The Ballad of Ty Glas Tax Office

My thanks to the loyal reader who posted this comment on the article about the closure of Ty Glas:

Saddened to learn was I, probably like so many others, of the proposed demise of the Ty Glas Open Prison.
Alas, no more will the sympathetic and supportive management 'encourage' staff to attend work when the Police are advising nothing but emergency travel be undertaken given the predicted blizzards.
No more will staff have to exit past the post room (other exits are available) when suspicious parcels are therein.
The delightful female car park 'Stasi' operator will no longer be able to waste time staring out of the window to report those travelling the wrong way around or parking badle (at least she was consistent).
No more will the kitchen cleaning rosters have to be drwan up and adhered to or be punished. (must wonder how long before a toilet cleaning roster was introduced?)
No more will anyone threaten disciplinary action for writing on a disused whiteboard (suitable pen of course).
No more will staff have to sit at desks in overcoats, hats and scarves in the winter because their office is so fecking cold! (that's the problem when a building contract ends up with staff in a room formally occupied by main frame systems and a very high ceiling)
And don't mention the fire brigade threatening to close the building down because the fire doors couldnt stop a pike in a poke and also blew ajar during high winds.
Yes, I am sure the staff will miss this edifice when they transfer.
I for one am prepared to make a contribution to a charity for the absolute pleasure of pressing the red button - (preferably with a few of the Muppets still in there) - a joke of course, but I am prepared to pay for the joy of pressing that red button and watching the House of Horrors drop...

Lovely place to work, my arse!

Tax does have to be taxing.

  1. Whither goest they sheeple?

    Dost thy lack of posting indicate feare or indifference?

    Waken they flock up or hast Lean got the better of ye all at last?

    For those few that remember "The Diary of Samuel Pepys" and the cartoons of "Pete" it must be a darke place...
