Who'd have ever guessed it?

Bristol City Council is looking for urgent savings in this year’s budget of up to £2 million. It is overspending on waste services (£1.5m), care for the elderly (£1.5m), taxi services for special needs youngsters (£400,000) and concessionary bus fares (£500,000).

The facts are: if you want to keep home care in-house then something else will have to be cut. We need to know what that is now. It’s no good taking spending decisions now and then trying to find the money in 6 months. We’ve been there before.

    Well, bristolcitizen, how about slashing the numerous and unnecessary consultants – the CYPS department alone spends hundreds of thousands of pounds of our money on them….

    Why don’t they stop building those useless fucking chicanes and yuppie boondoggles like the “Museum of Bristol”? I was perfectly happy with a road system that didn’t look like Brands Hatch and I loved the Industrial Museum.

    Only a corrupt sink like Bristol would handouts to the local business community so blatantly take priority over handouts to the needy!
