    Rather than realizing that’s politicians that making decisions that was true “scale off the eyes” moment.
    It writes “budget saving”, it means “poaching pockets”.

    Now honestly tell me, does that look like budget savings to you?

  2. Max says:

    Also, I was convinced that it was the contractor’s decision because you pay to them, not to the Council.
    Frankly, this is just racketeering and a hidden council tax rise applied to only those that live within CPZ zones.
    How could I have imagined it?

    It’s a little bit irritating (for me) that you post links to blogs that you have to register with to enter and see what could be potentially interesting news.

    Could you let “Love Perry Vale” know that?

    thanks very much

  5. Andrew Brown – whats going on with all of our bloggers?

    They’re falling like flies Commander. Time for you up your Catford celeb spotting posts.

  7. Andrew Brown says:

    On, Love Perry Vale, it’s clearly down to them how they manage their site. But I understand the frustration, so I’ve asked John Paschoud if I can cross post stuff I think would be of interest here and he’s agreed. Hope that keeps everyone satisfied.

    Re ‘Profiteering Council” a select committee brought to the attention of the mayor the 10% increase in the cost of a 6 day market traders licence was was excessive compared to inflation.

    Meanwhile due to the ‘Home Information Packs’ most people have opted for the cheap £6 search rather than the overpriced full search of £150.

    Despite a 44% increase in land searches there has been a 50% drop of income generated.

    The £6 fee is now to increase to £30 (500% ?) while a full search is to be reduced to £65 (60% ?).
