I'm quite happy in my burrow tbh. It's nice and warm and I don't have to keep moving it to get water and empty the

To be honest, I wouldn't be surprised at anything the local councillors spout as they are, in the main, a
rather 'mixed' ) bunch. You have to be careful to be sure which council it was though, as you have alluded
to in your other post. We have Craven District Council (for whom I have the honour of serving on their
Independent Remuneration Committee, and they weren't keen on the fact that we recommended a reduction in
their expenses recently to show solidarity with council employees and local businessmen who are losing
their jobs and struggling to remain in business) and Skipton Town Council (a lesser body that has some
councillors in common with CDC). CDC is basically governed by the Conservative group with some
independents, and Lib-Dems making up the numbers.
