So it goes on, as I mentioned in another post public officials who have control of public monies seem to lose any sense or constraint.
The next time I hear a government or local politician claiming job losses or service cuts because of lack of resources, well I will simple not believe them.
The council involved has justified job losses by the need to save money, yes so they could waste it. I wonder will any one resign or be sacked, excuse me while I stop laughing, probably already working out how to spend their bonus, or in the unlikely event of someone being fired, a golden goodbye.
A local councillor said he realised most people did not want it, then why was it allowed to get this far.
The people involved must have been incompetent to allow costs to spiral.
Steve Charmley, the council’s cabinet member responsible for Quantum Leap is said to be disappointed by the audit report, I bet he is now, the public know the facts.
