NOT content with being allowed to get away without being disciplined for allowing a £3 million overspend on a budget at the campus, it now seems the officers responsible claim the fault lay in lack of suitably qualified staff. On this pretext they claim the need for more surveyors and engineers, who would no doubt swell the ranks of their already bloated staff ratios and thereby allow them to qualify for yet more pay rises because of 'increased responsibilities'.To the long-suffering taxpayers of North Somerset this suggestion is an outrage. Whilst the fault for overspending clearly lay in the project being inexpertly managed, the cure is to sack the squanderbug officers who allowed it to happen in the first place and employ properly qualified staff in their place. If the present council shrinks from this duty, then the taxpayers need only wait until next May when once more they can express their disgust in the time honoured fashion.By that time there will be a new party on the block that is prepared to sack the squanderbugs.J D PARRYVictoria Park, Weston
