8 oclock this morning the Toyota Celica was still obstructing the contractors, its
owner having parked in a space marked Free before the bays were suspended and
gone away for more than a day. All perfectly legal but acting within
the law is no defence against the corrupt Bexley council. The
owner was promptly issued with a penalty notice.
Fortunately the contractors men have more sense than the average council officer so they moved the car. You can see it on the right in this picture (taken at 1 p.m.) still with the penalty notice displayed on its windscreen.
