First Super Council

London's going to be the first place in the country to have a Super-Council. Three Tory-run authorities will share services, aiming to save 35 million pounds a year.

My comment: Super council = super failings, super incompetence, super wrongdoings and super fat cats in control. Also what happens if another political party gains control of one of the councils party to the super council? A super divorce?

Fears over merger plans for London councils' services

Three Conservative councils claim they will save £35m a year by merging departments and sharing services.

Westminster, Kensington and Chelsea and Hammersmith and Fulham say the plan will affect mainly town hall managers while limiting cuts that will affect the public.

But opponents say services will inevitably suffer from the merger.

My comment: Hammersmith and Fulham are already planning to sell off the family silver.
