Loony Rooney

No, not the ugly mug who arguably just got us kicked out of the World Cup, but Josephine Rooney, the latest pensioner who has been getting all excited over the thought of being under the jackboot of Joan “the freak” Ferguson (only to be frustrated when a do gooder went and paid her council tax bill).

Despite mentioning her in my rant about council tax on Hands Off Our Future earlier this week, I’m well aware that her stated reasons for refusing to pay was that she objected to the local council allowing her street to fall to rack and ruin.

Only now it turns out that she has been very much part of the problem.

It must be so hard finding a cause celebre as a Daily Mail editor these days. My heart bleeds.
