The CAB are helpful and may add legitimacy to a complaint, but it
doesn't hurt to DIY a bit, especially now that our Glorious Leader has
cut their funding.
Yes, indeed. The temptation is to contact the Sheriff Court directly
and inform them that the Council provided them with false information.
While I of course would provide proper evidence of that. But I have to
wait for them to make the usual "mistake" again first, and I am trying
to be proactive (which is probably the reason the Cancer^W Council hate

Many years ago I was sufficiently hot under the collar about some piece
of Council high-handedness to ask at a kind of public counter in the
Sheriff Court building what I could do about it.

brief illegal parking.
Doesn't mean that I want to make it easier for someone to go on a
fishing expedition though. God knows how many little-known laws are on
the books, or how the known ones may be reinterpreted.
