It's been such a horrible time for the BBC that, fresh from their success with City of Edinburgh Council, FEDAGA have offered to step in.
They have got a bit carried away and already made a pilot show for broadcast to the
plebs public. And here it is:
Who said history doesn't repeat itself?
Just a few notes:
FEDAGA is Edinburgh's Allotment representative association.
FEDAGA came up with the proposal to "ramp up" the rents from £30 to £100 in steps of £10 per year.
Members of the Committee have advocated to me that there are no such things as allotments anymore: they should be called "Leisure Gardens"; Rents should go up by several hundred pounds; Peppercorn rents should be consigned to history, and bizarrely. "People don't appreciate what they've got unless they pay for it". There is truly a collective madness abroad. And it's one that suits the Council down to the ground!!!
