|Wet, wet,wet. Over and out...|
Once again the Christmas panto season comes early, this time ( as an audioboo https://audioboo.fm/boos/2390933-stop-moaning-and-groaning-about-cathedral-sq-fountains-says-tory-mayor ) from Mr Mayor Cllr David Over has been sent to Trib Towers. We hear Mr Mayor, insisting that we should all stop moaning about the obscene amounts of borrowed public money flushed away on the Cereste Memorial Fountains Pigeon and Small Dirty Boy Wash - to give the installation its full honorific title. Cllr Over you may recall, is the Conservative councillor who spent an entire main council session writing out his Christmas Cards. We watched him, and seemingly appointed Cllr Travelling* Turnip as his Deputy, although we hear the role had been awarded to someone else!
The doughty councillor insists "the fountains didn't cost a lot of money" perhaps if Cllr Over read his papers 'over' again (see what we did there?) with a little more care, and add up all the 'extra to contract' costs, re-engineering, and additional year on year annual running costs associated with this 'folly' he might like to reconsider how the money could be better used: re instating local bus services, reopening childrens centres, hot meals on wheels and so on. Simply mountains of borrowed public money has been wasted by the PCC over the years, and the fiscal chickens are now coming home to roost.
Happily Mr Mayors remarks will fall on deaf ears, and he'll go back to his prime role of raising money for his nominated charities and handing out red cards during council sessions.
