Yes they are. Ask me how I know
I didn't notice you can't turn right into Warham when going south on Green Lanes ( but at least I indicated )
They appear to have had a £7.2m underspend. See: the most recent Corporate Committee papers.
From the same papers they also seem to have even more high-earning senior staff than the previous year.
I may have misunderstood this and am prepared to be corrected and apologise. But please, by someone from outside.
There's a surprise... Apparently the head of our council earns more than the Prime Minister, which is why I find a bit annoying that a lot of basic local services in Haringey are being cut down to the core. It seems that we have a severe case of "too many chiefs, not enough indians"
From a couple of years ago, I do not have the latest figures...
The only thing it proves to me is that the whole "right to buy" thing is fatally flawed.
For me it's much the same principle as "broken window" theory.... if a broken window goes unfixed, it makes anyone walking by think that no one cares and no one is in charge. That in turn makes anti-social behaviour more prevalent and crime goes up. When we walk past these people every day and don't do something about it, it normalises something that we should still find shocking. I find it shocking. No one should have to live that way.
I've observed the same phenomenon with fly-tipping: there's a spot on Haringey road where stuff gets dumped practically every day. Since rubbish was left unattended there for a while some time ago, everyone now thinks that's the place to dump things...
Those purple bags...
