What throws this into sharp relief

Samizdata:

Well, who is the bully?

Is it the Council for ramping up tax by 400% from £19.10 to £96.98 per year on those who have to pay, with the sort like the Chairman, Councillor Pearce, of whom it is reported:

Ms Pearce… …said “with hindsight we perhaps should have sent out some kind of warning it was coming”.

and then went on to say:

“But I absolutely whole-heartedly believe it was the right thing to do and I would do it again tomorrow in a heartbeat,”

Aaaaggghhh!!! There are times it’s best not to comment, really and truly.

The moment I saw “the Chairman, Councillor Pearce”, how did I just know it would be “Ms effing Pearce”? And how many times have I written that such women should never ever be in charge of any organization?

So here it goes again with all this BS and I don’t feel well enough to do it. The main reason is that there may well be women who could do the job, but this ain’t them. Precisely the type who pushes herself forward for this is precisely the type to ban from any office.

Sociopathy is endemic in councils and thus Common Purpose types, male and female, infest council offices – in a firm they’d be HR. Male meathead yesmen, bizspeak thugs abound and are one thing but a demi-woman then refines that by bringing into play all the very worst female traits, never the good traits – hence that quote above.

What makes it worse, a thousand times worse personally for me, is that in the middle of the night now [02:30, having coughed and spluttered out of bed], I’ve just checked my email and my ex-gf is stuck at Domodedovo airport and can’t get home – now that’s a real issue. Her entire manner just now was the reason I fell for her so long ago – a real woman from an era when women were women, men were men etc.

Such a culture shock I just can’t explain. The reason I am so savage on the effing Ms Pearces is precisely that I’ve had such great role models as women to look up to, to compare the wasters to, that it casts the Ms Pearces into sharp relief.

Trouble is – one can’t escape these bitches, they come after us with tax bills and so on. I was asked the other day if I despised women.

What a stupid question – of course I despise the Ms Pearces, wouldn’t scrape one off my shoes but “women as a species”?  Absolutely not – start with our Julia.  I keep saying, over and over, that I have such good role models to look up to – sane, real women – and so, in dealing with a Ms Pearce, I tend to be a bit cutting, possibly not a productive thing as these bitches are always vindictive, they sense the disdain in our faces and redouble their nastiness.

The task real women and men now have is ridding public office of the Ms Pearces, Anna Soubrys and Owen Joneses and putting in proper women with sane views.

But of course, power corrupts, does it not?

    If Julia M were ever in charge of a council, I doubt I could afford the popcorn in the required quantities to enjoy the ensuing kerfuffle.

    It’s a fascinating thought, though.

      Julia has replied to this but modesty forbids her setting it in black and white here.

    I’m sure any increase of 2% or more triggers an election whereby the public are asked to accept it or not. This is why every year my council tax goes up 1.99%.

    Of course, what should really happen is that for every percentage council tax is increased, council employees earning above £50,000 take a pay cut of ten times the increase. That ensures the money is spent on services, not troughers and all those ‘chairmen’ find themselves paid appropriately for their abilities – nadda.

      The ‘referendum trigger’ only applies to the base Council Tax – this post refers to an additional mandatory precept, as used to fund the sub-units of parish/town councils etc. and is not subject to the 2% cap (which is probably why it’s going up so much). They just slip it out of one budget line and into another.

    Stealth tax in a sense.
