Not very sexy News. Only a small ray of sunshine among all the bad news but BBC News - Council rubbish bin collection fines to be scrapped. Don't get too excited, but this puts an end to a few councils nefarious activities, and suggests just how stupid it all became. Abusing anti terror powers, going beyond their legal powers, charging by the back door, silly fines for recycling mistakes, and even those fines for putting rubbish out on the wrong day are going.... "I put my bin out a day early, I must be a terrorist". They charged us if they couldn't collect our rubbish and had to come back. Maybe even the bin cameras are going as well? Also axed are Call out fees, pay as you throw schemes, forcing people to buy official rubbish bags from the Town Hall, all the stealth taxes. Redundancies in Bin Patrols? Street Spies sacked? It's not sexy news, but by fcuk it's good news. Erm, not for the Councils. Sorry.
