Footer mania

Something has got to be done about the footers that local authorities use. They are nearly a foot long, is that why they are called footers? What is the point, no-one reads them or takes any notice of them. 

Here is the one from Redbridge; can anyone find a longer one?

I now moderate comments in the light of the Delfi case. Due to the current high incidence of spam I have had to turn word verification on.
