    The muppets we employ! We might well laugh at this (and it is funny) but it is symptomatic of the real problems we have in local government.

    This has cost money. Someone has sanctioned this, but as it isn't their money they don't care, neither did the muppets who carried out the work.

    In the past I've looked into waste within local councils, and believe me, most could easily halve their council tax bills if they got their act together.

    Sorry Lex, didn't mean to hijack your amusement.

    I did have thoughts along the same lines, but they were overridden by my laughing fit!

    It does look a touch unpalatable doesn't it?

    Mind you, as the guy says, no-one has ever gotten ill eating it! - Though how he can actually assert that I don't know

    I think I'll draw the line at stilton - tad moldy, but basically doesn't do you any harm (unless you've got a major penicillin allergy!)
