Calls for private camping to be made illegal. Clamping. We meant clamping.
Our Vince recently gave us an exhaustive guide to dealing with private parking fines and clampings. Now it looks as though the rest of the world have read his words, bought into his message and are revolting against the revolting scamsters who rake in untold amounts from private clamping.
The AA are calling for clamping on private land to be made illegal, due to the fact that there is no independent arbitration body for parkers to take any grievances to, allowing the clampers to act like cowboys in some lawless town in a Western. Which possibly makes the AA the vigilantes. Or something.
The AA said: “The lure of uncontrolled money-raking is so great that some companies offer DIY packs, with signs that can be printed off the internet." Spokesman Paul Watters added: “The public have absolutely no protection if a private parking firm acts unfairly - it is a civil matter and no-one is interested in helping.” Except Vince – he should have mentioned Vince there.
Next week, our Vince will be publishing a five-part guide on why grapes with seeds in them are an atrocity on par with the genocide in Darfur. Sharpen thy quills AA, sharpen thy quills…
