One of the things you usually do not consider is the
things the local Council do with your money. At least you don't
unless you see it being blown away by the millions - and you're left
to play catch up with the Councils bank deficit via the rates
(oops Council Tax) demands....
You know - I bet the expenses claims for Councils
need a thorough checking out - there's been little talk of that at
the moment - but someone should take a REALLY close look at whose
sponging from the tax payers and these boys are no exception - after
all - would YOU trust them?
Here in the UK SOME Councils set up in business against local
businesses and use Government money to compete, utilise their own
companies (in cahoots with others) to stop local businesses from
tendering for work and so on.... not really the way that the
Government has suggested it should be.
Our first choice for the Council honour is Stoke on Trent City
Council - the full details we guarantee will shock you as much as
they did when we found out some of the things going on with the
public's money... for a full low down click the menu on the
left. It's a bit dated because I don't always have the latest news -
they keep it to themselves - along with the expenses claims....
There are many Councils who know how to run the
gauntlet on LAND. It's simple really, just drive around and look for
some old houses, decide that they have to be pulled down, MAKE the
owner sell for a pittance with a compulsory order and hey presto -
They then proceed to pull down the houses, level the
ground and resell to some well known builders that they like to
'partner' with. Stoke council and St Modwen spring to mind, but
that's only alleged of course.
Here at greedybastards.co.uk we would hate to think that we did not
get any facts right - so it's all alleged I'm afraid.
