Any Old Iron?

With just 24 hours to go until the promised removal of the redundant street lamps here on Victoria Parade, excitement has reached fever pitch.

Already a number of families have camped out on the freshly mown grass to be in the best possible position to watch tomorrow's spectacular event. Others have celebrated by digging up the new flowers that have recently been planted by our local council, and running off with them in carrier bags.

It promises to be a big day tomorrow, and I'll be bringing you all a minute-by-minute update on how Kent County Council and their sub-contractors EDF are progressing.

Well some people dig flowers, man!

I suspect that they are just claiming the discount on their council tax, refused to them by the council, despite their protestations as to the unfairness of it all.
"I've got seventeen kids and a workshy husband to support." And, "I don't think I should be paying twice as the two semi's I infest are now actually one house."

Sorry, I may be wasting blog, here.

I get the feeling that these 'members' of our society will not be paying council tax at all.
In fact, quite the opposite!
