Default Spitting feathers

For diabolical tales of shame. Read at your own risk and try not to let your blood pressure go through the roof.

Dominic Cummings. We all know he he broke the rules specifically banning the use of second homes during the lockdown, among other things.

Fewer people knew about the planning breaches which the family were dishonest about and how they escaped some form of enforcement or sanction because they covered it up too long - similar to statute of limitations laws, it seems.

But now the property has been revalued and Council Tax appropriately reassessed. But not backdated for the 18 years their law breaking and continued dishonesty lasted.

But for the attention generated by the loathsome man's contempt for everyone else, they'd still be underpaying.

Taxes are for little people.

Better watch out that could offend someone.

(I say this because someone made a comment on a fish forum someone said something along the lines of "most mistakes are little people often look over" Now the poster wasn't talking about little people, but mistakes that are little and people often look them over, but about 10-12 people were outraged and said it was offensive. None of the 10-12 offended people appeared to be actual little people however, but it was a grammar mistake but some people are easily offended.)

See? This is why I'm a grammar nazi. All this could have been avoided.

Also, fish forum? Do you have much of a problem with bottom feeders and poisonous jellyfish like we do on here?
