Check out this post from Burning Our Money, then ask yourselves - Is this how I want my money, as a taxpayer, spent? Do note the use of the word 'Regulatory' in the title of the bureaucrats involved - because that is what local authorities have become, yet another means of regulating how we should behave. Why else would local authorities have been given the means to use the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act (RIPA) other than to spy on us? And, remember, who pays for this 'august' quango, called Local Authority Coordinators of Regulatory Services (Lacors), why - you do of course!
