Cost of Council Websites

Central Beds Council seem to be spending money on unnecessary software to check web links. 
With regard to website costs, http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/costs_of_council_website_23#incoming-345150  one of the items in the list refers to costs of web site link checking software. Not sure if this will help on budget costs, but I have used a free link checking programme called Xenu for years and that can produce very exhaustive link check reports, as I have indeed provided to Beds Library Service this year.

The Political Police Commissioner

The decision of the new PCC, Olly Martins, to appoint 2 people to advise him who both happen to be Labour Party cohorts, stinks.
The position should never have been political in the first place. Martins has not advertised the posts, he has given them to people who are in the Labour Party.

A Smile For Nadine

From the start of "jungle" I've been in the "Good Luck to Her" camp.
So I found this very amusing this morning.
