curiously specific

Come with me to Southampton Road in the market town of Ringwood, and ponder as I have.

How exactly did they decide how much to charge an unauthorised motorist for parking their car?

You can almost hear the disagreement in the meeting and the dissatisfied harrumphing at the compromise figure agreed upon.

wheel clamping, release fee £73

I can see them getting to like half six, dinner going cold, and the facilitator says "so the proposal is £73, have we got consensus" and everyone twinkling then clapping because apparently something momentous has happened. Ah the memories!
