Plan to charge 50p for toilets is sheer lunacy
Sir, I see that the Highland Council in its wisdom is proposing to introduce a charge of 50p for the use of public toilets.
I think this should be at least £1, thus imprisoning many pensioners in their homes where they can be properly supervised by ‘granny’ state and hastening the death knell of high street shopping by pushing the remaining population towards out of town shopping malls where the facilities will still be free.
In addition, this will make me a millionaire from sales of my ‘ wee collection knickers’ (available in all tartans), the production facility for which will be run on Coronation Street lines and situated in Acharacle, thus providing work for all those residents currently unemployed and in the process contributing substantially to a reduction in the SNP government’s £14.9 billion budget deficit.
In politics, of course, this is called ‘the law of unintended consequences’. For the rest of us, it is just confirmation that the bampots are still in charge of the asylum.
