Very good, a 2010 video where the guy sez most of the crisis is over (00:30)

2010, isn't that where they started cutting cops according to your graphs?

Right, 2010 was the year when Tory government started the austerity in the UK.

And the result can be seen. Cut the police force 14% and have crime to increase 14%. :roll:

Never argue with "instruments" of a police state. Either start a revolution or accept the situation.

Sounds like Brits are slowly waking up to this reality and starting a revolution; I hope?

There is no austerity.

It's just that more and more of it is jizzed up against the wall (foreign aid) or appropriated by the looter class (gold plated council pensions with early retirement at 55) or insufficient because of changes to the population (historically enormous migration means pressure on all infrastructure).

Jeez, look at that. As a percentage of GDP, it is the same as 1940..when there were 500 Heinkels over London every day.

The US is on that path too. Perpetual military mobilization pissed against the wall defending the rest of the world, platinum pension plans for high level state employees, widespread political corruption, all to the detriment of solvable domestic needs.

"You got a licence for those empty crisp packets lad?"

Quote:
Council workers slapped a roofer with a £300 fine for keeping snack wrappers in his work van because he doesn’t have a licence to carry waste.

Stewart Gosling, 43, kept the stash of empty crisp packets and water bottles in a plastic commercial waste bag in the back of his white van.

But when he was pulled over by council workers carrying out spot checks, they told him he was breaking the law for carrying the rubbish without permission.

Image

He has tried to appeal the fine but has been told he will end up in court if he doesn’t pay the penalty issued at the roadside.

Stewart said: 'It’s so infuriating. The working-class man gets penalised for going to work basically.

'I’ve not fly-tipped. I’ve not left it in someone’s garden. It’s frustrated the hell out of me.

'There was just a bag of rubbish, bottles, crisp packets, newspapers and sandwich wrappers.

'What gets me is the lack of common sense. It’s a lot of money for one bag of rubbish.'

The roofing contractor was driving through Chingford in North East London when he was pulled over by Waltham Forest Council workers.

They searched his vehicle before asking him if he had a waste carriers’ licence - required by any business that transports commercial refuse.

Stewart, a married father-of-four, said: 'I got out of the van and he had a look.

'They were talking about a plastic bag around two feet high, which was filled with rubbish from my lunch. He just said, "You’re going to be fined."'

Stewart from Cheshunt, Herts., was handed a fixed penalty notice for 'failure to furnish documentation (waste carriers licence)'.

He was ordered to pay £300 within 14 days of May 23, when the incident occurred.

Stewart said he appealed the sanction, but there was a 'delay' in the council’s response.

When he did find out his appeal was declined, he claims he asked for clarification on the cost of the fine but was on holiday when the local authority replied.

Stewart could be prosecuted for failing to pay the penalty on time, but says he has no plans to settle the fine.

He added: 'It seems a bit steep to be honest. A warning would have been more understandable.

'It just aggravated me. It should be common sense. I had no idea you needed a waste licence, you have to be polite to these people but it annoyed me.'

A Waltham Forest Council spokesman said: 'The waste in this case was being transported in commercial refuse bag in the trader’s vehicle.

'Regardless of what the items are, if waste is being stored in a commercial refuse bag in a trader’s van it is necessary that they have a valid waste carriers’ license (sic).

'It is widely recognised as best practice for tradesmen to be licensed to avoid legal repercussions, in the event they are required to transport even small quantities of waste.'
