Look at this craphttp://kiteblog.dailymail.co.uk/2011/09 ... ength.html
That's, y'know, published writing? Labour are bad, Tories are great.
It is baffling and seems, on the face of it, no less arbitrary than the current set-up. I have been on the Boundary Commission website wading through the mind-numbing detail to find out more.
This is where blogs are shit. They're "stick something up every day". No-one's supposed to care if you can't be bothered to read the Boundary Commission report. "On the face of it"? Yeah, that's journalism, right there.
Watching the people on the right side of the road get good value for money, pay half the council tax
Unless you've lived there for about 20 years, the difference in council tax was built into what you paid for your house. Stop moaning. And rejoice at the sort of strokes Wandsworth tries to pull. From the Mail a few months ago (sneaking under the radar in the sport section):
WHAT A WAY TO TREAT THE YOUNG
Inspired by the London Olympics, the nation is being urged to become fitter, healthier and more active. The Government is pledged to attack the scandal of sedentary, overweight youngsters. If caught early, then they may become the sportsmen and women of the next generation.
And what is the contribution of London's Tory-controlled Wandsworth Council to this admirable objective? Why, it has decided to charge children £2.50 per head for using the adventure playground in Battersea Park at weekends.
A 'council spokesman' explained that weekends were terribly busy and that 'research has shown that half of those attending come from other parts of London'. As if they were intrusive aliens instead of playful children.
Difficult to know if this move is motivated by greed, ignorance or doctrinaire stupidity. No matter.
These municipal buffoons will have to be brought into line. Today would not be too soon.
