Yesterday I went to Manchester's famous Heaton Park , to *spend* money at the much advertised garden centre. At the park entrance, Jobsworth on the driveway asked me for £1.50 for parking. I explained that I was not visiting the park but going to shop at the garden centre. "Doesn't matter mate" came the terse reply. "No problem mate , let me turn the motor round and I'll shop elsewhere" I countered. "No problem mate" replied Jobsworth once again. B & Q's gain, ratepayers' loss. Pathetic isn't it.
