Your Home Is Not Your Own
For some weeks, prior to his major medical repairs from which I understand he is recovering well, North Snr has been tenacious in revealing the illegal fees councils permit their appointed bailiff companies to charge for recovery of council tax debt. Although his figures related to English companies, I'm sure Scottish companies are as guilty.
However, this is the thin edge of the wedge and is one of those cases in which compensation must be rewarded.
I consider this an attack upon these unsuspecting and innocent people.
At what point does this kind of attack become a perceived threat to life and be reasonably met with some form of armed resistance?
If they had used weapons to protect themselves against this invasion would they have been guilty of using undue force against those who refused to provide any form of identity?
Call Me Dave insists we should be able to protect ourselves from those who attempt or succeed upon entering our homes illegally. The treatment meted out to the labrador surely deserves at least an apology.
Thankfully no such action concerning bailiffs has yet been reported in Scotland. Let that remain so.
