What’s this curious spreadsheet all about that’s arrived in The BRISTOLIAN‘s inbox?
Why, it’s only the foreign travel expenses for that formidable Green Party anti-car campaigner and supposed environmen- talist SIR GUS HOYTY-TOYTY.
Clearly the Cabinet member for hot air and gaffes has taken the austerity message to heart and confined himself to just the SIX European trips at our expense between April and September 2013 and he’s only taken a plane TWICE.
Total cost to the council taxpayer for these jollies is a mere £2,135 in travel costs (excluding accommodation) and he’s burned around 550 kilos of carbon.
Can there be any doubt Sir Gus’s vital international environmental and humanitarian work to save our children’s futures more than justifies these planet-wrecking plane trips?
And no way does he look like a big fat gormless buffoon…
