Councils Ticket Their Own Cars and then Sue Themselves!
Posted by David Icke
'Crackpot councils are wasting thousands of pounds by suing THEMSELVES over parking tickets.

One farce saw Islington Council in North London issue a ticket, then take itself to an appeal hearing - where it asked for costs against itself. The costs process involves another four steps. Stunned adjudicator Gerald Styles said he could not make an order for costs because the council could not "act wholly unreasonably or vexatiously against itself".'
