LibertyScott gives his opinion along with his report, "this approach by councils is simply fascist." Yes, it is. A big Sieg Heil to Barnet council, and to its confreres Harrow and Bromley .
From Not PC a few weeks ago: "PJ O'Rourke points out that when used items have real value -- Ferraris for example -- they don't need to be 'recycled,' they get sold. 'Recycled' is what happens to stuff with no value, or with so little value only a government regulation can make enough people care." And to make people care enough, these councils have apparently decided, you have to scare the fiscal bejesus out of them.
Meanwhile, NZ councils are scaring the fiscal bejesus out of residents with huge rate rises yet again to pay for "PC nuttiness."
