'The convener of Highland Council yesterday defended privacy laws which protect the anonymity of any serving councillor who owes the authority hundreds of pounds in unpaid council tax.'
More on this on the Press and Journal website.
What a kick in the teeth for the thousands of hard working folk who struggle to pay their council tax every month to know that someone who lifts a handsome wage for being a councillor can't even be bothered to use some of it to to pay off their debt. Wouldn't it be nice if someone had the bottle to name and shame this individual? Just take it out of the toe-rag's salary, as simple as that! If he or she wanted to complain then let them go to court over it, thus revealing their miserable identity to an enraged Highland public?
