A council having to cut back on basic services might think it indelicate to spend thousands of pounds on a lavish opening of a road; one which has already cost taxpayers nearly £30 millions. But not so these two whose lifestyles are so generously funded by us poor taxpayers.
Sadly our two jumped up local councillors don't see life quite like that. Puffed up with their own self importance they ordered the best of everything at the Exhibition Road opening yesterday.
Young boy waiters glided around the spacious halls of Imperial College feeding 100 plus or so freeloading guzzlers with fine champagne and foie gras canapes.
And certain of our councillors seem to have a more than a passing interest in some of the young catering staff......par for the course, one supposes. We have rather a poor record when it comes to cllrs and an interest in youngish boys....
The Dame has been told that nearly £8,000 was wasted on catering. And it gets worse...the Welsh Guards band cost £4,000 and the teams of Presidential security a further £3,000 and the vast number of marshals £6,000.
