FOR once, Uttlesford District Council is planning for the future. Due to global warming, tourism as we know it is about to end making the Tourist Information Centre redundant.

Experts are forecasting that the cost of a litre of petrol will be £2 by the end of the year. When airline fuel is taxed at the same rate as cars, a return journey to the USA will cost £10,000.

Gas and electricity prices have just been increased by 15 per cent. Council tax will be increased by the maximum allowed. Car parking charges are to be increased. Holidays and tourism will be only for the very rich.

All the information you require about Saffron Walden can be found on the net. I feel sorry for the individuals who will lose their jobs but according to the Government there are plenty of jobs available for those who want to work.
