There are ways, and there are WAYS

A COUNCIL in Newcastle has taken the extraordinary step of stacking two empty shipping containers on a clifftop to spoil water views for householders suspected of illegally cutting down trees.

I love this. I think its a great idea. The residents are complaining of being treated like children, and the council agrees. I think its fantastic.
The rest of the article features quotes from angry residents bleating about how unfair it is, but I say sucked in. They may not have all down the chopping, but you can bet they're all enjoying reaping the rewards. At least they were. You can bet more people know who did it than are letting on as well, its how these things go.

3 kindred spirits ~ This bugs them too!:

Well there go the property values for sure!!
I do love hearing people whine about water/harbour/any views because its all such shit isn't it? Really.
I like trees than I like a lot of people, can you imagine cutting a tree down (or drilling a hole in it and filling it with poison which would be far more discreet... morons) for the sake of some blue squiggly stuff?
Honestly some people need to rearrange the priorities of life!

Well in their defence, depending on where the property is located, having water views can add $100K's to your property value...
