Mainly For Brummies But All Are Welcome To Join In The Birmingham Fun & Chat
War in Libya
This is the place where Brummies used to chat about Birmingham old and new along with anything else that interests us.
We have Quizzes, Pizzas, Local History, News, Politics, Wedding Cake, Plum Pudding, Champagne, Easter Eggs and, above all, Respect for our fellow members.
The treasury have admmitted that the war in Libya will cost hundreds of millions of pounds. But don't worry they say, this money comes from a Reserve set aside for this. Presumably this Reserve was provided by the fairies.
If we can finance a war in terms of billions (and I think you're right) then we're not really hard up. Add to that Overseas aid etc. however necessary, and we're spending to little advantage for hard pressed local councils. And looming on the horizon is our probable contribution to Greece's debt. The goldn days are over.
