His "parking tickets" read like a 419 scam email.

Britain's biggest landlord has banned 'battered wives' and plumbers from his properties

Not sure if biggest is related to him or his empire, the Plumber thing is amusing mind especially after banging on about it being "economics".

She's 72 FFS! And not wanting hordes of people turning up every day and disrupting filming is hardly unreasonable.

There was a programme on Channel 4 around a week ago called "Confessions of the Paparazzi" which said that this story was completely made up by the same pap who took the photos.

I was in Spar on Sunday afternoon and in front of me in the queue was a grumpy looking old git who, upon being asked if he wanted a 5p carrier bag replied along the lines of

"no, its the principle, Im not paying money to you to advertise because your names on the bag"

He picked up his bottles of milk and his paper and grumped out of the shop. Guess which paper he had bought....

Heroically encouraging speeding and endangering lives. What a prize bell!

I was secretly hoping the pay-off was that he dropped his milk

That reminds em of the run-up to the introduction of the bag-charge.
All the interweb-know-alls breaking cover to let you know "It's illegal to make you pay for a bag if it's got their name on it".

Oh really, I'll just walk out with this then? Image


Anyhow, I think there's scope for a "Totally untrue bellend crap that mailites say" thread.

Twat. If he was that bothered about it he could turn the bag inside out.

An update...
A MAN has been charged in connection with an incident in which a motorist got into an ambulance and moved it to free up a parking space.

Paramedics were treating a patient in the rear of the emergency vehicle which was parked in Malt Court, Pelican Way, Newbury at the time.

Alan John Dale, 67, has been charged by postal notification on one count of taking a motor vehicle without consent, one count of obstructing/hindering an emergency worker and one count of use of a motor vehicle with no insurance.

Paramedics were providing emergency care to the patient on the afternoon of December 29 as the motorist entered the cab and released the handbrake, before exiting the ambulance and driving his car into the newly vacated space.

Mr Dale, of Tangley Farm, Hampshire, will appear at Reading Magistrates Court on March 23 2017.

Angry father gets his own back on council bosses who fined him £60 for taking his son, six, on term-time holiday - by paying the fine in coppers

Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... osses.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Utter bell. The effort involved in this, ordering, collecting and emptying the coppers into a bucket, just to make a council worker's day that bit worse is so petty. If he'd chosen to slot one coin at a time into Gove's ring until the debt was settled he might have a point but this is nothing to do with the school or the caaaaaancil.
