I WAS not surprised to read that Uttlesford District Council's finances are still in a critical state.

It seems to me that irrespective of the party in power there is no one capable of managing a budget. Most of the householders in Uttlesford would be only too pleased to act as a consultant on this subject, having become adept at managing to budget for the extortionate council tax demands made upon them.

My own suggestion is to stop the haemorrhage of money being used to support organisations such as Stop Stansted Expansion particularly since, I understand, many members of this organisation are not averse to flying from Stansted.
