Southwark Council want to spend 120k on A roof terrace!

(Thanks to @juptin for passing this one to me)

In the past I have been quite critical over the matter of the wasted expenditure, and it is something that I think we should keep an eye upon as Councils (and even the Government) spend our tax money in trust on services that will benefit the area/country.

I am proud to say that the LibDem faction of Southwark council caught and blocked this bid by the Southwark Labour council to spend £120k on building a roof terrace at the Council HQ at Tooley Street for VIP functions!

According to Lib Dem Councillor Anood Al-Samerai's website this facility wouldn't be open to anyone but the Labour Mayor, Labour colleagues and VIPs from buisness soirees.

This expenditure from a council that is closing Older Resident Daycares and Council employees are facing redundancy!

"I am delighted that Liberal Democrat Councillors in Bermondsey stood up for the residents of our borough and refused this outrageous Labour Plan."

Councillor Anood Al-Samerai said at the Bermondsey Community Council Planning meeting on the 8th September.

"This shows why it is so important that elected local councillors make planning decisions at local community councils rather than the centralised decision making that Labour wants.
Lib Dems continue to campaign agains t Labour waste and Hypocrisy."

Indeed we should against any governing power, including our own.
