I AM driven to complain at the grossly immature attitude displayed by the council in the presentation of its financial data with my council tax bill.

As a semi-intelligent individual I find the use of quasi-washing machine instructions quite pathetic. Whilst I only hold an O-

Level in maths, even I am able to assimilate data presented in table format or accounting style.

To resort to such gimmicky measures with the inclusion of false symbology and directions, at great cost to the council any myself, is offensive to the intelligence of your adult audience.

Please rethink this strategy for future communications before you lose all credibility as servants of the public.
