Saw this recently, sums up the council


Recommended Posts

This is history now, but it was probably the start of the offloading of public assets to largely unaccountable bodies. Whilst I don't fundamentally object to this, as it can often mean they are a given new lease of life by funding streams otherwise not available, I do object to the year on year rise of council tax when the services provided by the Council is ever more diminishing and what is provided is to such a poor standard it's simply a waste of limited money. I don't know what the answer is - whilst common sense says go smaller, get back to basics and do them well, the lust for power is driving councils to become bigger by merging as well as deferring to autonomous bodies such as the Marches LEP.
