In an astounding confession Highland Council has admitted that it can’t cope with a bit of rain and homes and businesses will just have to flood. The kitty has been spent on consultations for a Soviet Era Berlin Wall to wreck the beautiful River Ness. The idea is to concrete the popular natural riverside to provide a space for drunks, druggies and graffiti vandals to make a mess. Naturally there is no money left for flood prevention, elderly care, disabled care or anything else that is really important.
The council leaders have told the populace “if you don’t have bread then eat cake” while they treat themselves to lavish canapes and wines in buffet lunches and parties – all at the expense of the local tax payer.
