How “They” Spend Your Money
Looks like Welsh Councils have credit cards!
And they use ’em for all sorts of purposes, many – perhaps most – of which do not benefit those they serve. They serve – in case you’re a Councillor somewhere in our land – the people whose area they “rule”.
The Taxpayers Alliance, which is a group set up to keep an eye on what our Councils get up to, revealed that among lots of other things lots of taxpayers’ money was spent at Tesco and iTunes!!! Pembrokeshire Council, it seems, has the biggest credit-card spending record.
I would suggest that you check your own County Council’s spending. Bear in mind that there would be interest to be paid for credit card transactions.

Short but not sweet!
Yes, I haven’t written much this week. That’s not because nothing much has happened in Wales this week. It’s because my time has been very limited. I will try, try, try to write a proper column next week.
