Taxes down the drain

On the night of Monday 4 July I was woken in the early hours of the morning by the rain.

on looking out of the window I could see it bouncing off the road in quite a heavy downpour.

The following day I was driving up Bagdale mid morning it was still raining quite heavily and guess what, some one from the council was at the road side with a small water tanker watering the flowers.

Now in these days of cutbacks and money saving wouldn’t you think the person in charge would have more sense.

Is this where our taxes go, down the drain?
