The council has posted a ‘leadership’ video clip on YouTube in which officer Jonathan Smale describes the leader as a ringmaster, surrounded by clowns - one of whom is wearing a green jacket because he is environmentally aware! Watch it for yourself if you think I am making this up!
Mr Smale says clowns are prepared to take risks. Quite so. But not usually with £28 million of our money.
I don’t know whether to laugh or cry at such an absurd waste of public resources.
