good about time, these companies are a menace to all drivers, about time Cameron has done something about it.

The Scots did this TEN years ago-liking it to theft and extortion.

Oh well! we get there

Surprized it's taken so long.

What will these outfits get up to when their lucrative clamping business comes to an end?

go back to being bouncers.

But someone has already raised the opposite side of the coin.

What do you do if you own a private bit of land and the local commuters keep parking there all day?

It's not always possible to to fence or gate such plots.

those cars will have tyres, perhaps letting of a bit of air as was did in the days before clampers.

morddwyd raises a very good point. Instead of policing the cowboys, we get a banket ban.
We had a major problem with shoppers parking in our company car park until we invested in a clamp. We don't charge to unclamp, we just inconvenience them and slowly but surely the message got around. From using it several times a day it got to be once every few months. What are we going to do when the new legislation comes into force. Whilst sunnystaines suggestion sounds fun, I suspect its illegal. Are we going to have to install a gate or barrier and have all of the inconvenience it will bring.

The industry had many years to sort out the cowboy menace that had infiltrated their domain...they did not, so boo hoo. They had plenty of chances to clean up their act...and plenty of warning. Tough.
