How annoying is this?

(On the envelope of my new council-tax demand.)

Who the fuck do they think they are talking to? This is typical of the completely disrespectful and patronising "down with the people" crap that we have to put up with in this town. The reason glasgow is SO shit is largely to do with the fact that it is run by the sort of people who think that insulting messages like this are acceptable.

At least they have seen the error of enclosing a leaflet boasting that 67% of council tax was spent on social services...

Set off to meet Clive this morning and as I had woken up very early, decided to walk by way of the sorting office to pick up a parcel which was waiting for me. The sorting office is in a part of town I don't normally go to, so it was a bit of a surprise to discover that it had become New Build Hell. Block upon block of hideous little legoland overpriced brick boxes misleading the occupants of future-slums into thinking that they had invested in a home. This made me smile, however:

Glamour! Sophistication!

Not really.
They can't mean C├ęsar Ritz? Surely? Must be Ritz Crackers.

Further on, I found an oxymoron lying in the street:

Free in The Sun. Even readers of The Sun throw this "gift" away!
