Just a quick note to point out that while I’ve been ranting and fuming about the collective fit of madness down at the Civic Centre, The Plastic Hippo as yet again nailed the situation perfectly. After council leader Mike ‘Blofeld’ Bird spent days justifying an increase in his allowance before u-turning on the idea, this clearly left the Labour group in a bit of a predicament. The result was bizarre. I’ve been banging on about this absurd series of events for a few days, but as usual, the two-tonne pink fella strips the thing to pieces in the most literate, eloquent manner.
If you do nothing else this weekend, read this article. It’s a killer.
