 Actually RBC could make a big thing about spending local taxes wisely if
they chose not to spend this absurd amount of money on unnecessary kit now
that it has (apparently) been written off - making best use of expensive
resources etc etc. Personally I think the presence of MS (a large employer)
in the borough could well have rather more to do with this decision than any
considerations of need.

Mind you, writing about it here is likely to have zero effect. Write to your
councillor and complain!
