Dear Rotherham Politics readers,
Well, well, well, remember that old saying: “turns up just like a bad penny?” …
Well that very same phrase went fleetingly through my mind when I read this –
I guess when you’re the Champayne Commissar to the Corn Fed Grunters, Muppets and Clowns, twitter-twatter-fluttering about riding around in a Porsche, dining here, dining there, on this-that-or-t’other yacht at somesuch marina that £1.9 Million quid ain’t much at all …
However, if like me you’re a citizen of modest means, who’s experiencing the harsh chill rigours of a double whammy ConDom Government slash-n-burn reduction in services, compounded by spendthrift elderly male-dominated junketing-mad paid-higher-than-SCC RMBC Corn Fed Grunters, Muppets and Clowns, then £1.9 Million quid is a serious load of ackers.
And who made this patronisingly dismissive foot-stamping statement, why none other than our Tory toff dell-boy turned Rovrum Laybah comrade than Catcliffe Parish Council chairman Cllr Darren Hughes.
Small wonder then that good old canny old Rt Hon Clive Betts, MP, gave our new-found sewshalleest champayne commissar da middle digit. Nice one, Clive.
