So, in my last post, I relayed the tale of scum-bags occupying disabled parking spaces illegally and the wave of apathy on all sides which accompanied it.
As you’ll recall I vowed to follow up with the council whom the police assured me were indeed responsible for issuing infringement notices in Centro car park.
Well guess what?
That’s right, the council deny any responsibility whatsoever, claim it’s private property and the owners (Centro) are entitled to do whatever they want there.
Moreover he informs me that it’s NOT illegal to abuse disabled parking as, you guessed it, it’s occurring on private property.
Bottom line, council too, wash their hands and don’t want to know about parking for the disabled.
So, tenacious little bugger that I am, armed with this new information I rang back Centro Lavington.
“Can I speak with the centre manager please” I asked.
“No” came the abrupt reply.
No “oh sorry he/ she isn’t available at the moment”.
No “can I take a message”.
Just “No” and then-get this- HANGS UP!!!
Obviously I rang back and demanded to speak with the centre manager and was fobbed off with “well their not here at the moment”.
I left my name and contact details, I doubt they were even written down much less passed on.
My next avenue, will be to knock on the doors of the mainstream media to see if I can spread the sullied name of Centro far and wide.
Beyond that, petitioning our state and federal members, given their political allegiance though, I doubt they’d stand up for anything other than false-hood, injustice and the un-Ausralian way.
My prediction, they’ll take Centro’s side, right down to the wire.
I can’t think of a corporate obscenity which deserves to go belly-up more, can you?
