    At whose expense? And what does the taxpayer get in exchange?

    I guess your first question is rhetorical, the council’s. And although strictly it is “the tax payer” who pays, it’s not necessarily the Brum taxpayer as most council funding comes from central government.

    “We” get 1800x(average number of people in the family 3,4?) who may have the opportunity to do what you’ve just done Saleem, raise questions, contribute to the the debate, digitally. That’s got to be a good thing.
