Lost your marbles!

THE town council has lost its marbles! It must have!

How else do you explain the crazy decision to refuse to adopt the statue of Harry Hotspur?

They actually made a contribution to its original cost and were involved in the early decisions on the project.

The mind boggles at their stupidity.

They are supposed to represent the town and its well-being. Their decision is both an insult to the town and to the major sponsor.

Let’s hope that common sense prevails and that the decision can be reversed in time.

At the very least, they could have delayed the process until they knew of the cost/insurance, etc. That would have been sensible.

At the present time they look stupid. I had little confidence in the council before – now I have none.
