The Empire That Foggy Nearly Built
2 February 2017 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

I guess with the continued popularity at the time of Only Fools and Horses meant that writer Roy Clarke could bring out an element of Foggy that he dealt a bit in the past. Foggy the man with the business dreams, this time next year we really could be millionaires.

With people fighting over parking and then telling Foggy to stick one when he intervenes to play peacemaker he hits on an idea to introduce relief parking and get Clegg to cycle people to an industrial estate far away and then charge for parking.

It gets worse when Foggy persuades Clegg of all people to valet park the cars and we all know what a nervous driver he is.

A mildly amusing episode but really a daft concept as Foggy thinks he will get rich by charging people to park on private land that he does not own.
