Girl, 5, fined £150 for lemonade stand


#1

Wouldn’t happen if Corbyn was in power, all I’m saying.


#2

Lock her up. Throw away the key.


#3

Well done, she’s 5.


#4

Well she should’t have been illegally trading on the streets so…


#5

Ahaha fucking hell can you even imagine these people going up to a little girl and telling her she was getting fined £150?







(Yeah, I can actually. Fucking hell)


#6

Presumably they said it to her dad.


#7

It’s the only way she’s gonna learn.


#8

I think they palmed him a tenner and thanked him for the tip off


#9

The implication in the article is that they didn’t.

(the fine has been rescinded now anyway)


#10

“She just wanted to put a smile on people’s faces. She was really proud of herself,” he said.

Sounds like she needed taking down a peg or two.


#11

Actually the report indicates that he must have been right there.


#12

Not bothered by the council workers as they’ll just have been following procedures etc, but massively irked at whoever will have dobbed them in.


#13

It might be lemonade just now, but soon it’s crystal meth and that £150 begins to look pretty small.


#14

But she’s destroying the artisan lemonade brewers of East London. They did the right thing m9.


#15

She’s lucky not to be locked up tbh


#16

The fine is clearly made out to the dad.

Also the dad is responsible for this.


#17

isn’t this a form of child labour?

seems very dodgy


#18

that was my thought, until i realised she was a child genius, who can clearly get away with absolutely anything.


#19

I call bullshit. The dad wanted to make a quick buck.


#20

Sure now she’s just a little girl selling lemonade. But some day, she’ll be a grown man selling stadiums… and quarries
