I live in Teesside and regularly see one council worker on a drive along grass cutter, with someone following along behind with what looks like a space pack blowing the cut grass back off the pavement and onto the verge, no doubt in case some sad person sued for getting grass on their shoes. Surely this is a complete waste of our council tax.

Caerphilly Council are a waste of space, we don't even get recycling facilities.

The roads around here are a mess, the streets full of

dog poo and hoardes of chavs hang around our local Spar and chippy because theresnowhere else for them to go - even though the Council want to build a "Sk8-er Boi" ramp thing.

What do we pay Council Tax for? When we nearly got repossessed last year (I was heavily pregnant and ill) and had to stop work) we went to the Council to enquire about rehousing and were basically told we'd have more chance of getting sexual favours from the Pope. Nice to hear that all the Council Tax we've paid won't be doing us any good.

They do spend a lot of time putting hanging baskets full of petunias up everywhere, though.

Newport Council are even better though - they wasted MILLIONS on a stupid 14 metre high "Wave" sculpture (that looks like a big piece of lego) alongside the riverfron

and a stupid "clock" thing that opens when it strikes the hour and all these devils and stuff come out.

Totally pointless - entertained people for about 5 minutes. This is only a sample of their stupidity.
