Prats of The Week - Shropshire Council

'Tis a Monday morning and it has been absolutely yonks since I have awarded anyone my prestigious and internationally renowned Prats of The Week Award.

Therefore without further ado let me award it this week to Shropshire council.

For why?

For the their decision to spend £362K on iPads over the last few years despite the fact that they are axing 1,700 jobs.

A Freedom of Information request shows 63 of 75 elected councillors in Shropshire have iPads and 49 were given them on top of other devices.

The council claim that the iPads improved their productivity, and have saved the taxpayers £20K on pens and paper!

Shropshire council, well deserving Prats of The Week!

    I am certain that those who are losing their jobs will be overjoyed to know about this expenditure! If the councillors really need these devices, I see no reason why the taxpayers of Shropshire should pick up the tab: they should buy them out of their own money!

  2. Anonymous6:39 PM, indeed, LoA, I'd be expected to do being a mere private sector worker with the justification that I'd be more efficient and that it's my responsibility to be as efficient as possible.

    I'd apply for a public sector job except I wouldn't be able to stomach the PC s**te for more than a day - in the private sector I only have to pretend now and then. I make litle distinction between officials and elected members other than to recognise that elected members have to pretend to give a shit about my concerns whereas officials simply exhibit the drone-like mentality that either draws them to the job in the first place or which overwhelms them as a survival strategem.
