Councillor slams government for "financial illiteracy"

Llangollen county councillor Stuart Davies has sent the following letter to llanblogger:

"I am appalled by this latest example of financial illiteracy by the Labour-led Welsh Government (see note below).

"They have chopped our budgets forcing us to make savage cuts in our services and yet, when we have gone through the pain of this year's budget process, they mock us by offering £1.5 million to spend on play equipment. Oh and we have to spend it before the end of March!

"They obviously have not budgeted well, have monies left over, and are desperate to spend it before years end!

"It beggars belief that they cannot manage monies properly when we see the NHS cutting midwife services in our hospitals and overspending by £78 million this year."

  1. This is no different from the financial illiteracy that reckons that the rates from a smaller factory plus the rates from a supermarket less the rates from the closed town shops is equal to more than the status quo. This equation is particularly mocking when you minus the supermarket. Councillor Davies needs to look around him - at the glass house in which he is living.
