Knowle Manor, old peoples care home

In these times of cuts it does seem bizarre that money is being spent on some frivolous things whilst the old and needy suffer. It has just been announced that Party in the Park, will be held on Sunday 31 July, hosted and funded by Leeds City Council, there is expected to be an audience of 70,000 at Temple Newsam Park, Leeds. All paid for by the Leeds tax payer. What other things come before caring for the elderly? The Leeds Lord Major costs the tax payer around a third of a million pounds every year. When Judith Elliot was Lord Mayor of Leeds in 2009/10, the official figures show that two official cars cost £11,650 and £5,547 for the clothing allowance for the Mayor and her partner. Here in Morley the Town Council spends on average more than half of our taxes on admin and pomp. The very people that are campaigning to save Knowle Manor old peoples home, seem to be spending money as if no one cared. It does seem that people spend other peoples money more freely than they would their own.
