We are so fucked.

Thankfully my council isn't on there or they would be getting a ring in the morning.

We need a concerted effort whereby a few thousand people who can afford 42 days locked up refuse to pay council tax.

We are so fucked.

I'm preparing for riots too.

No more recycling those empty gin bottles.

And Brown has the gall to say the Icelandic government has been "effectively illegal" and "completely unacceptable" in THEIR handling of the banking crisis, while pissing more of OUR money up the wall! Cunt.

Go to your next council meeting. The Council Treasurer will be there.

Ask him his name. Then ask him what the fuckity fuck he thought he was doing. Then ask him how he intends to make good the losses. Then tell him he will be blogged tomorrow. And if he doesn't find the money within 30 days, you will send in the Police. And HE will go to jail.

Watch him go white.

No, I agree with OH we are not fucked. They can stop their jollys, cut their salaries and pension contributions and admit that they did not exercise due diligence. 20% of our council tax goes on councillors' pensions so that is where they can make the cut. Given that everyone else's pension has gone to shit they can join the rest of us.

Old Holborn said...

More than that Lilleth

Demand an audit. A full, no holds barred audit.

Offer to pay for it. Take the local press along.

My local council, Braintree, have lost £5M. I intend to ask them exactly how they intend to recoup MY money without it costing ME a penny.

If it costs me a single penny, I will sue them.

Mershh

42 days, three square meals, gym, internet, library, PS3 training, human rights training from £400 ph QC's, 24/7 access to Mecca, mobile phones, drugs.

Bargain.

Bristol City Council had £8m invested. To be honest, like all the amounts on the list, this is piss in the wind for Local Authorities.

To give you an idea, Bristol City Council's annual expenditure is £1bn. Most of this goes on salaries and pensions, of course. But I can guarantee most councils spend well over £8m just on "re-branding exercises" whereby they change the name of a department or directorate (whilst keeping the same lazy, inept, sickie-pulling, strike-happy workforce) in the hope that this gives the impression of "making improvements". They'll pay for a new logo to be designed as well as new signs, letterheads, etc. Bristol City Council have done it so many times with different departments just over the last decade that I've lost count. The money wasted on these renaming exercises is just *huge*.

Fuck it

Barracade the front door. The Police will be busy.

I ain't joking

My bunch of local fuckwits have 2 million tied up in Iceland- how come they have fuck all money to do anything constructive in my village, but have this sort of cash salted away? I'm probably being naive, I know, but couldn't they have used the cash to reduce council tax?

Mine is Tory £3m up the wall- we have a meeting with Councillors next tuesday- cannot wait !

Jenna@22:32

I'm guessing the money was stashed away to contribute to the plush public sector final-salary pensions. It's what most council's expenditure goes on.

Gordon said...

One of the represenatives was on the news earlier saying it was only about 2.5% of their portfolio of investments. 2.5% and they still want it guaranteed. It's for their pensions. Anyone in a private pension has it invested with at least part on the stock market. They've lost an awful lot more recently. Write the loss of and don't you dare try and push through another above inflation rise. Band A flat in Preston and it's still over a grand. Bastards all of them.

Also, Kirsty (dodgy blouses) Wark was interviewing Osborne and claiming it was the Tories fault for starting deregulation in 1986. Still tried to stick it on them after GO pointed out Brown changed the entire regulatory system 10 years ago. Why doesn't he just call her a stupid twat for asking such ridiculous questions. It might even get a few more people to actually like the Tories rather than voting for them due to a complete lack of alternative. I know he'd go up in my opinion if he did that.

We're not fucked.

This is the best thing that could have happened to us.

The prisons are full. The rank and file police have had a gut-full like the rest of us.

The days of government profligacy are over.

It's such a great pity that Nu Lab's theories had to test us to destruction. But this is the turning point from which we all say enough is enough.

The only way this wont leave us in a big mess, if people refuse to pay any increases.

All this spunking of money by Gordon will have to be paid from somewhere; and it will be the tax payer as usual.

If Iceland can be brought under terror laws for 'destabilising' the economy, I reckon its not a huge leap to do the same to anyone who doesnt pay their council tax etc.

Father in law told me he was buying hurricane lamps the other day; I thought he was crazy. I'm not so sure now.

And I mean fucked as a nation, I'm alright (self employed, no handouts, no dosh in UK banks). For most people this is going to crucify them.

For the majority of those its going to be well deserved.

Funny reading,

Although they will have a tough time paying this back out of council tax, because a large portion of council tax pays for the over inflated pentions, subs and paypackets,
