Prats of The Week - Durham County Council
This week it goes to Durham County Council for its bizarre practice of paying a £12K clothing allowance a year in total to its chairwoman and vice chairwoman.
Despite this not being the norm for other councils, and despite being roundly criticised for its profligacy, Durham refuses to axe the allowance.
However, so as to make ends meet, the council is cutting its budget by £200M over the next 5 years and axing 1,600 jobs.
Nice to see that it has got its priorities right!
I dare say it will cover the costs by increasing council tax.
Durham County council, well deserving Prats of The Week!
