You pay business rate then pay 50 to have your bin emptied.......oh dear......imagine paying council tax and paying more to have bins emptied........what do you get from the council by way of services for paying business rate?

Is this true? You didn't have to listen...did you.

...they would be on another road holding some one else up...you see it's not always about The Funtoy, he's not Balotelli...too early for him.

Ah the greats: Bruce Forsyth, George Gorgeous Galloway, Milton Keynes...

Dearest The Funtoy,

<<in a right wing capitalist society everything should be run for profit and privately run, no nanny state>>

If UKeydonkeyland were a right wing capitalist economy it would be wouldn't it, lol.

I had no choice in my education...I am simply pointing out that in a right wing capitalist society everything should be run for profit and privately run, no nanny state at all!

The irony is that if you set off 10 minutes earlier the bin men won't be on that section of road to hold you up so you'll arrive 10 minutes early. Then next week you'll say "I was 10 minutes early last week so I could have an extra 10 minutes in bed/eating breakfast/stroking the cat/walking the dog" and you'll be 10 minutes late. The nature of rush hour is that there are certain places that it is impossible to arrive at for a specific time; you can only choose whether to be early or later depending when you set off.

If you weren't privately educated then you're using the results of a council funded service every time you read and write.
I couldn't possibly comment on the quality of the education you received (except that your science teachers were clearly rubbish).

Silly Oliver...I refer you to Beloved Gordon's reply...

The fount has modelled many...Bruce, George...Milton H Erickson...not the Friedman...

Does this mean there's no need to improve any traffic flows or improve any roads because all we need do is set off earlier?

set off 10 minutes earlier than you clod

Are you modelling Milton Friedman?

The paradox that is The Funtoy: ban added sugar, don't use council refuse collection - too socialist.

Silly-billy....I have to walk on pavements or drive on roads...I have no choice...I would like to have the choice of a public or a private road...a public or a private pavement...I was not privately educated...that is an irrelevant comment.

Too socialist...

Ian says:
You don't walk on pavements? Or drive on roads - especially when it's icy and they're been gritted? Or cross them at a pedestrian crossing? You sweep the street you live in yourself? You don't employ people who can read because they were educated in a council funded school (I'm assuming you were privately educated?)?

How do you find time to run a business?

Why doesn't The Funtoy use council services?

In reply to an earlier post on 20 Feb 2013 15:34:08 GMT
Are you feeling poorly today dear?

Whilst driving? Yeah, righto.

Use...in what sense...I would happily do away with them and use a high quality torch.

You don't use street lights?

In reply to an earlier post on 20 Feb 2013 14:10:51 GMT
The fount does not use council services.

Ian says:
Why? Is there some reason you don't place your domestic rubbish in the bin at home which you are paying for through your council tax? (I have heard of some small businesses doing the opposite to reduce their costs)

In reply to an earlier post on 20 Feb 2013 10:56:52 GMT
The Fount takes his rubbish to his shop and places it in his Biffa bin which costs about 50 per month.

That's cool, my job doesn't contribute to the nation anyway. Either of them.
