Normally my prestigious Prat of the Week Award goes to an individual.
However, I am prepared to make an exception in this case and make a multiple award to Brighton and Hove council.
They are currently insisting that a dead man give notice of his intention to leave sheltered accommodation.
Frank Gajewski died the other week, but his family must keep paying rent, despite clearing the property so that somebody else could use it.
A four-week notice period "is a legal requirement", explained a council spokesman.
Have you noticed how councils seem to only employ narrow minded, braindead, jobsworth bureaucrats?
Well done lads, you are Prats of the Week!
