Where your money goes - Dutch division

From Radio Netherlands:

"...a controversial Socialist Party policy has been introduced by the council in Groningen in the north of the Netherlands. People on low incomes in the Groningen area will now be eligible to receive flatscreen televisions paid for by the council.

The councillors apparently believe that everyone, including minimum earners, should be able to buy flatscreen TVs. They decided grants available to the poor to replace television sets should rise from the present 170 euros to no less than 450 euros".

I make that just over £350, and a nameless online retailer in these parts will sell a famous name 32" LCD for that.

If someone else is paying, I'm having filet mignon.

I'll take the telly, but it might get onto eBay pretty quickly.

How long before this council runs out of money? Do they get free TV licences to go with the flatscreen?
