8 November - Malevolent Imposition of Craske Entrapment (MICE) - click any image for photo gallery (3 images)

Faded road markings - DISABLED Bexley council gestapo car

Last weekend a friend nearly got ensnared by the parking gestapo after unwittingly driving into a parking bay in The Broadway and straddling almost invisible white lines. I didn’t have my camera with me at the time and those taken later after dark didn’t show how poor the lines are. Maybe the one on the left will do the trick. Many years ago it may have said “DISABLED”. Just a car length away was a Bexley council gestapo car, they like to call them MICE which I assume has something to do with them being operated by rodents. It didn’t seem to be doing anything with its spying equipment, which is just as well because no warning camera sign was in evidence anywhere and without it MICE operations are illegal. The odd thing about the situation was that either the gestapo car or the one in front of it had squeezed into an already occupied single bay as is clearly shown in the third image in the gallery.

Incidentally, my friend has said my description of the original incident is far too generous towards Craske’s gestapo. They did, he said, give him the OK to leave his car where it was, but he didn’t really trust them. Quite right too. No one should trust Bexley council and tomorrow I will reveal more about just how corrupt our council probably is.
