Your Right to Dump Rubbish

Our friendly socialist government is currently sneaking through a bill to allow councils to refuse to collect rubbish “if homeowners fail to abide by stringent rules that may include leaving bins in the right place, sticking to weight restrictions and following strict recycling policies”.

Of course, as they’ll have the final word, what happens if you have a disagreement with the bin-men or an un-related falling out with the local council? And what of your council tax? Will you get a refund if rubbish is left uncollected? (Don’t be silly – we don’t have rights like that in this country – after all, this isn’t REALLY a democracy)

I have no problem with any of this – AS LONG AS THEY DON’T MIND ME POURING MY RUBBISH ONTO THE ROAD WHEN THEY REFUSE TO COLLECT IT!!
