Am I the only
idiot in this
country who has to pay 850 odd
Quid a year, just to have my
'wheelie' bin emptied?
I work and live on an MOD site, behind a
green iron and razor topped wire fence.
Gloucester City and County Councils do not
provide me with
a) Street lighting: This has been u/s since 1985;
b) Road repairs - "that's not our problem. It's an MOD issue because we class the site as MOD property!";
c) Policing - "that's an Army issue - under the Official Secrets Act!";
d) Road sweeping - "you'll have to take that up with the Army!"
The only service I do
get, is my wheelie bin emptied every Monday morning, but only then, because they have to empty the site bins.
All that for £850 a year.
I think that you'll agree with me when I say that that is exceptional service from a Council who, it is alledged
, want to raise our Council
Tax to cover the deficite in council worker pensions!
Has anyone else been
over by their council?
