After reading that Camden got hit with a £9m budget reduction following a DCLG "error", I went looking a little more. No details on what the error was yet, but I love what these Camden Council minutes say between-the-lines:
"As this was discovered at a rather late stage in the budget setting process, it would have a knock on effect on other Council resources. The Committee expressed their disappointment and displeasure at the DCLGs ineptitude in its over estimation of these funds." (emphasis mine)
Ha, yeah, I bet they did. "Expressed" is probably a polite word for it.
