This evening I was lying on my sofa reading when I heard the sound of someone's loud car radio in the street below, interspersed with periodic car door slamming. It went on for some time, so I finally got up to look out the window. What did I behold but two men in a Southwark Council
Prius, putting up a sign telling people they can't park in seven spaces on the street next Wednesday. And then taking a flash photo of the sign. Nine o'clock on Saturday night, people! Who says there is no dedication in public servants these days?
