Laughing stock of the country
I READ in Friday's edition of The Sentinel that Stoke-on-Trent City Council is facing another £50 million of budget cuts by the Government.
Labour and council leader Mohammed Pervez, pictured below, said: "It hurt last time but you can be sure that the pain is going to be worse this time around."
Yes, Mr Pervez the pain will be worse – but not for your lot of incompetent councillors, who follow one hare-brained scheme after another, led by you.
It will be more painful for the good people of this city, to whom, I am sure, the pain will be passed on under the disguise of more council tax next year. We are just being used like a cash dispensing machine.

No matter what other city I visit in this country or abroad, nothing looks like as bad as Stoke-on-Trent.
We had a lot of bombing during the war when Hitler was trying to find the munitions factory at Swynnerton, or Shelton Iron and Steel. But all the Germans needed to have done was to employ our Labour council, who have done a much better job.
This was once a thriving city. Now we are the laughing stock of the country for putting up with you lot. We are moving backwards, not forwards.
I would like to bet that you will still carry on with your idea of moving to Hanley, putting all of us in even more debt of £40 million, plus interest.
This city is now in a disgraceful state. The Government ought to take over its running before we are totally bankrupt.
