Where does our money go?

I have just been told that RDC, our Tory council, are putting our garden waste collection up to £35 per annum, that is a 40 per cent increase, this to be paid within the next three weeks.

No other notice of this iniquitous increase has been given. I live in Brede, and bearing in mind that our council tax is already ridiculously high, and we have no shops, no pavements, no street lighting, no police that I am aware of and our lane is full of pot holes – what exactly do they spend it on?

Councillors salaries? Or perhaps the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill?

Great building, but hardly relevant to our village.

Why is it considered acceptable to make villages subside towns, and why are we linked with Bexhill anyway? Yours, in anger.
