Residents of an exclusive new apartment complex in Sussex awoke Monday to find a couple of burly guys slapping wheel clamps on their cars. Did they let things slide? Hell no they didn't. The complex had apparently done the worst job ever at getting its residents their parking passes and the fellows were there to put on the boot for those without tags - including the permitless tenants. The residents called friends and family who blocked the exit to the lot and a 5 hour standoff ensued.

After tense negotiations and probably fearing a possible row in the press, the complex relented and called off the clampers. We say hooray for civility and power to the people! Down with the dirty boot keepers. Now all they have to do is admit Marmite is a travesty of nature and we'll begin to think the Brits are sane again. [
