Ken Livingstone, our current Labour Mayor, spends our money like it’s going out of fashion.
The huge increase in staff costs, expensive and ineffectual congestion charge, huge bus subsidies, I could go on. In fact I will.
£100 million on advertising! £100,000,000 per year on advertising? Every year!!!!!!
£78 million just to tell us our transport system is great when we all know that it isn’t. You could do a lot with that £78 million, small business grants for example, support for drug rehabilitation programs, reduction in Mayor’s councilncil tax precept. Why not spend it actually making the transport system work rather than just telling us it does?
There should be a big sign on the wall of every office in the GLA building saying “Remember whose Money Your Spending!”
