Not my idea of a tight ship...



The monthly propaganda sheet put out by Lincolnshire County Council claimed last March that the ship had never been tighter.

Oh yeah?

Why then has business travel by officers and elected members shot up by almost a million miles over the past two years.

As the Lincolnshire Echo pointed out, the annual miles covered by the council is equivalent of going to the moon and back - 15 times.

I invite Council Leader Martin Hill - or any of his top Tory team - to leave a comment here to explain to Lincolnshire council taxpayers what's gone wrong.

Maybe that's tight as in exceeding your rum ration.
