I used to think that the wheelie bin nazi was a south of Hadrian's wall phenomenon. The horror stories of the jumped up bastards who are supposed to serve us turning into power crazed nazi-esque thugs are all too common.
Unfortunately, it seems that the never ending march of council officialdom has goose stepped its way over the border into Jockland.
In Dumfries the local council, (or Bastards as I like to refer to the council), has started a new 'initiative' for the collection of household rubbish.
Everyone has a wheelie bin as is the norm, however strict rules have been circulated to all households regarding the use of the bins. Bin lids must be fully closed of your bin will not be emptied. Any bags placed to the side of the bin will be lifted, however the bags must be the ones provided by the council at a cost of 50p each! If you have the audacity to leave out an un-approved bag, you get a love letter from the bin man stuck onto it explaining the reason for the bag being left. Cheeky bastards!
It's about time all the power mad loons that 'run' our councils got a severe reality check. Who the fuck pays their wages!
It's bang out of order. It's not as if we can pick and choose who deals with our household rubbish so the bastards have us by the nuts. Time for a change, throw it open to the private sector and let them compete for our custom.
Anyone who complains to the council gets the sadly predictable reply that the new initiative has been started in order for the council to meet its re-cycling targets. Complete bollocks.
