Thank you Yorkie. :D

But the whole point of this sorry episode, is that the HC lads at Watford have been poorly led.

Yes stations shouldn't hold drivers to ransom, but it's within the law.

In the same way as I can't pick up off the street, because it's outside of the law.

The only difference at Watford is that the drivers where led up the hill by the T&G, promised the earth, and have ended up out of pocket.

When all this could have been settled quickly, and the punters could have paid any permit price via the meter.

But as I said, that doesn't make such a front-page story in CTN. :?

Read next months copy of the CTN then. The PH HAVE been moved away from public view round the other end of the station. Tell you what ring Watford's licensing officer up on Monday morning and he'll fill you in on whats going on. It's him who had the PH cleared off the station forcourt.

The T&G didn't promise anybody anything Sussex, they took up the fight and won!! 15 Watford drivers were in the T&G, the T&G represented all of the drivers on that day 2 weeks ago, I was there remember????

Well me must disagree on the approach of the T&G then, but I doubt they will have 'we did nothing at Watford' in CTN, if it goes right.

But if it goes wrong, then it wont get mentioned.

your not suggesting a link are you? :lol:

do you think the oft will want to increase the number of gay weddings because of the time difference?

and will the T&G state there is no unmet demand? :roll:
