Some interesting facts have been revealed last week on items of expenditure by Wigan MBC from its £130 million budget.
Items of expenditure listed were all for amounts more than £500, some of which look suspicially like freebies for councillors.
A couple of drinks for unpaid councillors I can accept but our councillors are well paid and should in that case pay for their own booze.

But one item of expenditure did astonish me.

A grant has been made to "a  gay music radio station"
We know it is at least £500 but there is no mention of the name of the station.

Wigan was traditionally a mining and engineering town and "gays" were very much the exception rather than the rule.
Those few with an artistic or thespian bent usually did as "Sir" Ian McKellen and sloped off to environments more vibrant and congenial to their lifestyle, leaving us with a town overwhelmingly heterosexual.

As far as a radio station is concerned I was not aware that the difference between those of un natural sexual proclivities and normal people extended to music.
I thought (apart from pornographic homoerotic songs) that music tastes were generally similar.

I have nothing against homosexuals doing what they want in private but I don't know where the ruling Labour group got the idea that council tax payers would welcome their hard earned money being squandered in that way as frontline services are cut.
Why should people making use of a different orifice for sex justify a subsidy?
Perhaps the council are chasing "the gay vote".

If so they will be disappointed but in any case why should they care. It is not their money they are wasting,IT'S OURS.

I know in the context of £130 million the money donated is a small amount, but what about all the other ways in which they waste money?

I know they spend £millions on housing immigrants in houses which were built for us.
I do not know whether Elliot Brown is till employed, the man who said that Wiganers were inbred and needed an infusion of  foreign blood, and if justice had been done would have been prosecuted for racism.

All these are un necessary burdens on our council tax payers and together must add up to a huge cost.

Who decides these expenditures and grants? Certainly not the voters.
