‘Have You Got The Right Paperwork For That Rotting Corpse?’

Groaning zombies will not be lurching along Brighton’s streets this year after an annual march was cancelled.

The Beach of the Dead parade will not go ahead in October due to spiralling costs and safety fears.

Sing it with me! ‘It’s ‘elf n’ safety gawn mad…’

Kate Amer, who led the first march in 2008, blamed an increase in stewarding and medical costs and event insurance for the decision to cancel this year’s parade.

She said: “It just costs too much and takes up too much time. Last year it all went way over the £2,000 budget.

“We just didn’t expect the sheer amount of people that turned up. It was ridiculous.

“We have had to go back to the drawing board because otherwise it would be too unsafe.”

Deemed unsafe, perhaps, by health and safety ‘experts’ like Mr Hampton?

    I fail to understand under what law the council can prevent ordinary people turning up and walking along public streets in Brighton, regardless of what they wear.

    Having grown up in the ancient era before PC and Common Purpose – and survived – I am becoming more inclined to take my bathchair onto the streets to join the angry young mob.

    “Fuck ya ‘Elfen Safety,
    Fuck ya Council Rules,
    Fuck ya bloody insurances,
    Yer a mob o’ friggin’ fools

    Fuck off !!”
