I’m often left scratching my head thinking, “what the ****?” over the decisions of councils at present. You’ll often hear scare stories in newspapers and I’ve often scoffed at them thinking “is that true?”. Well it wasn’t until recent years I began to realise that these stories were indeed true.
London is a total joke for the borrough councils sticking their oar in, knocking you upside down and shaking every penny out of your pocket. The fines they impose on motorists is absoltuely insane, my house mate had to break heavy after a pedestian stepped out infron of them in a yellow box, there was a space ahead of him. When they appealed the decision the council worker said it was clear it was a mistake, then low and behold another letter came saying NO, pay the fine.
Here’s the picture as proof:
It’s becoming a bit of a joke. I hear of more and more stories, it’s not just parking either. Councils are dictating to people about all manner of issues these days, having too tall of gates:
I keep on hearing other stories too, allbeit anecdotal accounts of how much of a C U Next Tuesday they are but there’s definitely some truth in the gripes.
I wonder where all this is going because they seem to be taking more and more liberties, not all the money they make is for the community either, a lot of it is creamed off in quangos and back scratches - like the CENSUS for instance, what a croc that is.
It’s anoying because they’re bringing in these laws with an Iron fist, if you don’t pay the council fine you’ll be summoned to court, failing that and you’ll end up in prison. All for parking in residents permit holder only bay for five minutes, whilst some Ugandan escaping war crimes photographs your car and tips off his underworld connections about lack of security.
