Surprise surprise.

Surprise surprise, Councils are making hundred of millions from parking charges and fines accoring to this mornings Telegraph link here.

Had to nip into Cardigan yesterday and the minimum car park charge was an eye watering £3.50. No wonder the car park was empty, and no wonder I just parked up and waited for the Mrs to do her five minutes of whatever, and no wonder town centres are slowly dying, wounded as they are by sky high rates and those charges.  

PS. Anybody recognise the street in that top photograph? I do Smiley

My first job at fifteen, messenger boy for LLoyds Shipping in Norfolk House just around the corner, and Croydons first high rise office block. 

£4.10s a week, sacked after twelve I think it was - and the first good thing that ever happened to me in the world of work. Spent many hours watching Croydon transform itself from the home of retired Admirals to a mini New York for the commuter class.

Re: Surprise surprise.

Well for your first real job that's quite good, as we know it can be quite scary the first time you venture out in the the 'adult' world.
