Looking for people to blame and name-calling will not really help anyone much. As for the lady inquestion doing her job, it is a question of ensuring that she does it properly. It is her job to carry out the policy of her council - not to make it.

As has been pointed out, even the licensing law does not support the interpretation that the lady is using and it is also incompatible with the HRA.

The best approach is to contact (sensible) local councillors and inform them of the true legal position and to get them to change their policy and call the dogs off.
