Salivating councillors

Some photographer at the Guardian deserves an award for that outstanding photo “Celebration cheer - Notts County Council elections” (Labour celebration at a return to power..., Worksop Guardian, May 10th, p. 4).

Looking at all the salivating going on in that photo, I can hear that famous American actor Jackie Gleason’s favourite punch-line “How sweet it is!” and wonder if, over the years, we’ve let our councillors create for themselves a much-too-sweet package of pay, perks and power.
