Bor­row­ing £260m is bla­tant profli­gacy

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

In re­ply to story ‘Split over fund­ing of pot­hole re­pairs’, Bucks Ad­ver­tiser front page, Jan­uary 15: I THINK Martin Tett has it about right.

To bor­row £260mil­lion with no rea­son­able com­mer­cial fea­si­bil­ity [or] to re­ceive any fi­nan­cial payback is noth­ing short of bla­tant profli­gacy.

We live in an era of fi­nan­cial con­straint.

Doubt­less the Lib Dems will adopt ‘pot­hole re­pairs’ at any cost as one of their main planks in the forth­com­ing Dis­trict elec­tions.

I can’t wait to see the prover­bial hit the fan.
