Andy Murrill, I feel like I pay enough tax already, so yes, I want the CAB to be supported with public money because they do a fantastic job supporting people who have nowhere else to turn, but how are we even talking about cutting essential West Berkshire Council services like the CAB when Newbury Town Council is frittering £1,000,000 of parish precept on a ceremonial Mayoralty and so much other pointless niff-naff. There's an easy £500,000 to be saved by down-sizing the town council and I'd really rather see that before I'm asked to pay more in tax or any more essential public services go to the wall. So how about asking whether the Newbury parishioners would prefer their tax spent dressing up the chaiman of the parish council in a fox-furred robe and tri-corn hat, or whether they'd prefer public money spending on actual public services.
