Councillors in Chutney on the Fritz have met, at tax-payers expense to discuss the possibility of organising another meeting about the number of meetings they have.
Councillor Money-Tree told us, ‘Yes, it is true. Whilst most normal people would have done this in terms of an email, or a quiet pint down the King’s Left Elbow, we wanted to hire out a big building for a couple of hours, pay staff to clean it, and wear out the Council’s light bulbs, you know the special type that cost £80.00 for four, and a further £20.00 to pay some-one to replace them, because as politicians and councillors, we are too important to do these things ourselves. That’s without even thinking about the biscuits. The biscuit budget has been so massive this year, that we had to seriously think about buying luxury hob-nobs, or closing down the playground on the new estate’.
Councillor Smith (Dave to his best mates) in his yellow trousers replied: ‘Yes, these are all important issues, but most of who become councillors do it to get out of the house in the evening, so the more meetings we can have, the happier home-life we can have. After all, we do have to think about the important councillor businesses some-times, don’t we?’
