Nanny has yet again shown her true colours wrt her petty mindedness and jobsworth attitude towards her subjects. Ian Norfolk made the mistake of trying to park his car in Hull some 14 months ago, that was the start of a very sorry tale indeed.
When Mr Norfolk parked his car (perfectly legally) he bought a parking ticket, and went to visit his mum. On his return imagine his surprise to see that, despite the fact the parking ticket had one hour left to run, a traffic warden was in the process of issuing him a ticket.
Ker Farking Ching!
Mr Norfolk explained to the warden that he still had an hour left, the warden agreed and admitted that she had made a mistake.
Ermmm...no, not quite!
In Nanny's world nothing is ever so simple; because the warden had officially issued the ticket, the warden told Mr Norfolk he would have to appeal.
Some 14 months on, having taken on Hull City Council and endured threats from bailiffs (who extorted £434.36 from Mr Norfolk and pushed him into mortgage arrears), he has finally managed to get the council to admit that they were wrong and have offered to pay a refund.
Councils have become the enemy of the people!
