    Isnt a bit tricky giving public money to the Heald Green Ratepayers Association, with its role also including supporting that ward’s three councillors – inherently making it a “political” organisation?

  2. Iain Roberts says:

    I don’t think money would ever be given for any political purpose.

  3. John Hartley says:


    My point was that there’s an inherent blurring of the lines here. Means the Association could very well say (or, more likely, imply) “Hey, we do a great job running the Village Hall, including getting the council to pay for a defibrillator, so vote for us next election”. I used to live in Heald Green and recall how often the those lines were blurred there.

    Still being profligate with the taxpayers hard earned money…
    No ‘do gooding’ groups should receive any such money – they should make the effort to make their case to the wider public with their ‘rattling cans’ if they cannot find any from their own pockets.
    It is no good saying that the sums requested are small – THEY ALL ADD UP.
    Stocky taxpayers have been the most ripped-off ever since the ‘dead parrot brigade’ took control in the early 90’s…
    From being the second lowest taxed of the ten GMC District Councils to being the highest.
    It is no wonder those who know the value of money are moving out in increasing numbers.

  5. John H says:

    I see a request for £1000 TOWARDS the cost of a defibrillator. The cost of these life saving units has fallen.

    Just one example look at “The Defib Shop” website.
    Based in Irlam they have 18 different units under £1000 stating at £695

      In an overpopulated country in an overpopulated world – why are people more obsessed than ever in saving life?
      Death is simply natures way of trying to keep the numbers in check – a battle which nature is unfortunately losing.
      Death comes to everyone – everyone needs to get used to that!
