The leader of the National Socialist Party of Germany has been fined and now faces the possibility of a criminal record - for killing 6 million jews in concentration camps.
Mr A. Hitler, of Whitehaven, Cumbria, received a visit from Copeland Borough Council last week, informing him that, as a result of simply attempting to eradicate the Jewish diaspora in central and eastern Europe, he would receive a fixed penalty notice.
"I couldn't believe it," said Mr. Hitler, who is a keen painter and decorator, vegetarian, and Father of Land. "The first I heard of it, a neighbour said the council had come round and photographed my gas ovens."
Copeland Borough Council explained that Mr Hitler had been warned on previous occasions but had chosen to ignore the letters he had been sent. "The Council have explained to residents that genocide and ethnic cleansing are unacceptable. Mr Hitler had been notified that his behaviour was unacceptable but he chose to continue."
The council also explained that there were appropriate places in the town centre for residents to have holocausts if they so wished.
If you wish to comment on this, frankly, unbelievable story, particularly if your blood boils whenever you feel Britain is turning into a 'nanny state' or that 'do-gooders' are telling us how to live our lives, why not contribute to the Have Your Say site at http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/talking_point/default.stm. Or you could simply go outside and punch a random member of the public and seethe until you turn red and keel over.
