Tory council wastes money on an umbrella-wrapping machine but cuts lollipop ladies


Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the Tories!)

Conservative councillors in Tory-controlled Croydon council decided to spend over £140 million on a lavish new HQ for themselves.

No expense has been spared on their cosy new offices – the building comes complete with taps costing £272 each and a £410 umbrella-wrapping machine (I kid you not).

Mind you, at the same time, the council has been telling residents money is so tight that cuts will have to be made to services for the elderly, the disabled, people with mental health problems, youth programmes and children’s care programmes including the axing of school crossing patrols:

Croydon Council’s proposed cuts to hit borough’s most vulnerable

Glad to see Tories getting their priorities right again.
