Kevinhit's suggestion of a turd tax , made me think we could all do with a bit more of a laugh regarding council 'charges', so Im starting this short thread for spoof ideas from you Wiki folk , for the Council to consider , on how they can fleece you some more, and tongue in cheek ways how it could be implemented! Come on people , let your imagination go wild!

Here's a good one...a bedroom tax! If you have empty bedrooms the government will charge you for them. But if you turn a bedroom into a mosque you don't have to pay! Outrageous i know, it's just a thought i had, it'll never happen!

Quote Dilly "A going out at night tax, to pay the electric bill for lamposts."

To further that one Dilly, a machine on the base of each lamp post that you have to pedal like hell for five minutes , to generate enough leccy to get you from lamp post to lamp post, hence eliminating the need for WBC to light any of them!

SilentReader . 'A fart tax' . Yes I see this helping the above in some way .Maybe some sort of offsettting. grin

MissMarjong we will enlist Silentreaders ideas plus offsetting here too |I think. grin
