The Hootsman reports:
"The free lunches for councillors were originally scrapped in a bid to save £45,000 a year.
After the honesty box was launched, it is understood that staff regularly found it to be left short at the end of the day."
Sorry, "regularly found short"? You mean the thieving bastards couldn't even cope with £1.50 for a piece, or £1 for soup?
And this is when they can claim £45 a day in meals allowance when they are eating away from the council buildings!
If they can't be honest with their own money, what are the chances of them being honest with mine?
Hang 'em high!
