Every year we taxpayers allow councillors to spend thousands of pounds entertaining the Borough's diplomatic corps. It's a real opportunity for a lot of nonentities to feel they are playing on the world stage. The problem is this.....
Whereas the first ranking embassies are based in Belgravia K&C tends to host the more-how can one politely put this-well, the one's not taken very seriously, or seriously corrupt.
Obviously, at this year's reception the Omani ambassador managed to have a private word about his requirements.
Or that would seem the case having READ this very strange tale in the Standard.
Time the Council stopped this nonsense and left entertaining diplomats to the FO.
