IN last Wednesday’s Echo, Cllr Kate Wheller thought the public would be enraged to pick up the £600,000 bill for Budmouth College, but it is money being spent on education.

There are far more enraging things at hand, and far more expensive too, such as grossly overpaid county councillors who are so useless at their jobs that they have to draft in expensive consultants and, at a national level, our vast Overseas Aid budget when there is so much need in this country!
