Highland Council pays £22,000 per day on consultants

We keep hearing there's no money but the Press and Journal has come up with some alarming statistics:

'Highland Council is spending almost £22,000 a day on consultants – £5,000 more than the average annual salary of workers in the region.
It spent £9.5million hiring outside experts over a 20-month period between April 2008 and November 2009 – the equivalent of £21,883 every working day.'

Five days worth of consultants would fix the Links School roof then? You'll get the full story on the Press and Jounal site.

If the average salary up here is £17k then I'm seriously missing out.
