The green bin is for garden waste, including twigs and tree branches, right? Imagine my surprised when the dustmen refused to empty my green bin because I’d placed an old wooden walking stick in it! How ridiculous is that, after all, doesn’t wood come from trees? What frightens me is, under proposed new Government bills that may become law, as mentioned in the Queen’s Speech, local councils will get even more powers to f**k us up, including, retaining business rates they collect, that up ’til now is handed over to Central Government. Interestingly, under the proposed Digital Economy Bill, every household acquires the legal right to fast broadband. Why legal right?
