Twenty-seven councils and a Government department have paid private investigators to spy on their behalf, research shows.
The Department for Transport is among a range of public organisations that have paid private firms to spy on their behalf, while it has been claimed some 14 bodies, including 10 councils, may have commissioned potentially illegal surveillance.

Well this is unnerving...More so, because this news looks like it will be buried under Cyprus daylight robbery scandal.
What a messed up world we live in!

The last company I worked for here in the States, was actually British owned and I met alot of Brits here on work visas. I've been to England about a decade ago and loved it, however many of my Brit co-workers have now moved here permanently and say that their country is, in their words, "Fu** All, gone to the dogs."

What has your bakeries rodent problem got to do with council tax?
Council tax is for council services.
- Refuse collection
- Street Lighting
I don't see "Pest Control" in that list. The fact is, the bakery is responsible for its own pest control. They can handle it themselves, or hire a company, but it is NOT the responsibility of the council nor paid for via council tax (or in the case of business', uniform business tax).
