By Giuseppe De Santis -Local papers continuously report stories about councils making cuts and local politicians are always ready to blame the coalition for their unpopular decision.

But how much money are local authorities wasting every year?

Below we can reveal the amount of money that some local authorities wasted on interpreters and translation in the last financial year; we have got those figures by making Freedom of Information requests.

Nationalists should take note as not one of our useless MSM will ever report this.

Redbridge - £ 89,242

Slough - £ 54,606

It's interesting to see how Glasgow is the local authority that spent the most on interpreters and translations, followed by Haringey, Leicester and Cardiff.

Maybe it's time that someone started to question local politicians about this unacceptable waste of money.
