Highland Councillors 'feed their faces' at council-tax payers expense

The Inverness Courier writes again about the long-standing practice of Highland Councillors of feeding themselves at our expense, seemingly considering that their festive meals on us are theirs by right. Possibly it wouldn't matter so much if Highland Council wasn't so heavily-indebted and planning for service-cuts in certain much less essential areas (sic) of expenditure such as old people's day centres, schools, sports centres and libraries. It's not only at Westminster and at Holyrood that our elected officials need to remember who their masters are, the Councillors at Glenurquhart Road in Inverness need to be reminded of this, too!

  1. Bill,

    I found your blog by complete accident, and I couldn't agree more with your comment re our Councillors. Having recently witnessed at close hand, while working for a contractor, the waste and extravagance of spending by Highland Council, I thought I would comment. I'm not reffering to freebie meals, but to project overspends, inflating of departmental empires and on and on....

    Anyway, it's absolutely freezing here in Beauly. Keep the faith and keep warm :)

    And Merry Christmas.
