Free swimming

How will swimming pools ration limited space when they will soon be free to all!?!

Will there be swimming pool waiting lists or will appointments be required 48 hours in advance!?!

PS How many new swimmers will take up the sport or is it just a subsidy to existing swimmers!?!

It's all shit, isn't it? And are the Tories pointing out what a crap idea it is? Hmmm, nope, thought not.

The £80 million funding to scrap charges for the over 60s will eventually be spent.

And I absolutely guarantee you it will not be renewed once it has been spent.

Funding new obligations for three years is standard government practice. When the money stops the obligation continues - at the local authorities' expense.
