Scilly Spring: Dictator Raiding the Cash Reserves
DfE Investigation Under-way

Guido understands the Department for Education inquiry into the Scilly school scandal is gathering pace and there will be “boots on the ground” shortly. The revolution that is rocking the South West is progressing nicely, with the locally loathed tin pot dictator/council chief executive Philip Hygate forced onto the airwaves this morning to deny he is overseeing a “climate of fear” on these once pleasant archipelago. His defence for why he should remain in his jobs was laughable. Jobs that is, not job – he’s also the checks and balances arm of the council. As monitoring officer,  Hygate gets to investigate the numerous complaints about himself. Apparently the job is “a burden” and yet he felt by carrying out the role himself he was saving the council money. His concern for saving cash wasn’t quite so evident when he rammed through a 20% pay rise last year.

Just as Gaddafi told his people: “I am not going to leave this land. I will die as a martyr at the end. I shall remain, defiant”, Hygate is digging in. We all know how it went for the Colonel, though at this rate Hygate will be facing cuffs rather than a bullet.

In a new development tonight, in what is the local government equivalent of fleeing across the border to Niger with a truck full of gold, the embattled chief exec is demanding £40,000 for the 100 days of unclaimed holiday that he’s been building up for years as something of a rainy day fund. The rules state that a maximum of 5 days can be accrued. Councillors will vote on the matter at 6pm tonight. That would be nice stash to fall back on were he forced to flee to the mainland… 

Read the whole saga that Guido broke in May, leaving the BBC, Guardian and Telegraph chasing, here.

The Donald asks what America wants from a President…

“I spent less, I won the most. Isn’t that what you want from your President for a little time?”
