GM / Neil I'm afraid you're wasting your time, people like Spartacus / The Truth are obviously incapable of understanding figures and simply dismiss inconvenient facts such as FRS17 to suit their argument. What we desperately need is some politicians with some cojones to take this matter in hand and resolve the situation, the taxpayer cannot continue to prop up the fund ad infinitum. I'm afraid I don't share Peter Harwood's view that the current set of deputies will realise the full implications of not dealing with the issue, and it needs to be pointed out in words of one syllable exactly what those implications are. If the local equivalent of Arthur Scargill wants to threaten strikes etc then so be it, but it has to be realised that there is only so much money available and if that means making redundancies then that's just one of those things, we cannot continue with the current situation. It's a straightforward choice of substantial tax rises (political suicide) or cutting expenditure (far more popular). Surely even the more intellectually challenged of our deputies can understand that?
