Sale of courts balls up.................

Why the 'f 'didnt the police move there instead of building the new white elephant that is rarely open and using up loads of parking spaces as well?
I'd like to know how much was spent building the now empty magistrates court and how much has been lost when taking into account the low selling price of around 1 million pounds. Someone or several need the sack for gross negligence.
We are surrounded by inefficient and useless coucillors and police governing bodies.

Neither the council nor the police are responsible for the court service.
Kindly direct your ire at the appropriate target [Court Service, Department of Justice].
It is your income tax/VAT that is being wasted; not your council tax.
Unless I am much mistaken, the police service had already committed to building the new police station/white elephant (that was your council tax) when the closure of the magistrates' court was announced.

@Magistrate. Ask your local MP Norman Baker about the business case for closing the magistrates court. His government closed it in the first place. Doesn't seem like much of a saving to me. BTW, wasn't the new police station paid for by the sale of the old police station?

@Magistrate. Exactly, I was only thinking the same recently. Some Public Servant, Committee, Quango, Whatever has wasted millions of OUR money. Surely, heads must roll. Only trouble is folks - this is happening across the country. I doubt the sale of the Old Police Station paid for the new one ! Duh !
But we gave the developer a good profit unnecessarily.
