MAY we express our total disgust that the employees of the council/civil service, should think that they have the right to benefit over those who provide the taxes to pay their wages! The fact is that not only have the general public suffered from reducing staffing levels for years, but also reducing pensions without being able to do anything about it, but are also expected to pay for those with job protection (through requiring their own qualifications). When Westlands closed, we were told by staff at the job centre that they could not recall a single person that they had referred to the council, being recruited!It is now time that they joined the real world and stopped moaning! Much has been said over failed projects, missed grants, massive increases for existing managers through new titles etc. Has anyone ever been reprimanded/demoted? It is our council tax that must provide the funds. Let the public have their say!Let's also just raze the Tropicana to the ground. Enough of this fiasco! Many years ago I said that the old seafront bus station should be made into a pool/attraction, as it is the visitors that should provide subsidised facilities for the residents is it not? It's not the council's place to provide profit making for business at the loss to local population is it?M JEFFREY - Locking Road, Weston
