Birmingham Set To Go Bankrupt

What with the new Trams and New Library and our useless Councillors I am surprised it hasn't already happened.

They haven't wasted enough of our money yet! Stop outsourcing and paying stupid money for inferior services.

Not living in Birmingham now, I'm not sure what sort of Labour person Giseala Stuart is.Certainly elected police commisioners resulted in a right load of pratts, especially the Kent woman who didn't know what she was talking about, wasted lots of money on herself and still encouraged TV to make a documentary about her. I'm sure any politician elected as mayor would do well for themselves, though probably not for those they are supposed to represent, but then that would be expected

I've got some green bags they can have if they're a bit short , could have saved millions by not introducing wheelie bins . Went to the tip last week took nearly an hour to get in don't know how the business's cope in James Road and Hay Hall Road , they're constantly gridlocked

Another M6 toll road Lyn but on a much bigger scale , the whole funding for the project depends on how much more people are prepared to pay to get to London 20 mins earlier, how do they know this when they haven't any idea of what the price will be . The HS system is not even joined up , to get Eurostar you have to traipse across London after you get off the HS2 train
