    Nice one Rick!

    How about a Payday Loan to kick the can down the road? Just like them Muni Bonds in the US…

    So local authorities are perfectly lean mean public service machines with absolutely no waste that could be cut without closing libraries, meals on wheel, grants to local groups etc etc?

    Yeh and pigs are flying by my window right now. Give me the authority and I could cut my local authority spending by 10% within months without cutting one vital service. Councils NEVER cut what needs to be cut because doing so would show them in a bad light. They cut the frontline first because that offloads the blame onto the ‘nasty’ central govt. Classic public sector shroud waving techniques, the same for decades.

    Go on then Jim. How would you do it?
