Spendthrift Kirklees Council have been out shopping and bought themselves a hotel!
Is this the same Kirklees Council who for a decade have been cutting essential public services (rights of way maintenance amongst them) with the justification that they have …er..no money? 60 pence less per pound is the mantra we’ve all learnt by rote.
It seems they’ve looked down the back of the corporate sofa and found all those 60p’s !
The story is featured in what passes for the local newspaper here but of course the Council have not revealed the cost to the public of this rather lavish purchase. Obviously I think we should be told.
In other news Councillor Shabir Pandor our leader from Batley has issued a statement on the current coronavirus crisis. I’m sure blog readers will be reassured by Councillor Pandor’s assertion that “our strength is in our togetherness” and his timely advice on hand washing.
