(not satire – it’s the Tories!)

Some Tory councils are now charging children to play.

Conservative-controlled Wandsworth council bulldozed a public playground in Battersea Park, spent £250,000 on building a new one and then handed it over to a private company which is going to charge parents £20 for each child to use.

Here’s the full story from the London Evening Standard:

The council playground in London that costs £20 a time


Is there anything the Tories won’t sell? Their own grandmothers? Oh hang on, no – they’ve already done that.
