NOW if you or I are in hard times, we stop spending on luxury items and any disposable assets we may consider selling.
I wonder why, therefore, that the economic gurus (ha!) in Wakefield who have to save £22 million have decided to build a new leisure centre, and yet instead of selling the old Lightwaves decide to transfer this asset to an as yet an unnamed group.
This is a valuable asset owned by us all and as such its value should be realised on the open market and monies raised used to offset serious cuts.
Perhaps someone in authority can let us know who is to benefit from this asset and why and how they were chosen when cutbacks are the order of day?
