Problem Council House Neighbours

Council tax re-valuers want to charge us more if we live in a nice area. That ought to mean discounts for those of us who live in rough areas.

We have a huge council house in our street. The extended family is run by a grumpy old woman with a pack of fierce dogs.

Her car isn't taxed or insured, and doesn't even have a number plate, but the police still do not do anything.

Her bad tempered old man is famous for upsetting foreigners with racist comments.

A local shopkeeper blames him for ordering the murder of his son's girlfriend but nothing has been proved yet.

All their kids have broken marriages except the youngest, who everyone thought was gay.

Two grandsons are meant to be in the Army but are always seen out in nightclubs.

The family's odd antics are always in the papers.

They are out of control.

Who'd want to live near Windsor Castle?


I've actually met Phil the Greek once. He didn't insult me; I was gutted. :)

Dear Englishman,

Just a note to say we enjoy your website, and on this great day for the British and American Constitutions, you might enjoy The Knight, Never a dull moment on the road to Runnymede -- http://www.britsattheirbest.com/001008.php

I believe it ran close to Windsor Castle?

All the best,

Nobody likes a smart arse.
As an Englishman - born in the great depression , reared in war, growing in the austerity after this - I'm happy with the status quo that was.
You might prefer some politically correct leader.
Though I suspect you were born very recently. So can't help it.

"Nobody likes a smart arse."

Certain website's hit ratings prove you wrong there.... ;)
