Taking steps to tackle tax joggers

It is not fair that joggers
and runners should be
able to run on our city

It is not fair that joggers and runners should be able to run on our city streets free of charge

•I'm referring to all those people who every day walk, jog, or run, either on our streets or in our public parks. And to those who every day use the paths and other walkways up and down the country to their hearts content. All do so without any fear of ever having to pay any charge whatsoever.



Just what kind of country are we living in that this sort of wanton widespread -- and let's face it, freebie -- activity is still tolerated?

It still astounds me that all those responsible for this ever increasing use and abuse of our public surfaces continue to be able to do so without any fear of being made to pay accordingly a suitable charge and/or tax.
