Mrs. Monk's Would-be Diary, should have been written by Mrs. Monk, since she is the "Writer" in the family.
However, since she is a writer only in the conceptual sense, I have undertaken to fill these pages on her behalf.
If not by her, these pages will certainly be about her, and other important matters of the day

Leslie Monk, the long suffering.

Would-Be Diary

Parking Attendant On Speed


16 May 2006

National Car Parks are the company that provides you with a parking place at London's airports and elsewhere They will charge you £13 per day to park near Heathrow for example. This is a highly profitable company.

They wrote on their Web Site,    “As market leader, NCP offers you the insight gained from operating 31 successful on-street contracts.” Here, they are not promoting or selling car parking places to travellers with this phrase, but they are promoting the lucrative “market” in the issue of parking tickets to would-be “customers”.

Yes, you might also be surprised to learn that if you are issued with a parking ticket in the City of Westminster, you become a “customer” of  National Car Parks.  And if you complain about a corrupt parking attendant in the City of Westminster, you will get a reply from the NCP  “Customer Services” department.

The disgraced Tesco heir, Dame Shirley Porter, former leader of Westminster Council, fled the country refusing repay the money she stole from Westminster's poorest, but her spirit may well remain in Westminster.

The Customer Services Officer, Nigel Reid wrote to me, confirming as if true, what the currupt parking attendant (WS 4349) said to me before he issued the ticket. In fact he said nothing, not a single word. Not a tweet. WS 4349 subsequently lied, and of course there are witnesses.

NCP customer services have confirmed that they have considered the matter and have asserted with no equivocation that the parking attendant acted “correctly in this matter”

Note that the contact Links on the NCP website do not work and you are encouraged to use the premium line to speak with anyone at NCP including Mr Reid.

There is no phone number on the letter from Mr Reid, Customer Services at NCP. The very last thing he wants to do is to actually speak to his customers.
