Northumberland County Council, who lost £23 million of taxpayers’ money in Icelandic banks, is having a Public Question Time at on Wednesday, 5 November 2008 at 4.00 p.m. in the Council Chamber, County Hall, Morpeth.
Please visit this link for details about putting your question to the Council leader and cabinet as well as further information about attending: http://pscm.northumberland.gov.uk/pls/portal92/docs/24437
This council lost your money. We strongly encourage you turn up, fly the TPA banner and hold them to account. Ask them why they didn’t heed the warnings widely put forth that Iceland’s banks weren’t in a strong enough state to invest in. Ask them why they didn’t put the £23 million towards lowering your council tax. Finally, demand they not use their incompetence as an excuse to raise your taxes next year.
