Welcome to the Nanny State tea drinkers. Council officials in Northampton Borough have ordered the charity, who serve tea and cake at the 12th century Delapré Abbey, to take their business to the car park because the tea drinkers are too friggin noisy. Yes, all the noisy tea slurping that goes on is apparently disturbing people who are trying to enjoy the tranquility of the historical abbey. Geez and we all know how off putting noisy tea drinkers can be! Planning officer Andrew Holden told the Sun newspaper “We want to keep the garden peaceful. It was being disturbed by tea drinking.”
Psst Hmm, I suspect the business is doing far too well for the council’s liking !
