as an interest ) and parked there is a couple of other mobile kiosks, 'The Beach Kiosk' and 'The Lollipop Kiosk'

sour grapes perhaps?

Pop Pops?

Hmmm, not sure we should take a grown-up seriously if they are putting in a supposedly valid objection in baby language! perhaps she means lolly pops or lawn mowers or microlights, who knows? she's daft as a brush!

Suppose she would call my Panther 600 single a boff- boff or a thump-thump.

I expect when she goes to work she calls her colleagues" icky sticky woo woos" and tells them she's off for a drive in her "Wizz wizz"

Just What?!

Nice to see that nutters can still get into positions of influence, this seems more like a personal dislike of the so called 'intense and annoying' sound of bikes, not exactly a valid reason for a complete ban on new conveniences for bikers.

By the way, Ralinoco, your comment made me laugh out loud at work,in full view of my Boss, I hope youre happy! haha

not all bad...

This might actually be doing the little village some good...

all this extra custom from bikers visiting...

I bet she drives that Nissan Nivara parked around the back of  'the shop' (ingenious name by the way :/ )

Who's annoying?

Can we ban councillors? They are as annoying as hell, with their self rightious attitude sticking their noses into our everyday lives. Just look at the last elections for godsake!!!

'Just imagine sitting at home watching the Motogp on your telly, when some drivelling gobshite knock's on your door and won't sod off - it creates a hell for any self respecting biker '

And if she doesn't know what that is... just look in the mirror...

Then why don't you join the Taliban, seems that your personal viewpoints are in sync with them. You will also benefit your self esteem by buying one of these as it'll hide that dodgy hairdo
