More naked populism


Translation: 'We took a spanking in the council elections because of this, especially in London. People have noticed that we are involved in naked profiteering. We're f*cked. Quick, change it, do something, anything'

Oh well, the reaction may be populist, but it does seem sensible. A Camden parking vulture* once booked a bike on a yellow line. Its rider was lying ten feet away being treated by paramedics after a crash. They have also fined a man who stopped to change his false leg. Yes, really.

* - this is unfair. Vultures are useful creatures, that keep the area clean by eating carrion. A persistent, primitive, harmful parasite like a lamprey or tick or intestinal hookworm may be a better comparison.

Nothing wrong with attempts at populism - they have been the life blood of NuLabour after all. The only real surprise in my eyes is that Cameron didn't think of it first.

That's outrageous! I didn't hear about the cyclist being booked. Can you remember when this was?

Bloody hell.
