Satellite spies

The British government has instructed council- tax inspectors to use satellite photography to find out if people have added extensions or developments to their properties, thereby adding value which should be taxed at a higher rate.

How low will they go......or high, as the case may be.

Here in NZ, they use aircraft to spot pools with no permits!

BTW, They were up flying about, burning our money looking for the dreaded weed, last week.

Good escuse to plant lots of trees - or get some of those military camo nets to cover your pool.
