Another quickie today as I need to write a horrible letter to my local council as I discovered a court summons on my doormat. Apparently the incompetent twats failed to inform me that a single council tax payments had failed to make it to their coffers. This isn’t an unusual thing as Calderdale Council’s council tax department is one of the most useless in the country. Which is saying something when you think about how many other rubbish councils there are out there. You only have to read the Rotten Boroughs section of Private Eye to see that I am not alone in my despair at local government idiocy.
Back in the early days of this Century, I made some money by saying the odd funny thing in public. On one of these occasions a fellow funny talker told me that I should write a blog (because that was the sort of thing funny talking people did back then.)
Now, I’m not the sort of person who does things the easy way, so I rejected all the ready made blogging platforms and started my own website. Since then it’s become a repository for whatever stuff is bubbling out of my brains and a directory of various podcasts and videos that I’ve made with my friends and is completely unnecessary.
