Wolverhampton Magistrates' Court being a public building, the heating was on from 1st October.
In my court this morning, all doors and adjoining windows were open and we had a total of six electric fans running just to bring the room down to merely equatorial. How about that for saving public money?
Further, to save even more money the admin got rid of the Court building's caretaker, which meant that since Wednesday, nobody has been able to discover how to turn the heating off, or at least, down.
The only option, we are told, is to call out the maintenance contractor whose services replaced those of the caretaker.
The problem is, they are only a cheaper option than the caretaker if we don't call them out.
