When Peter Gilroy Chief Executive of Kent council was kind enough to inform me that Kent TV, would contribute a
gazillion sorry million pounds in savings to Kent Council I simply couldn’t believe it, still that was before Lynda McMullen KCC Finance Director was kind enough to furnish me with details to substantiate that figure.
As you would expect from a 5 star council when they say they’ll save a million, they mean it and now the figures have been revealed exclusively to Bignews Margate, although I have sent a copy to a rather miffed Paul Francis Political Editor for the KM Group who seemed to get short shrift having enquired for similar figures earlier.
To save you the headache of reading through the highly scientific calculations it seems most savings have come about as a result of not printing leaflets, oh and also not wasting money on expensive advertising telling you the er blimin obvious like for Highways er speed is not a good thing and accidents happen.
Still for the more curious, you’ll appreciate the elegant way the figures add up exactly to the right amount, if only my finances were so clear cut. (if you click on the image it should expand a bit).
I’m not entirely convinced the savings made couldn’t have occurred without squandering a couple of mill on Kent TV.
