    If only that were so in Somerset. Here they have lost 25 million.

    What is interesting is that it was money they had borrowed. The wretched Government has been encouraging local authorities to borrow money at low rates and invest the borrowed money at a higher rate and pocket the difference! Might be worth asking whether Kingston does this!
