This is a spare 'blog in case my main 'blog at markwadsworth.blogspot.com isn't working

Help me out here…

This paragraph from an article in The Telegraph about the impending failure of Souther Cross Care homes – and whether taxpayers’ money should be used to bail them out – immediately caught my eye:

Southern Cross, which made a £311 million loss in the six months to the end of March, has blamed its problems on reduced council spending on long-term care. The group announced this week that it will be forced to cut the rent it pays to the landlords of the homes it runs by 30% for four months.

Nuff said.
