It seems incredible but did you know the Birmingham City Council now spends 90 million, yes 90 million pounds on Business Consultants. You may ask what these consultants all do?. I am beginning to believe they consult with each other on what they should consult about and very little else?

What makes this figure even more staggering for me is when I am told the Council only spend £690.000 on repairing paths and pavements throughout Birmingham. No wonder our pavements are in such a poor condition.

This really is a disgrace especially if you consider that the Council is cutting the pay of thousands of its staff. Perhaps if Whitby and Co went on fewer treks overseas they might spend abit more time keeping an eye on things locally.
