Parking wardens attack website

The UK parking business is big, it’s a growing industry, and like any industry they love giving each other awards. Nutsville had just been laughing at the results from the 2009 British Parking Awards where Westminster’s Councillor Chalkley’s parking department won absolutely nothing this year. Still perhaps Chalkley and Co managed to wangle another free meal out of the tax payer if he turned up. No doubt the Council officers running Chalkley’s parking department had no problem pocketing this years bonuses for their miserable efforts to deceive the public.

We then thought we’d swing by the Civil Enforcement Awards website to see if Westminster has any award winning traffic wardens.

When we went to http://www.civilenforcementawards.co.uk we were greeted with this stern warning.

I got the same as well, the incompetence of Westminster City Council’s Parking Department must be catching… Watch out BPA you’ll soon be as fooked up as Westminster!

I guess they awarded themselves a Virus (maybe the Verus Virus?) and decided to share it amongst the rest of the Internet

How long before they come after you for illegally “downloading” their software? :o )
