Out of Pocket

It's only a small shorfall: Kent is facing a staggering shortfall in funding for vital public services over the next ten years.

Consultants commissioned by Kent County Council estimate that based on the current levels of goverment grants and inflation rates, the authority faces a cumulative £1.2billion shortfall on what it needs to provide "essential services.

I wonder how much those consultants cost KCC (us)?
Can't anyone at KCC do sums?

Not since Lunatic Asylums were dissolved in the 70's... No.

Somebody should instigate an enquiry, if only to find out exactly what does happen to all the revenues we pay. Our roads are the worst in britain, we are run by moronic Councils. It shouldn't be allowed to happen.
It does though.
