Good, I wish them every bit of luck. A shame our council has not got the balls to do something similar. Some of the schools where I am are in desperate need for new buildings and cash injections to bring them up to spec.

Go My Council! My Old School has been taken out of the Sum but if this all goes through, be nice to see them get a new build.

Call me cynical, but isn't this just wasting yet more tax payers money that could be put to good use somewhere else. If they win and the government are forced into spending that money then it just means they'll have to make cuts elsewhere. If they can't cut it from the schools budgets, then you can guess which one will be next.

Yup that is exactly how I see it. Wasting public money to gain public money?! Madness!

Interesting. With a just-another-citizen-hat on I was sick to the back teeth of those well before the doom & gloom - I resented having to wade through all the pretty politically-correct smiley-happy pictures in order to extract a typically tiny bit of useful information.

Think the moral of the tale is that whenever you change something, a particular type of person will use that as an excuse to do what they do best: complain.
