Re: Hmmmm

Having worked briefly for a town council (6 months) it seemed to me this is all the fault of Central Government, over the years they have relentlessly cut local government funding forcing Councils to look every which way to keep themselves running, which of course leads to excessive parking regulation and high business rates, the place i was working for were trying to perform miracles with very limited funding, and even then most of them are in the red by at least a million pounds or often more.

I was reading an article about the EU referendum recently where Hastings council were saying they would not have open libraries and museums if it were not for EU grants, all the time we've got skinflint Osbourne controlling the purse strings I can't see that changing.
