NEW YORK – LONDON – BRUSSELS – HARTCLIFFE

There was a very LOW KEY decision from the Vicar last month to continue spending £351k a year to keep open his Bristol City Council office in Brussels and to provide a nice little slush fund for his aimless mayoral trips abroad.

This will no doubt come as especially good news for residents of HARTCLIFFE, SOUTHMEAD, LAWRENCE WESTON and FISHPONDS. As, following his destructive Tory cuts budget that closed all neighbourhood Customer Service Points, the Reverend can now proudly boast that his council has an office open for business in Brussels but not in, er, Hartcliffe!

How convenient for paying the rent …

    O DEAR DEAR ME B.C.C WHAT CAN I SAY.2015-2016 6 MONTHS TO WORK OUT MY RENT AND 10 MONTHS TO PAY WHAT I OWED BECAUSE IT TOOK B.C.C. THAT LONG TO WORK IT OUT, BECAUSE THE RENT DEPARTMENT DO NOT SPEAK TO BENEFITS SECTION. ONLY BY EMAIL. THIS OF COURSE INCLUDES COUNCIL TAX. ON ANOTHER OCCASION I WAS ACCUSED OF HAVING AN UNTIDY GARDEN, WITH STINGING NETTLES CAUSING A PROBLEM…. WRONG HOUSE, IT TOOK 5 EMAILS/LETTERS NO RESPONSE FINALLY I GOT TO SPEAK TO A LADY (I THINK) WHO WAS HAVING NONE OF IT. HER WORDS “DO YOU THINK I AM STUPID” ” DO YOU THINK I DO NOT KNOW WHAT I AM DOING” I HAVE BEEN VERY HIGHLY TRAINED” ETC ETC ETC. ALLTHIS CONVERSATION TOOK PLACE ON MOBILES IN MY STREET, WITH THE PUMPED UP NEVER WRONG B.C.C AGENT. I WAVED TO HER FROM 10 HOUSES AWAY. YOU SHOULD HAVE HEARD THE BACK PEDDLING, BUCK PASSING, AND BULL XXXX THAT CAME OUT. I SIMPLY SAID GO AWAY GET A SMALLER HORSE, TAKE YOUR HEAD OUT OF THE CLOUDS, AND GROW UP, AND ADMIT WHEN YOU ARE WRONG. I KNOW ITS NOT IN THE B.C.C. TRAINING MANUAL TO SAY SORRY. BUT ITS ABOUT TIME THEY GREW A PAIR.THIS YEAR 5 MONTHS TO SORTOUT RENT/COUNCIL TAX THEY COULD NOT GIVE ME A FIGURE TO PAY FOR EITHER TAX OR RENT, BUT THEY COULD SEND NUMERIOUS THREATING LETTERS ETC BY THE SCORE. I HAD A REMINDER THAT MY BLUE BADGE RAN OUT JAN-2017 I APPLIED (EVEN THOUGH THIS IS MY 4th BADGE) AND RECEIVED A LETTER TELLING ME TO GO TO A SERVICE POINT TAKE ALL THE RELEVANT DETAILS, AND THEY WILL SORT IT… NO NO NO SAID THE AGENT AT SYMES AVENUE. “IT MUST BE DONE BY POST” NO NO NO THE BLUE BADGE DEPARTMENT SAID YOU MUST GO TO YOUR SERVICE CENTER. I COULD CARRY ON LIKE THIS BECAUSE IT HAPPENED 3 TIMES. BUT AT THE RISK OF SOUNDING LIKE B.C.C I WILL LEAVE IT THERE.EVENTUALLY I MANAGED TO SPEAK TO A HUMAN IN THE BLUE BADGE DEPT. HONESTLY I REALLY DID, BUT IT TOOK 5 DAYS AND 15 PHONE CALLS. I WAS THEN TOLD TO GO TO TEMPLE MEADS. ME ALONG WITH JUST ABOUT EVERYBODY IN HARTCLIFFE WERE AMAZED AT THE SPEED THEY DID THEIR ALMOST OVERNIGHT FLIT B.C.C./SPEED NO! IT JUST DOES NOT GO TOGETHER. NOW LOOK ON THE BRIGHT SIDE I HAVE MY NEW SHINY BLUE BADGE. WHICH IS DATED WRONGLY. AND THEY HAVE TAKEN 3 MONTHS OFF THE ALOTTED 3 YEAR TERM.. EVEN THOUGH I ASKED THE QUESTION OF ONE OF THERE AGENTS. ADVICE: DO NOT ASK B.C.C – GOOGLE IT AT LEAST YOU WILL GET AN ANSWER QUICKLY,ACCURATE,TRUTHFULL, AND FACTUAL. ITS A SORRY STATE OF AFFAIRS WHEN ALL B.C.C ARE CONCERNED WITH IS CYCLE PATHS, VELODROMES, GREEN CITY AND OTHER BXXX SXXX IDEAS LEFT OVER FROM THE RED TROUSERED ONE. KIND REGARDS TONY
