Peter Rochford makes a very valid point in his recent letter, and is spot on with his calculation regarding “savings”.
Maybe Iain Malcolm would like to repay some of the £100,000, which it was reputed to have cost the council in his search for Mr Monkey (remember him?) – before he comes up with any more great ideas.
I will agree to increased taxes when he agrees to repay the council tax money he wasted.
Alternatively, in order to make amends for allowing such a ridiculous fiasco, let the councillors who, in their wisdom, sanctioned the release of this money – be the ones to come and empty our green bin for free.
