Asda, the supermarket chain, has been threatened with an antisocial behaviour order (ASBO) unless it withdraws “Hallowe’en” egg boxes from sale.
Councillors in Liverpool claim that the packaging will encourage people to throw the eggs. Richard Marbrow, of Liverpool City Council, said that he would seek an ASBO against the company if it kept the eggs on sale
Merseyside Police said that people could face criminal damage charges if caught throwing eggs at property. Asda said it did not intend to withdraw the boxes.
I do hope that the magistrates of Liverpool will send the City Council away with a flea in its municipal ear if this stupid application is ever put before them.
