The Budget Meeting

Avid readers may be waiting for reports from last night farce full Council meeting where the Budget was debated. This is a yearly event where so much rubbish is said by the leading group about why it has to make us all pay more for services that don't exist.

Unlike previous Council meetings in the past few months there were notable differences. This one wasn't cut short and guillotined. Full reports of the detail and the information revealed by the Question and Answer session will follow shortly, so for now we'll just give you a taster.
  • The Mayor wasn't there (bad neck after looking upward to his political master so we heard)
  • The ruling Labour group appear to have filibustered the event to close down debate.
  • The excitable Cllr Thorpe got excited.
  • The Dynamic Duo were static.
  • We're all going to get red top bins for organic waste which take about six weeks to fill.
  • We lost the will to live.
More detail to follow shortly. We did hear an amusing bit of scurrilous gossip last night that suggests the Leader of the Council may have once preferred wearing blue rosettes to red one when out on the stump.

We're all going to get red top bins for organic waste which take about six weeks to fill.

The bins will be stood on the pavement with all the other bins - one will have to walk in the road - the smell will be incredible and the air full of fungus spores being blown about and into our lungs.

Is the Council determined to make every part of this Borough resemble a favella?

Chris Roberts' Tory days are far from secret. Ask him about his time in Lytham St. Anne's.

Perhaps a coalition is in order?
