    Outside Bristol Zoo, there is a car park for 150 cars and 8 coaches. It was manned by a very pleasant attendant with a
    ticket machine charging cars £1 and coaches £5. This parking attendant worked there solid for all of 25 years.

    Then one day, he just didn't turn up for work.

    "Oh well", said Bristol Zoo Management "We'd better phone up the City Council and get them to send a new parking attendant..."

    "Err no", said the Council, "That car park is your responsibility"...

    "Err no", said Bristol Zoo Management, "The attendant was employed by the City Council......... wasn't he?"...

    "Err NO!"

    Sitting in his villa in Spain is a bloke who had been taking the car park fees, estimated at £400 per day at Bristol Zoo, for the last
    25 years...

    Assuming 7 days a week, this amounts to just over £3.6 million...

    Hold on!, so you mean to say that there was some guy with a ticket machine, in close to proximty to Bristol Zoo charging vehicles daily for 25years and Zoo management nor Bristol Council looked into where the revenue was going?

    Depending on owned the land the vehicles were being parked on, it must of been owned by either parties, so zoo management assumed that it was controlled monitored by the council and vice versa?

    If this is the case then genius, however, hard to believe it went on for 25years and that not a single person from either company or an auditor looked into it? :keule:

    I dont think you guys truly grasp how thick & what complete idiots are running these councils, this story I can seriously believe on my dealings with the councils, its beyond comprehension how slow at doing anything they really are & only actually get of these butts when the papers get involved.

    I think you are reading too much into this!

    The more you think about it the less likely it becomes - just read it and accept it for what it is - a good story that I kinda hope is true
