It is rather getting to me. That is: the fact that the British are now so utterly spineless, brainless, and feckless that they can't see anything as right or workable unless the Master Race says so. If it's german, it must be right.
How pathetic. How shameful. Nothing on earth could make me want to be like a german.
No, the British are not spinless, etc. There are hundreds of "resistance" groups fighting the fight ... you are being deceived by the media, which rarely reports their activities. I was speaking to a man in London over the weekend, who has had 800 parking tickets for his small firm ... and paid three ... he keeps a grinder in his van and regularly releases cars from clamps. What we do have is a conspiracy of silence.
Ah there's more of us than first thought, my husband has relieved the pressure on a few wheels with his grinder.
At the moment I'm in contact with the council over service charges, I received yesterday an invoice for £227 for actuals concerning 2010/11, apparently the bill I've already paid was an estimate, the added £227 brings it to £1017, I've asked for justification of this legalised extortion. One of the actuals is £20 for rubbish bins and £2.46 for bulk items. Seeing as I already pay council tax for rubbish I've asked for a refund on the CT, and seeing that most of the bulk items are those that are dumped by passing motorists and those living in houses close by I will not pay even £2.46 for other people's rubbish to be removed.
I've also taken heed of what Dr North & others are doing, I've requested FOI for a breakdown on administration/management charges, which amount to almost half of the SC bill. I've probably gone about it all wrong but I'm trying.
