More Taxes on the way!!!!

When I get in my 1600 horse powered car, I do not feel guilty, I do not think about the consequences of Global Warming. Not that I actually believe half of the scaremongering done by our current batch of intelligent ministers sorry I mean inefficient wasters.
I get in my car for the following reason; it saves me time and effort and saves me money. I use it in emergencies; I use it to go to the major supermarkets for food shopping. It is used to get my wife to and from her place of work. I use it for the bloody convenience!! Ultimately I use it because I have no other real choice!
To try and get “Public Transport” for each or all of my reasons for driving, would entail about two hours of waiting around in cold draughty bus shelters, paying what would be an extortionate fee for being treated like a third class citizen, in a monolith of a vehicle that usually belches more diesel fumes out than an antiquated Chieftain tank, or all three of John Prescott’s jag’s.
The government, and by government I mean those thieving tossers Bliar and Brown, tweedle dee and tweedle dum of the world politic, have said we as a nation need to reduce our carbon footprint, our carbon emissions that purportedly that add to Global Warming.
Notwithstanding the simple fact that our contribution to aforesaid Warming is a meagre 2% of the worlds output, the biggest polluters are in fact, China, India and the good old US of A.
Super Tony and his side kick Dullard Brown have decreed that we the population of the UK, should pay through the nose to clean up the world!

If we as a family go out in the evening, we leave a light on, so as to deter thieves and vandals, so it doesn’t look like the house is empty, now we are being told that leaving a light bulb on adds to global warming,,,,,, For Fuck’s Sake the only cure for that is to start locking up the thieves, and make the streets safer!
Tell you what why not make the prisoners sleep in the dark, why not turn off all the lights in any Govt and council building, why don’t the powers that be understand, that until they start leading by example, we as a nation of pissed off malcontents, who long to string Bliar and Brown up by their shrivelled impotent testicles, will refuse to believe anything and everything they tell us!

18 Doughty Street

As readers will have noticed there is a link on my side bar, that directs one to 18 Doughty Street.

This is going to be a Independent Internet TV station, allegedly unbiased (unlike the BBC) and provide us with programmes that tell the truth.

Hopefully it does well, and they actually get the veiwers they need as well as the bloggers.

I do have concerns that this maybe a few Middle class twerps playing at TV, but I hope I am proved wrong, and I do wish them well, after all anything that helps the Political Parties start to tell the bloody truth, accept what they are doing is wrongm and try to change them has got to be a good idea!

we wait with baited breath for their first "broadcast"....

Binning the Chips or is it chipping the bins?

Having moved to Cheshire, from Lancashire, well Blackpool to be exact. I had no idea that in Blackpool, the council had "chipped" the bins.

To give a brief info/intro, Blackpool Council introduced about 2 years ago wheelie bins for all houses. Each home was given three bins with colour coded lids, one for household waste one for plastic and tin recyclables and one for paper.

We used to have weekly collections of rubbish and an additional fortnightly collection of recyclable rubbish. This changed as soon as the wheelies were introduced to one week household rubbish, the next week recyclable rubbish. So essentially the rubbish that cannot be recycled was reduced to fortnightly collections. Not withstanding the stench/smell of rotting food during the summer months.

In the area of Cheshire where I now live, the bins are collected once a week, and the rubbish is put out in black bin bags.

My two sons from my first marraige still live in the old home, as I have not sold it, more to do with the fact its their inheritance (unless Gordon Brown, thieveing bastard, decides otherwise) than a need for the money.

Then an article in the Daily Mail caught my eye, about bins being micro chipped!

Nah, didnt believe it after all why should someone decide it would be a good idea to chip a bin?
So on my next trip to Blackpool I looked at the bins, both the recucling bins had no chip, but yeah you've guessed it, the household rubbish bin actually had one!

Now this dont look much, its easily accessible, and easily removed with a scewdriver.

Inside is a small chip with World Tag written on it and the words "RFID-Logistic and Industrial Transportation".

Right, so I am shocked, not as yet overly concerned but definately shocked, and the biggest question on my mind is why? then what the fuck?

According to the press, who I hasten to add I have no great love for nor have I belief in 75% of the dross they write. These chips are there to help the councils to charge homeowners or residents for the waste they discard!

Now I aint Einstien, far from it, so why the fuck do the council want to charge again for something I already pay for in my council tax? Right I know as I no longer live in Blackpool, I no longer pay council tax there, but my sons do live there and do pay council tax.

I would like a few questions answered.

Who decided to spend my council tax money on these chips?
The chips have obvioulsy been with the bins since they were handed out two+ years ago, so why no mention of it before the Daily Mail blew the gaffe?

A quick call to the council elicited the following information.

If I remove the chip I am damaging council property!
If I remove the chip my bins will not be collected!
I could be prosecuted for tampering with the bins!

I answered, the bin is mine as I paid for it out of my council tax, no the lady said it belongs to the council, and I would be taken to court and fined for tampering with it.

Right Blackpool Borough Council,

1. Your property is on my land and as such is an inconvenience to me and my right to enjoy my property. Therefore I will charge you a daily rate for storage, equal to but not more than 4% or the council tax.
2. I already pay for the collection of the rubbish, and as such expect my rubbish to be collected or I shall see you in court for breach of contract!

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr money grabbing Bastards!!!
