The view from Mrs Cadaver's office window is a little grave

Results in from the 2008 local elections have revealed that Rita Cadaver, a Penge Liberal Democrat councillor who passed away in 2006, has today been elected to the council.

She won with an unhealthy majority of 687, beating her nearest rival from the Conservatives.

Speaking as the results of her victory were announced by an excited radio presented from BBC Radio Bromley, she didn't say much, namely because of her deceased state.

Mrs Cadaver has been very unusual amongst local councillors because of her excellent value for money council record. Since her death in 2006, she hasn't reclaimed one penny in expenses, neither has she claimed attendance expenses or placed family members in position of work where they go off to university and do nothing.

Incoming leader of the Council, Kevin Nicebutdim says:

"While Mrs Cadaver hasn't contributed to as many debates as we would have liked over the past couple of years, we must nevertheless thank her for her selfless devotion to the people of Penge.

"We are sure her trendsetting attitude to expenses could be repeated throughout the country, saving the government a fortune and helping to reduce Council Tax."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
