Wiltshire taxpayers fund council chiefs’ luxury hotel stays

TOP bosses at Wiltshire Council spent thousands of pounds on luxury hotels, flights and a private members club using a credit card funded by the taxpayer.

The figures have been released for the first time by the council after a Government ruling to make local authorities more transparent about how they spend public money.

Chief executive Andrew Kerr has enjoyed a £135-per-month membership of the Royal Overseas League, which has a private clubhouse in London just 400 metres from Buckingham Palace. The total bill for his private membership came to £936.85.

My comment: Why the hell are taxpayers picking up the bill for Wiltshire Councils CEO to be a member of the Royal Overseas League?
