Lancashire County Council Wins National Accolade

Lancashire County Council

has won a major accolade that will probably not appear on its website. It is awarded the prestigious 2018 Rotten Borough award

by Private Eye 

for the “Priorities in Order” section.

The citation reads

“Tory-led Lancashire County Council agreed to buy all councillors new iPhones at a cost of £38,000. They then voted to double bus fares for disabled passengers travelling during rush hour. The increase from 50p to £1 will raise £43,000 a year, the cost of the councillors’ new phones, plus £5,000 change”.

Smug faces might be seen at County Hall after this news. Smug Tory members with their posh iPhones, smug Labour members also with their posh new iPhones they didn’t refuse. We wait to read how many Labour members are still using their old models as a matter of principle.
