I heard that on the news, Badboy. The Council spokesperson said that all finances will be facing cutbacks except wages and vulnerable adults. This is due to reduced monetary supplements that is normally supplied from central government.

Why are the council's wages not facing restrictions or even reduction? Council leaders, in general have a greater yearly income than the Prime Minister. The councils put their rates up EVERY year without fail and the majority of council services are nowadays put out to tender, it's time these continued upward spirals and reductions in services were investigated and explained.

The people who pay their rates are not considered in the outcomes of any decisions taken by the VIPs in council offices.
I was surprised by the statement of Northampton spokeswoman who laid the blame at the door of The Conservative Government, seeing as Northanpton is controlled by an all Tory council..

The fiscal problems that the majority of our councils are experiencing is the councillors pay themselves too much. (imho)...

They claiming their resources are running dry, then they need to declare the council bankrupt and be properly audited, just as would any private concern. This would expose where the ever increasing sums of money which they take under threats of prosecution from the public for services that have decreased year by year is actually going. How many council WORKERS have been made redundant, how many private contractors have been hired to do the work previously done by councils. Compare the figures with increased numbers of office staff, computer systems upgrades and new vehicles purchased for the 'higher echelon' of Council bosses, whilst vehicles for council worker use are hired from private rental firms.

I think that the figures you quote and the vested interest in the consultancy explains the general reason that the council has ran out of money.

MAYBE THERE SHOULD BE A LAW ON COUNCIL REMUNATION(SP?) FOR COUNCIL EMPLOYEES LIKE NO HIGHER THAN X SUM OF MONEY PAID TO COUNCIL EMPLOYEES.
WITH THE SUMS OF MONEY BEING SPEND,THEY COULD SPONSOR SOMEONE,ME THAT IS, TO VISIT PLACES ASSOCIATED WITH THE REMARKABLE STORY OF ONE OF MY ANCESTORS AND STILL HAVE CHANGE FROM MONEY ON THESE CONSULTANCY FEES,THE PUBLICITY ALONE ON THE AMAZING STORY COULD BRING IN THE TOURISTS POTENTIALY CREATING JOBS,ESPECIALLY IF AMAZING STORY WAS PUT ON YOUTUBE.
IT CALLED PUTTING THE PEOPLE OF NORTHAMPTONSHIRE FIRST.

I UNDERSTAND FROM GUARDIAN TODAY THAT THE NC COUNCIL ARE TO MEET TO DISCUSS THEIR BUDGET,SAYING THEY DON'T EVEN HAVE MONEY TO CARE FOR VULNERABLE CHILDREN AND ADULTS,SO MAY HAVE TO BREACH STATATURY OBLIGIONS.
MAYBE GOVERNMENT SHOULD SEND IN THE COMMISSIONERS TO RUN IT.

They need to be audited, I'll be surprised if the council members themselves have taken a salary reduction. But I'm pretty sure they will have reduced services and cut staff numbers.

It sounds as if these councils are putting the blame for the shortage of funds available on the elderly taking more than their share.

Other councils and Jeremy Hunt when he was Minister for Health have said the same, "The elderly are to blame". Suggesting that because they are living longer we are taking too much money from the pot although we have paid into the scheme for 50 years and more in some cases.... Completely ignoring the fact that there are too many migrants being brought into our country, (under directions from the EU) who have never worked a day here nor paid a penny into the funds from which they are paid.

You are spot on Malena the elderly are blamed for sucking the country dry. They are blamed for the housing shortage, hospital bed shortage, social fund shortage. Nothing to do with the fact that we are over populated because of migrants, nothing to do with huge amounts of money paid to useless managers and overpaid civil servants, it takes five of them to do a job one can do. Still the elderly are unrepresented and are easy targets, blaming everything on them is leading to the most shocking ageism in this country. It has never been known before, we used to respect and love our parents and grandparents.

However, all guilty of it will reap what they sow and it can only get worse.

Good afternoon fuzeta. It will get a lot worse I'm sure, many of our migrants do work and work hard, but there are only so many jobs available and with technological advances there will be less heavy industry and manual work with an increase in computer designed and built machinery.

In the past we were promised earlier retirements and an easy life in our golden years by politicians, they have plainly lied as retirement ages have been increased and cost of living increased. Not directly because of technology but because the workers pool has been flooded by cheap foreign labour and our heavy and nationalised industries illegally sold off or sent to foreign lands, our coal mines closed leaving 400 years of high grade coal in flooded and unusable pits. We now have to buy low grade coal from the EU. Instead of training and educating our own people we import from abroad. The majority of our children cannot receive a higher education because all universities are charging extortionate fees only afforded by the moguls abroad.

All this because it's cheaper and more profitable than maintaining our own skills, workforce and education systems, and of course filling the greedy pockets and purses of the detritus in the Commons and the Lords.
