Occupy London protesters shocked by council tax bill - average tent 'in band B'

Bloody hell, never seen one published so quickly
Won't bother to vote then.
But liked it.
I was planning to write loads more shit about the City of London issuing council tax bills to those camped outside St Pauls.
A spokesman for the City of London Corporation (or whoever issues council tax bills within the City boundaries) said something like: "We've decided that 2-man tents fall into band A, 3-4 man tents are band B and anything bigger is band C. If you have loads of guy ropes stretching all over the place then we might declare it band D".
Whilst many might think it harsh to apply council tax to tents, some of the roomier ones actually have more living space than many central London flats.
In return for an average bill of £1,647 per year, tent-residents can expect their bins to be collected fortnightly and a crack police force which will turn up to crack their skulls if the make too much noise.
And loads of other such stuff. Perhaps even stuff about unpaid interns at some banks joining the camp because it's the best value accom in the capital.
Probably should have thought about that before you posted it as a one-liner really.
