The Dame has heard the most bizarre of stories.Certain senior Conservative councillors have been doing some 'thinking outside the box'(yes, difficult to believe) in an effort to see how they can encourage Pooter Cockell to 'move on'.
The issue they have identified is money. Evidently Pooter, not having made money in the private sector is extremely reluctant to be dislodged from his £130,000 a year non performance related sinecure.
What was the result of the brainstorming? Yes, you guessed it: headhunters.
|Pooter Job Hunting|
Cllr F. Buxton is one; and Oirish Ahern was married to one. Both have agreed to submit Pooter's cv to see if there any suitable jobs for a man of his 'talents and experience.' One idea floated was that his West African fag selling experience might be useful to former 'bad boy' resident, Ely Calil.
Evidently they are not unknown to each other and a lucrative 'roving ambassadorial role' for the Calil empire could be on the cards.
So readers, if that one does not play out, what ideas do you have so Pooter can slip into the private sunset? And no...Cllr Palmer, he does not need your career advisory service...
