Police and the city council are considering whether a fleet of vehicles, including a military crane, parked in Wolvercote are antisocial.Oh, FFS. Here we go again. And how can a vehicle be 'antisocial'?
They have written to residents listing seven actions they are taking to try to resolve the long-running feud over the vehicles in Upper Wolvercote.In other words, they are trying to placate a bunch of people who’ve fallen out with one of their neighbours.
Wiser heads might point out that that cannot end well, but then, it seems they don’t have enough real work to do, so why not?
They all belong to St Peter’s Road resident Nicholas Kravchenko, but locals claim they are antisocial as they are rarely used and many are broken beyond repair.Are any of them illegal? Unsafe? No? So STFU!
Oxford City Council and local bobbies vowed to examine different laws and powers to find a way to bring the dispute to an end.In other words, ‘there must be something in here that we can do him for if we look hard enough!’.
Last night residents said peace could only be restored if the vehicles were removed.What’s to stop him simply getting some more?
Last night, Mr Kravchenko, who drives the crane for his pleasure and displays it at shows and charity events, said the council and police had not contacted him about the dispute and defended his right to park the vehicles in the street.You know what? I’m with him.
Yes, I realise these things are often six-of-one-half-a-dozen-of-the-other, amnd it certainly does seem as if he’s winding them up deliberately, but god, wouldn’t you?
I mean, the council could nip the complaint of excess parking spaces taken up simply by imposing a local parking zone and ramping up the price for additional spaces exponentially, but I doubt that would satisfy the complainers, who seem hell-bent of finding some way for the council to ensure Mr Kravchenko conforms to their idea of what someone should own and do and think.
The council’s Neighbourhood Action Officer Monica Walton and North Oxford sergeant Lis Knight wrote: “I would like to assure you that Oxford City Council and the police are doing everything within their power to bring this case to a satisfactory conclusion and to restore the community atmosphere to this part of Wolvercote.”The ‘community atmosphere’ shouldn’t even be within your purview, you tax-sucking parasites.
