In London to pick up an award for her 'contribution' to international diplomacy, Hillary Clinton got a parking ticket. Apparently she thinks she's too big of a deal to have to pay for parking.
"The former U.S. secretary of state was parked for nearly 45 minutes without paying. I'm sure she will understand that we have to be fair to everyone, regardless of their status on the world stage, Councilor Daniel Astaire, Westminster City Council Cabinet member for business, told the Mail."Despite our traffic marshal being questioned by the secret service for just doing his job, he was in the right," he added.The ticket came with an £80 ($128) fine but could be reduced to £40 ($64) if it's paid within two weeks.A Clinton representative wasn't immediately available to comment.The former First Lady had been attending an award ceremony at Chatham House to pick up a prize related to her contributions to international diplomacy.
A parking ticket is not a big deal, worthy of a bash. Perhaps however, the lack of planning that should go along with paying to park at an event in London is an issue. It's a simple thing to bring along some money or a credit card to pay to park. Otherwise perhaps, she just feels it is beneath her to have to pay. Constables in London, feel otherwise.
