Mrs. Monk's Would-be Diary, should have been written by Mrs. Monk, since she is the "Writer" in the family.
However, since she is a writer only in the conceptual sense, I have undertaken to fill these pages on her behalf.
If not by her, these pages will certainly be about her, and other important matters of the day

Leslie Monk, the long suffering.




Mrs Monk’s

Would-Be Diary

21 Feb 2007 Esther’s List

So why is it that, like Esther Rantzan, we cannot avoid Parking Tickets in the City of Westminster. I go out of my way to do things properly, so when I do get a ticket, it can only be in the City of Westminster, where Parking attendants are out of control.

Here are the stories of these parking tickets.

No 1 or Royal Parking Kerfuffle

This story shows you how the City of Westminster can dream up Parking restrictions Signs where they do not exist. You would think that the  Parking Appeal Adjudicators would oblige the City Of Westminster to provide evidence of these signs but they have not. I asked the adjudicators, and asked them again, for this evidence until they stopped answering my mail.

They City of Westminster did not even attempt to answer mail. READ THE FULL STORY APPEAL MORE AND MORE ANDYETMORE EXISTENTIAL PARKING

No 2 or Parking Attendant on Speed

This parking attendant invented a story that was a tissue of lies. Fortunately, what actually happened was witnessed by two independent witnesses who supported me. I asked the City of Westminster to have the Parking Attendant arrested, since this was not a matter of parking , but a matter of criminality. The parking ticket was in due course dropped, supposedly because they did not reply to my letter in a “timely fashion” In fact they replied more promptly than Parking Ticket No 1, where they did not reply at all. Perhaps they were avoiding the charge of corruption.. READ THE FULL STORY UPDATE MORE

No 3 or Petulant Parking

Here I am faced with more lies, but on this occasion. No witnesses. A rejection by City Of Westminster,. I have to fight an appeal and I know from Parking Ticket No 1 that an Appeal is futile since evidence is irrelevant READ THE FULL STORY UPDATE

Esther Rantzen Beats The Rap

2 Feb 2007

Esther Rantzen was cross since she was given a parking ticket because she didn’t have enough change to “pay and display”.

She was let off by the Head of Westminster Council Parking Services who found enough time to appear on television to let her off publicly and show everyone how reasonable he is.

Meanwhile he is ignoring my correspondence and dumping on everyone else.

But has it now been established that if you don’t have enough change you needn’t buy a Pay and Display ticket?
