The answer is a Tory government, to put paid to those whingeing overpaid underworking lazy rubbish collectors and firemen who think that they can hold the country to ransome. Thank goodness that we are no longer reliant on coal miners for our electricity, otherwise they'd be out by now too.
Not Southwark's fault; not Ken's fault, but rather the Government's fault. (see above!)
I'll tell you you what I find annoying is the lack of bins overall. I live on Tooley st and because none of my neighbours have a bin (a combination of them not being bothered to call the council and the council not bothering to provide them), I get all their rubbish outside of my house placed close to my bin. I will be really great when I come to sell the property, with one of the property's key features being the local refuse point.
Are we, as council tax payers, entitled to a refund for one weeks refuse collection? Dont you enter into a contract to provide services to us (as forced taxation)? We dont pay the refuse collectors, we pay you and therefore expect you to provide a service regardless of who you deal with.
If we withheld a weeks council tax, you would be down on us with the full force of your law but we on the other hand have no rights when you withhold a service. It stinks.
All I say to Labour voters is "Thanks for nothing"
Anyone, on a lighter side of things, anyone want to join me in dumping all my fish-filled rubbish on the councils front door at 3am tomorrow morning?
I'm game. but 3am is pretty pointless and smacks of fly tipping. If you want to make a point, I suggest 9am. And I did have fish on Sunday night, expecting the bits to be removed, as usual on Monday. And I am regretting it now.
(You're working for the wrong employer, you know, but what did your post about taxis home have to do with the congestion charge?)
Taxi and congestion charge was that the BBC provided Red Ken with a taxi for his interview even though "Mr Public Transport" knew very well that the tubes were running and its about 10 minutes away from Broadcasting House on the bus. In the meantime, staff who work very long hours with no notice cant get a taxi.
