born to moan

Mad money, and politics and history and international law, and climate change, and Brexit, and Chinese imports, and Diane Abbott, and Donald Trump, and the General Election, and the NHS.

The whole point of this thread was when we were winning at the beginning of the season .. everybody had nothing to moan about ., which meant must supporters were in happy .. being a town supporter with nothing to moan about is a very unusual state., 

so this thread was created to keep a happy atmosphere by giving us other things to moan about.

Thats part of the problem with Council's. If they are looking at having a surplus at the end of the financial year, they spend/waste money on other things to ensure their funding from central government does not drop for the following year.

So you think it's a good idea for the council to have even less money?ffs

Dont think that's an issue where you live!

Some of the poorest parts of the country are in the south.. I think all people should care how the government spends our money .. and the government needs to do a better job with it before it keeps asking for more !!!

No ... but don’t waste from one part of the budget when other parts are short

How about allowing any surplus to be rolled over into the following year without penalty . How about better funding distribution and management

Agreed.

The key (talking simply here, obviously it's a complex issue) is the nirvana of a holistic view across government of where money is, and where it needs to be best spent. Savings against budgets should be encouraged so that the money saved can be spent elsewhere (whether that's by a different council department, or a totally different government department/agency entirely).

It's a very tough model to break - years, if not decades of ingrained behaviour and processes that are set up precisely to support the existing way of working.

Clueless

You clearly have no understanding of supply and demand, opportunity cost, how to research or most importantly of all good manners. You might want to consider the plight of the Venezuelans who have suffered terribly on the back of Marxist policies.

So nothing to do with US interference or Us destabilising of the economy! Do some homework, it avoids coming across as uninformed!

It doesn't help that Highways and Engineering seem to be completely separate from the rest of the Council

There's every chance that this election won't solve anything, won't produce a clear winner and we could be doing it all over again in 6 months time! 

The thread could keep running :o
