What is it with Councillors and night clubs? First we had the famous “Do You Know Who I Am” post on the Whiteleas and Parkway site, and now we have an instance of a certain councillor attempting to use his position to get on the guest list of a South Shields night club. The sad thing is, the entrance fee to the venue was only £1, all of the money going to a local charity. Councillors in South Tyneside receive over £6000 minimum in allowances, yet this cheap skate individual wanted to be admitted for free because he is a “councillor”.
Unlike the “Do You Know Who I Am” scenario, this time “We Know Who You Are”. If anybody wants to guess, send your answers on a postcard to “South Tyneside Standards Committee” c/o the Town Hall. That’s where I’m sending my views and comments.
