22 coun­cils is lu­di­crous

Cynon Valley - - YOUR VIEWS -

THE op­po­si­tion to lo­cal author­ity re­duc­tion in­di­cates very clearly that coun­cil lead­ers and mem­bers want to be big fish in lit­tle pools while coun­cil tax pay­ers are groan­ing un­der the weight of the tax bur­den which is con­tin­u­ing to in­crease and will in­crease ad in­fini­tum.

The il­log­i­cal lu­di­crous ex­pense of du­pli­cat­ing by 22 CEOs, ed­u­ca­tion, high­ways, so­cial ser­vices depart­ment etc is the lo­cal author­ity ver­sion of the Mad Hat­ter’s Tea Party.

The As­sem­bly must take this in­sult to the in­tel­li­gence and pock­ets of Welsh tax­pay­ers and kick it into touch.

A com­mer­cial com­pany op­er­at­ing in this fash­ion would soon be out of busi­ness, it could not keep in­creas­ing prices as the cur­rent lo­cal author­ity struc­ture is do­ing. Dennis Jones New­bridge, Caer­philly
