Function Creep

In a spectacularly over the top use of the RIP Act, Poole Council have spent taxpayers' money setting up a covert operation to make sure a family lived where they claimed.

Oh yes.

Not a family of terrorists. Dear me no. That would probably have been assessed as infringing their human rights or some such bollocks. No, much more dangerous than terrorists: a family, who committed the heinous crime of wanting to get their three year old child into a local school.

Suspecting that they lived outside the catchment area for the school, but thinking they would pretend to be living somewhere else, the local council paid one of their own staff to set up a monitoring operation. A 'round the clock' monitoring operation. At taxpayers' expense. To see if a family were entitled to send their child to a local school.

Sorry for repeating myself there. I just wanted to make it quite clear. There was a 'round the clock' monitoring operation. At taxpayers' expense. To see if a family were entitled to send their child to a local school. For fuck's sake.

You don't think the council could just have a look at their own fucking documents and see how long this family had lived at the address, do you? See if they've been paying Council Tax there for longer than the kid had been alive? Because if they have, then it's either legit or it's a fucking amazing bit of lying. Similarly, if they haven't, then see who is supposed to be paying the Council Tax and pop in to speak to them.

How much time can be wasted on something as trivial as this? And how much money?

More than that, how much further can these cunts go and still get away with it?

I am the Revolution and I'd like my fucking country back.

Maybe if councils didn't waste money on this crap and spent on providing decent schools for everyone then parents wouldn't find it necessary to fraudulently get their child into a school out of their area.

Makes a change from parents not giving a shit about their kids though
