Quietly Watching Taxpayers Money Being Wasted.


We were in the park the other day and witnessed a tragedy of sorts. I played in this place as a kid and now, my daughter and I go there to do the same.


She loves the playground, as I did when I was her age. Especially the swings and the slides. The place hasn't changed much in 30 odd years but when we arrived on this particular day, the area was fenced off and the bulldozers had destroyed it.


Ripped it up and smashed it down. When she asked why, I said they're building a new one, a better one, a modern one.


The fact that she protested the old one was perfectly OK didn't matter. When the local council decide to destroy a perfectly good facility, who can stop them?


So, we decided to sit and watch.


Silently, sadly.


What else can you do?
