It seems the poor people of Newry will be without any Christmas cheer this year as there seems to be no money left in the city as the Council have spent every penny.
£37,000 has been spent in the oversized traffic screen on Hill Street that has caused much consternation.
As welfare cuts will no doubt cripple many Newry residents don’t worry, you will sleep well in the knowledge that many of your elected representatives had a knees up jolly at the cost of a cool £5,000 of ratepayers money for Christmas in a local pub.
The council members unsurprisingly unanimously agreed to the party for THEMSELVES at a recent meeting of the council.
Plans are afoot for the council to throw another party for themselves this New Year’s Eve in a local hotel just for the craic.
