It's a race for which side of the pond can be dumber...

Meet the new Teletubbies! Council recruits men with TVs strapped above their heads to walk the streets and warn public not to break Covid lockdown rules



Quote:
A council have recruited men with TVs strapped above their heads to walk the streets to police lockdown.

The bizarre move saw staff and volunteers pound the streets of Bradford, Yorkshire, with TVs, which weigh 18lbs and have a 19inch screen, hoisted on their shoulders.

Bradford Council announced the 'iWalkers' scheme this week but due to public backlash it has been forced to delete a Facebook post detailing its plans.

The scheme, which saw the TVs showing coronavirus rules, was announced via Facebook on Tuesday, but officials deleted the post just two days later.

The council claimed comments 'crossed the line into abuse of people who are working hard to help residents and workers in Bradford District stay safe and stop the spread of the virus'.

The authority has defended the move claiming the scheme has been 'well received generally by members of the public'.

Pictures show a man using a backpack to lift a monitor roughly one-foot above his shoulders.

It revealed the scheme had been funded by the Government and two 'iWalkers' hit the streets for two days.

Locals were left stunned by the initiative and slammed the authority for frittering away taxpayers' cash.

What happened to just using cardboard signs?
