Nanny's Pedestrian Tax
As loyal readers know, councils are the enemies of the people.
However, even I a very cynical individual was gobsmacked when I read about Canterbury council's attempt to screw their paymasters (their voters) out of even more money by slapping a pedestrian tax on them.
Yes, you did read that correctly, a pedestrian tax!
Seemingly the Tory run council tried to charge the residents of 14 houses in Whitstable £16 for the right to walk across some land (aka Bison's car park) at the back of their houses (bought by the council in 1995 via compulsory purchase).
The council tried this little scam on when it sent letters to the residents asking for £122 per annum for vehicular access to the rear of their houses.
Unsurprisingly the residents told the council to fuck off, and a firestorm of negative publicity engulfed the council.
Can you guess what happened next children?
Yes, that's right, the toads in the council backed down and claimed that the were "reviewing the situation".
In other words they know they can't get away with such blatant theft, and are now looking for a "face saving" exit.
As loyal readers know, when the bright light of publicity is shone on Nanny's greedy little scams she backs off and pretends it was a misunderstanding.
Like all bullies Nanny needs to be stood up to, otherwise she will get away with murder.
