    Default Stop a tax on fire crews

    My local radio station keeps going on about this

    But what is it ? FI-R35? Pole Tax?
    If you find this post offensive, please insert "Chan" before and "tho" after, then it should be OK.

    Poll tax, I would guess, which partly pays for the fire service.

    a tax on fire crews are increasing, mr chanto, I also heard recently that the 999 service gives paramedics have a warning for households that have a history of abusing staff.
    Apparently they have to wait for the police to escort them in. All very well if it's the abusive person who is having the heart attack , but it could be a kid or his granny.

    Ah, I get it now - "attacks" not "a tax". very droll, chantho.

    Indeed, they are on the increase - they were discussing the property blacklist for ambulance staff on Jeremy Vine the other day. It's a sad state of affairs, really.

    Right-wing though it may be, machine-gunning the f--kers that stone and otherwise attack fire crews is the only language they'd understand, if they weren't dead from ... er ... having been machine-gunned to death.

    Don't you have a more "efficient" mens of extermination, or are you only an apprentice Dalek?
