Apparently councilor Iain Malcolm Miss Piggy and her fellow sows in the cabinet have recognised the problems caused by parking charges in South Shields town centre and have decided to take “decisive action”. At least that’s what ‘Big’ Ed Malcolm claimed during his budget presentation at last week’s full council.
According to this blithering idiot, South Tyneside is going to adopt the North Tyneside model of charging 1p a minute – he reckons no one will object to paying 1p for a minute’s worth of parking.
This new ‘radical’ shift in policy means that motorists will now pay 60p per hour instead of 70p. The machines will not give any change nor will the motorist get any extra time in lieu of their change.
With fuckwit policies like this, its hardly surprising our town centre has become so popular with the Foreign Secretary, David Miliband a ghost town.
