I have been advised by my local council (when complaining about one of their services) that they have no penalty clauses in their contracts because penalty clauses are illegal.


Ok, so strictly speaking they can't use the WORD penalty in a contract.

But I remind you of the words HHJ Maloney when hearing a case in Cambridge County Court recently.

"If it walks like a penalty, swims like a penalty and quacks like a penalty, then it's a penalty"

And if you want to see an extreme example of this, click on the link below. If that ain't a penalty, I don't know what is.

Fair enough - I stand corrected

With that logic, would it not make parking fines ("bribes") illegal then?

No, because there's no contract.
