Could you imagine if you phoned up Salford Council and said things are a bit tight this month so i am taking a payment holiday? You would get a gasp and a letter threating to take you to court the next day. But in Salford Council it seems Payment holidays and Interest payment holidays are the norm. Why would you think we take payment holidays well to be a little cynical i think because we are struggling with the budgets and well its hard to knock down the reserves any further than they all ready are or reduce the insurance pots.I think some residents should go on the net and download the papers for the budget scrutiny panel they make very interesting reading. One more thought Steve Kingston raised the issue of the BBC band.Ask your self a second question why did we go into any agreements that sponsored the Orchestra?it was based at Oxford Road Oxford Road is coming to media city so where would the Band have gone? and to be honest as any one who reads this Blog seen it? worth the money just think what we could have done with £20 million pounds in my opinion one more of Cllr Merrys white Elephants on par with the Ice Rink and Salford Life.If people sat back and bothered to ask the questions they may be a little shocked on how much this Labour Council wastes perhaps when the Jobs start to disappear people may start to act.i believe one Tory asked the question did we really need all these people in relation to the jobs that have already gone the true face of the Tories?
