The problem is that everything costs money. Mathematically, things look good on paper. But sometimes when a radical decision is made, at a later date it is realised why you should have left things alone. In this town, in order to save money some public toilets were closed. Since then some distasteful things have been witnessed, and a headline in a local paper has appeared, which I thought I would never see as the top story in a paper. A little girl wet her knickers. What sort of society have we become? Just to save money! The council have now started, in a small way, to modify their decision. But not completely.
Our main library is in demand. And what I have seen, so are other libraries in the radius of this town. I hope that we are left alone.
Hopefully, next week's broadcast is not a brainwashing excercise. But I have doubts. It could also be a feeler. A test to see what public reaction is likely to be, should closures take place.
Only the future will knows the outcome.
