Free dinners for councillors - Gurnshire has spoken!

No doubt about that one. A chance now exists for Sandy, Liz, Graham and Laurie to show solidarity with the credit-crunched council tax payers of Nairnshire in simply stating that they will no longer accept free dinners at Glenurquhart Rd when they attend council meetings. It would be a small step in financial terms but it would show a significant lead in other ways and voters would remember them for it.

I don't think it's common for any big company to provide routine lunch perks for staff.

Don't the councillors get perks enough? Why is it everyone else who is expected to suffer cuts?

Two words: Packed lunch!

And also - stop setting up meetings that keep dragging councillors all across the Highlands - for example, setting up a consultation on the A96 Corridor - in Wick!!
