Whoever said ‘Speak softly and carry a big stick’ ?
The truth is nobody knows
But the American president Teddy Roosevelt made it famous
Teddy almost built a mythology around the saying by claiming that
its origins lay in a West African proverb
In reality it was the perfect evocation of American foreign policy
That is, negotiate with a bloody big military machine to back you up
So when the G.-man decided to take on Canterbury County Council
and the council asked the age-old question…..
‘Yeah, you and whose army?’
The Groover looked them straight in the eye and quietly said…..
‘No army, mate, I am going to use G.-force’
Well they laughed, but he who laughs last laughs loudest !
And whose laughing now ? ! ! ! ! !
The Groover, lui-meme
Let me explain………………………………..
I have just been given an early christmas present
It arrived this morning in the post
The Government appointed solicitor who was to judge the council’s
case against me has written to say the council have dropped their
£50 parking fine cancelled
Nothing to pay
VERY, VERY, WRONG
Not the G.-man that’s wrong but the council
The council clearly thought they would lose the case so they
The council wanted to avoid setting a legal precedent
However in withdrawing they have set a moral precedent
They were wrong, they were harvesting cash from innocent
And now they are going to PAY
They are going to have to pay back the 1000s, perhaps tens of
1000s of motorists who have been fleeced by this car park ruse
How do I know ? I hear you ask
Because the Whitstable Times are going to run this story on their
front page and urge everyone to demand their fines back from the
They have my file
They have the council’s 40…..
Yes, 40 page case against me
They still LOST
So the mouse roared
The man-in-the-street doesn’t need to feel powerless in the face
of institutional misappropriation of one’s personal funds
And with that I wish you all ‘jingle bells’
Love, kisses etc
p.s. I almost forgot…..and goodwill to all men (except county councils this year)
