Idle slackers and idle car parking
WHO do these people think they are? Idle slackers earning an extra buck, thousands in some cases, at the expense of the hard-up taxpayer.

No, not MPs, we are talking about benefit cheats.
At a time when people, councils and even the Government are getting crippled by debt, these greedy fraudsters still cannot resist pulling at the pocket.

Like the MP smoky gentleman's club, benefit cheating seems an acceptable culture in some murky areas of society.
Just look at 51-year-old Steven Foxall, caught stealing more than �2,000 over a six month period in housing and council tax benefit.

It must take a special kind of person to knowingly take so much money away from your child's education, health or even town redevelopment.
Is this really acceptable?
Well, maybe in the courts it is not so bad.
Foxall escaped with a puny 80 hours unpaid work - no pay-back, no prison sentence, no justice.
Is it any wonder these fraudsters continue to abuse the system?
THOUGHTLESS parking is grinding many residential streets in Weston to a halt.
These mad drivers are so desperate for a space they are leaving their cars in any space, no matter how small and what angle.
They do not care if they are parking illegally.
And why should they?
In Palmer Street, neither the police nor authority traffic officers will take responsibility and clamp down on the chaos.
These town centre roads need to be clear - businesses expect deliveries, commuters need to get to work and pedestrians want to feel safe.
Someone needs to pull their finger out before the livid residents, who witness more than their fair share of driver fights, take matters into their own hands.
