"That's a smashing idea Deb. I mean I found two full dirty nappies in dukes head once.. therefore definitely should not allow any babies in the park either"

"Agree Jen, using that logic Ive also seen a lot of anti-social behaviour in the parks (no dogs and bikes involved), so why don't we just close the parks and build houses on the land.  When did we start becoming so intolerant?"

"It is a legal requirement of dog ownership that dogs are given a suitable chance to exercise off lead every day. So let's not go down this route please or all the responsible dog owners will then be in breach of the law. "
