Another great council investment!
Our local authorities have a huge responsibility. They look after everything from keeping the streets clean to ensuring every whim of the LGBT community is catered for. All paid for by us, the inhabitants of the real world.
So even I was surprised that part of a council's remit was to give tax payers cash to failing local businesses with, apparently, no questions asked.
I think I might uproot the RantinRab clan and head for a new life in Northumberland. It seems like a land of milk and honey with the streets paved with gold. It must be, the council can afford to give 'loans' to local enterprise.
Oops! Maybe not. The council has a deficit of £102.6 million. Well, a deficit of £102.85 million now.
On a brighter note, it's nice of Northumberland Foods to leave a note of thanks to the council on their website...
