"How to treat Old People"

category international | history and heritage | other press author Friday September 30, 2005 01:26author by iosaf Report this post to the editors

2 case examples from this week on how treat old
people. Both examples are wrinkly old social caring
types, who protested against differing aspects of
Blair's New Labour regime.

One a retired social worker protesting 53.71 in council tax arrears.
The other a stop the war troublemaking yobo on pills.
comrade CND stop the war heckler war refugee party member famous for a day Walter :-)
comrade CND stop the war heckler war refugee party member famous for a day Walter :-)

One got sent to prison for refusing to paying her
council tax.

Sylvia Hardy, 73, (A retired social worker) was
sentanced to one weeks prison on monday
becoming the first female pensioner to be sent
to prison for refusing to pay council tax arrears.

She was found guilty of failing to pay arrears of
53.71 in council tax from last year - plus 10
costs - and was in breach of a 56-day suspended
committal order issued earlier this year.

She said in court :-

"I made a decision to withhold part of the council tax demanded by Devon county council because the increases during the past 10 years have risen by 50%."

"In one year alone the increase was 18.5% and in
another 10%. My occupational pension increases
by only 1.7% a year and the inflation rate by
between 1% and 3%."

"On top of this tax, we are required to pay the
highest water rate in the country, plus
ever-increasing payments for gas, electricity,
telephone, etc, well above the inflation rate."

"Undoubtedly this is totally unfair and has got to
stop,"

To which the court's chairman Louis Crowden ( a
young progresive meritocratic work hard all his life type)
said :-

"If everyone paid their debts on the basis of what
they thought appropriate this country would
descend into anarchy."

She was released from Eastwood Park Prison in
Gloucestershire after serving less than two days of
a week's sentence.

She had wanted to serve the full sentence as part
of her protest against rises in council tax, which all
households must pay to fund local services. But
she said the prison service had no choice but to
let her go after a "Mr Brown" offered to pay.


who is mister Brown ????

There are more old people with nothing better to do
than follow her anarchic example this spells the ruin of family values.

__________________________________________________

The other grey got kicked out of the New Labour
party conference for hecking. He's 82 years old, a
steering comitee member of "stop the war" in the
UK, the vice chairman of CND, as harmless as a
duck, and a life long party member.

Non trained precarious & enthusiastic stewards
did the dirty job.

Mr Blair has now apologised.

of course he has. they're all friends in the party as comrades.

The man was obviously looking to get his name in the papers.

& sadly a certain type of newspaper calls this man a hero.
