Library money earmarked for better flowerbeds in Brent
Having convinced the government and the judiciary that there is NO MONEY FOR LIBRARIES, and that cuts will now be made in essential services, Brent has found £420,000 extra to give to Ward Working, a fund that local councillors spend on grafitti workshops, noticeboards and flowerbeds.
It costs under £400,000 to keep open all 6 libraries closed last year. Less if efficiencies were made. At tonight’s budget meeting, Leader Ann John announced the same amount would now be available Ward Working, raising it’s budget from £800,000+ to more than £1.2 million each year.
