Doom and gloom

I HAVE read with great interest that Hartlepool Borough Council is considering buying Jacksons Landing.

With all the doom and gloom about cutbacks and job loses, can anyone tell me how the council is going to fund this venture after the disastrous attempt at the Tall Ships Races?

I and many more taxpayers would like this to be put on the back burner and concentrate on what is going on with the town as it is.

If this situation was in the private sector (as has happened to many), companies and their staff may have chosen to reduce their pay by at least 10 per cent to minimise job losses.

The cuts as has already been said should start at the top.
