I was looking for a specialist engineering company in Hampshire when I came across a local directory. It turns out that its published by Hampshire Council and they are demanding £180 for it. A company looking for a one off specialist supplier would be never pay this and I cannot believe that Hampshire coucil make serious money from it. It can only be of commercial value to junk mail companies.

Presumably the information for compiling this directory has come free of charge from the business rate payers (who are already being fleeced by local taxes). When I looked further, I discovered that Hampshire Council are running their own internet shop

Local Councils seem to have completely abandoned a pretence to public service. They just want to make money. What is the stupid Tory leadership doing. Saving the planet whilst the UK burns presumably.

Speaking of rip offs, was going to put add in local rag re handyman/dogsbody sort of thing, turns out was far too expensive, £59+ vat for 3 liner in trades section. Further investigation found that the majority of adds in that part of the rag was for prostitutes who probably make that in much less than an hour, whereas it would be a full days work for what I was proposing. It seems most buisnesses and government services charge according to the highest common denominator re wages. eg, plumbers charging £60ph, hairdressers charging (my misses) £50ph, dentists charge around £200ph. Even taking into account overheads their charges are way out of line with what real people earn, I suspect many of these service type costs are underrepresented in the CPI figures, cause for sure they have now all outstripped my ability to pay.
