Is Lincoln Imp in a wheelchair too cheeky…? You decide.
One of the all-night wheelchair protesters against trebling of home care charges has launched his own blog called Careless-Council.
Richard Van der Fransen reveals on his site how his amusing alterations to Lincolnshire County Council’s new logo didn’t go down too well with a council press officer.
I thought it was rather imaginative to put our Lincoln Imp in a wheelchair.
Here’s the original logo and Richard’s version.
Too cheeky? Judge for yourself.
By the way, one of the logos you see cost us Lincolnshire ratepayers £40,000.
The other one didn't cost us a bean.
(Richard and a colleague Brian Steel camped for 24 hours outside County Hall in Lincoln to protest against the prospect of their home care charges being raised from £40 a week to £120 story HERE).
