    Default Free parking for foreigners as wardens are told 'not to bother'

    Locals branded the policy a “joke” and “discrimination” after town hall chiefs said it was a waste of money.


    Retailer Nick Lawrence alerted Sevenoaks Council in Kent to a VW with Polish plates left on double yellow lines for a month and causing problems for deliveries. He said: “A customer got a ticket after a few minutes. It’s discrimination.” Shopper Steve Farmer said: “It’s a total joke that if you have a foreign car you can park where you like.”


    A Sevenoaks Council spokesman said: “It is impossible to enforce penalty charge notices issued against the owners of these vehicles.”


    The DVLA said there would be “no point” in councils contacting them – as no details were held about foreign-registered cars.

    I bet you could do the same if you parked illegally in Poland.

    Why do people get so wound up when someone gets away with something they didn't? They should just say something like 'lucky bastard!' with a smile on their faces because someone had a bit of good fortune. That's the sort of attidue that gets everyone screwed over rather than some of us getting a bit of leniency, it does no good whatsoever.

    Fucking bell ends.
