COSLA, bins and high-speed

Mentioned the impending, financial-doom for Local Government a couple of days ago ... well, I went along to the monthly COSLA Leaders meeting this morning, and pleased to report that there was (at last) a bit of a fightback against the (what I consider) appallingly bad finance settlement that is on the horizon ...

... Labour Group Leaders moved an amendment which opened with the words: "Opposes in principle the threat of financial sanctions which fundamentally undermines Local Government".

I couldn't agree more!

In other news, never-mind the economy as all is well in the world with
weekly bin collections returning to a street near you, and the ability for all of us to drive at 80mph on motorways looking imminent ...

... anyone would think it was political-conference season :-(
