No wonder Tenerife is in the $hite!

  • Talk about wasting money.  The Island has 31 autonomous regions each with it's own Town Hall , Mayor, and a pile of civil servants pushing paper (very slowly as anyone who has had dealings with them will know).  All this with less than a million inhabitants and an area 2/3 the size of Lancashire, which also has 50% more people.

    I'm sure the Island could be run with just 3 regional councils and do we REALLY need 2 airports?

    What do you think.

  • There is talk in one of the local free newspapers about combining all the police forces on the island, which would make a lot of sense.  I guess the multiplicity of regions dates back to the days when there was little more than donkey tracks between communities, so it would seem appropriate to review the situation in view of the vastly improved communications today.  One Council with one budget could mean more money available to improve the lot of the poorer regions, such as Santiago, at the expense of the more affluent ones, such as Arona.
