This time about parking tickets and appeals.
At one point he says that " Motorists are subjected to a totalitarian society". I am sure we can all find the similarities between, for example, Chairman Mao's China or Stalin's USSR and the current plight of motorists and parking tickets.
On another interview on parking tickets he says it is "such an unpleasant thing to get a ticket". Well, Mr Rayner, I have had my fair share of parking tickets and can say they pale into insignificance to the unpleasantness of having one's well-being threatened by inattentive or bullying motorists. Or the unpleasantness felt when one knows that they can pretty much get away with anything up to killing a cyclist if they claim they simply "didn't see them".
Of course, if Mr Rayner finds tickets so unpleasant, maybe he could use alternative transport modes instead - I have never had a parking ticket with my bicycle for instance.
Or maybe parking tickets are simply a bit annoying as opposed to proof of a totalitarian state, and that Mr Rayner's hyperbole machine is going full tilt.
