No, not the BBC (or the "BBC" as I call them), nor is it BT, ITV, JCB, TSB, MFI or even MI5.
It is none other than the NPC. (you probably guessed from the title eh?)
For those that don't know, the NCP is a company that has the nerve to call itself the National Car Park...something other.
They are dick heads.
Ask anyone you might what they think of the NCP and they will use words such as: off, bloody, rip and right, not in that order and probably a few choice verbs thrown in for good measure.
Their car parks vary in quality and price.
The prices range from extortionate to the obscene.
But that is not the reason I hate them.
I hate them because they have caused the closure of (along with a couple of other small businesses) my local comic book shop.
For the past 5 years since I moved away from the big city, I have relied on my local comic book shop to keep me entertained and thrilled with the weekly adventures of superheroes, secret agents and tales of horror and suspense.
From Avengers to Y: The last man (a tale of a world where only women survive except one man and his pet monkey) I have a collection of 1,000's of comics, graphic novels and the occasional figurine that clutter up my home.
It's not just me though - Mrs H is a proper full on X-Men nerd and has been since before I knew her. She's a right geek.
However, the NCP has recently given notice to the Comic shop to close down this month so they can make (the towns shittiest and most expensive) car park a bit bigger.
A business that has been at its current location for the best part of a decade, with a little cafe to boot now has to move to the other side of town. During this move the shop will not able to sell its wears and so 100's of local nerds and geeks are without their regular fix of capes and red tights.
Added to this, I have found out that the next issue of Justice league (issue #42) has a massive reveal in it and could change the way folks see one of comic books biggest names!
I won't spoil it here, but if things play out as they look - it could divide comic book readers for years to come.
The NCP are greedy good for nothings for their actions.... and their terrible car aprks across the nation.
Pot holes, lack of security, over priced tiny spots too small for clown car. That's your NCP car parks.
And now they are bullying small businesses to make a few extra pennies.
We wouldn't have kind of carry on if Batman were real.
*****END OF RANT*****
PS- if you want to read a graphic novel that isn't all about flying super people I highly recommend Y: The last man. It really is very good.
