£2 million to ask a simple question?

Question - Do you want to keep Northampton Borough Council as your landlord?

It is difficult to explain what the thinking is behind the decision to spend £2 million on a housing option appraisal asking tenants if they want to keep Northampton Borough Council as their landlord or be transferred to a Housing Association.

Especially when it was the Conservatives who were up in arms when the Liberal Democrats spent over a million pounds on the failed PFI bid in Eastfield.

This is going to be and will undoubtedly come back to haunt the Borough Council Conservatives whose Leader Cllr Mackintosh keeps telling everyone who is prepared to listen that there isn’t any money and it has to be spent wisely?

One, Two Million reasons why this is simply wrong?

One question to all of Northampton Taxpayers,

Should Northampton Borough Council spend £2 million on consultants to ask tenants who they would like their landlord to be?

I suspect we all know what the answer will be.
