The new bins have just been delivered to me. Wonder how long it will take for them to blow away as there is no way I will tie or fix them to anything to hold them in place. That's the S. I. C's job. After all, it is covered by our council tax payments.

Did ya not just report them as lost property to the police then?  You actually accepted delivery of them? ;-)

I didn't accept delivery of them. They were left outside the house and they're still sitting there.

They've been delivered to you, you know they are there, if they blow away into someone elses property because you've been too childish to do anything with them you will be liable and you've done so publicly on the internet.  You dozy, childish pillock.

Says it all. Do as you're told while happily pandering to them.

I wonder who actually came up with this idea, and is inflicting it upon us? Was it the council, or was it the government?

^ A bit of both, along with the EU and god knows who else. By the time each one has stirred the pot and added their own cockups to the mix, you end up with the pointess and virtually unworkable behemoth clusterfurk we have being ladeled up to us plebs....

 

Its the downside of 'maximum government', aka. 'too many cooks spoil the broth'. We need rid of some of the layers, so that those making the plans and decisions are also having to tolerate the outcome of them first hand, instead of all the hiding behind and finger pointing by one layer at some other layer to get themselves off the hook. A national and a local government worked well enough pre '73, and the sooner we get back to that the better.

 

The KISS principle has long since been discarded and forgotten. (That's the 'Keep It Simple, Stupid' principle, for the ignorant).

Most of the lefties I meet want to stay in the EU, reckon leaving the European family is a disastrous
idea. So they must be happy with Ted Heath's bold step into Europe. Even the SNP seem to think it
was a good decision by our Tory masters, they want to stay in at all costs.
Brexit is going tits up anyway, all the parties are split, might as well accept, once you're in you
canna get oot.
Brussels are doing their utmost to make sure of that.

Congratulations to the parts of Shetland that are now able to recycle materials. Every little bit helps.

^ Tesco tries to convince us they do the same for us, and that's a lie too.

The preparations and plans were laid much sooner, certainly, and that's not to the credit of anyone involved, but it was 1st Jan '73 when the fuse was lit and our souls were sold with the signing off on the deal.

 

I'm getting pretty close to the stage now of no longer caring about who gets unloaded, EU, Westminster, Holyrood or the SIC, we just need two from the four gone as a matter of urgency.

 

Four tiers cost a bankrupting fortune to just maintain, and by the time they all stick their oar in to everything, a bigger dog's dinner couldn't be created if they set out specificaly to make one.
