When will they stop

AT a time of severe austerity cuts by Central Government, when are our local politicians going to get it into their heads, that people are struggling and they have got to stop being frivolous with taxpayers money.
We now have Heather Joyce saying that millions of pounds of savings will have to be made due to a shortfall in the grants the council gets from the Welsh Assembly, yet lo and behold they can afford to fork out millions of pounds on managers, but they cant even keep a toilet open.
Carwyn Jones is also playing from the same fiddle yet he can dish out money like confetti when it comes to his Airport baby, which is costing us the taxpayer an enormous amount of money.
And now we have the Vale Council who have just jumped on the spending bandwagon to purchase luxury chairs for themselves at a cost of over £50,000, would they pay over £700 on a chair for their homes. I bet they wouldn't. They should be ashamed of themselves and whoever authorised this disgraceful expenditure should hang their heads in shame and resign. Just think of all the mouths that all this waste from these politicians could have fed with this money. But as we all know just like these politicians in Westminster who have a nice big fat salary, gold plated pensions, very generous expense accounts why should they care about the rest of us.
Come election time they will be knocking our doors, but not mine I hope, asking for our votes. You want to become a politician because you want to screw us the taxpayer while you feather your own nest, GO AWAY.
