  1. Where does the money we pay to local authorities such as land rates, fire and trading licenses, parking, bus station and market leavy go. We need to know. Can the minister of local government explain these simple questions

  2. (1) The AGs report is as good as used toilet tissue. It has never led to a prosecution, arrest, disciplinary action or even a wrist slap. That office is just a bunch of stuck up sh1ts that think the sun shines from the ass (2) The AG is a waste of public resources.
