Fire chief charges taxpayer £20,000 to move home

- and it's not even to the county where he works.

A fire chief charged taxpayers almost £20,000 in decoration and removal costs – while planning cuts to frontline services. The public cash helped David Johnson move to the county of Suffolk, even though he heads the Essex brigade.

The fire chief and his senior colleagues clocked up tens of thousands of pounds in other expenses – including billing taxpayers for gentlemen’s clubs, lavish hotels and lobster dinners. Mr Johnson’s moving costs included £3,704.60 for new carpets, £3,466.93 for floor tiles and £324 for Laura Ashley curtains.

My comment: Another public official burning taxpayer's money.
