Splash the cash on dog scheme

PUBLISHED: 14:35 09 December 2010

i wrote to you before about the advantages of having all dogs in islington microchipped and licensed.

However, i think that if the council wants to roll with the idea, then it should supply the service for free.

For free, i hear you scream. well I think the capital could come from cancelling the town hall christmas party and putting the money towards good community use.

after all, it is public cash. and if people are going to complain about austerity measures, then it is a bit hypocritical to go marching one day in protest and then the next to have a freebie at the town hall. are we all in this together or what ? – m.g. mcelligott, amwell street, EC1.
