Greed like no other

It's official. There is no limit to the greed of South Gloucestershire Council. They have actually taken me to court, adding £85 in "costs" for the sum of £0.09p. That's right. NINE PENCE!!! Unless I pay £85.09 within 14 days, they will send the bailiffs who will add £310, bringing the total sum to £395.09. This is the contempt with which they treat us.

  1. They even obtain liability orders for less than 9p......

    Debt collection on behalf of councils is booming as people are chased for as little as 1p (Sunday Times)

    "....A freedom of information request to North East lincolnshire council revealed it issued 1,387 court orders for debt of less than £25 between 2006 and 2011 including 82 for less than £10 and three for just one penny...."
