Still there, hanging onto their expenses. But the excuses..... Medication!!! I bet they drive to their meetings....

National BBC news. This is how our locally elected officials represent us and the County. The tip of the ice berg, no doubt.

Yes, really boring! The meeting was discussing an Ofsted Report about why the Children Services Dept, that they are in charge of, had too many children being left in situations of risk of significant harm for too long. Maybe these dangers included the people in charge falling asleep on the job? The Ofsted report had "serious concerns" about the services' senior leadership team. This is the Council's leadership team! The ELECTED leadership team! These people are ELECTED to attend these 'boring' meetings and they each claim tens of thousands of pounds of expenses and allowances for doing so. [external link]

I'm sure everyone's fallen asleep at a meeting once or twice.
