Councils are pushing ahead with their plans to put computer chips in people's bins - some already have I understand. The plan is still to charge people for tthe amount of rubbish they throw away - the argument being you will pay less if you recycle more.
Let me remind you again that each house in the UK has to pay Council tax - ours is £75 per month. This money is supposed to pay for local services such as the police, the fire department etc. and rubbish removal. Yet the government wants us to pay again to have rubbish removed!
The thing that amazes me is that English people just pay these ridiculous taxes, they don't protest - well not seriously. Why on earth should we pay twice for rubbish to be removed? That makes sense to you?
Also if there was any doubt about the level of racism in the UK the following story sadly removes it. Read this and see what I have been talking about. http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/topstories/tm_headline=forced-out-by-race-hate-mob%26method=full%26objectid=19201083%26siteid=89520-name_page.htmlThis happened in Leeds in the 21st century! Mercifully a soupcon of progress lies in the fact that they were jailed.
