Around The World.

Looks like we have the antics of another Councillor being quite properly exposed.

"A SCOTTISH councillor is at the centre of a £26,000 expenses row after claiming enough mileage in two years to have driven twice around the globe. North Lanarkshire councillor Charles Cefferty claimed back 54,000 miles in work-related car travel between April 2006 and April 2008, four times higher than any other member representing the same ward. Last year alone, Cefferty claimed mileage worth £16,000 – higher than his £15,000 salary – and thought to be the highest of any councillor in Scotland."

He doesn't look much like Fileas Fogg and another insight into the murky world of Lanarkshire politics, although he is an "Independent."
