Councillor defends public's cash in his personal account

ALMOST £5,000 of public money was paid into a councillor’s personal bank account to avoid a ‘misunderstanding’ in the Muslim community.

Bedford Borough Councillor Mohammed Masud applied for funding from the Sustainable Communities Fund from the North Bedfordshire Community Safety Partnership.

The partnership made an exception to pay the cash into Cllr Masud’s account to avoid any suggestion one Mosque was being favoured over another despite the councillor being the chairman of Westbourne Road Mosque in Queens Park.

My comment: Don't you just love the official reason. To avoid any suggestion that one Mosque is being favoured over another they pay the money into the private bank account of the chair of just one Mosque. You just know a council is involved when you hear crap like this.
