Council credit cards are in the news thanks to the Telegraph exposee. But how many of us knew that Moylan and Cockell had personal council credit cards to allow them to 'entertain' on the tax?
It is something quite exceptional in local government circles for councillors to be have access to cards.
The only exception the Dame can think of is ex Leader of Essex County Council, 'Lord' Hanningfield. His card proved his nemesis as it allowed the prosecution to highlight it's fraudulent use.
Anyway, as he heads to to the slammer he won't have much need of it.
