how much does an independent alliance councillor cost the taxpayer?

It seems that despite councillors Jane and Allan Branley’s refusal to claim allowances and expenses their Indy Alliance colleagues have claimed £41,162. 

Mr Monkey was surprised to learn that councillor Victor Thompson has followed the example of the other Westoe councillors and has not claimed his allowance – well done councillor Thompson. 

When Mr Monkey applied his how much do they cost the taxpayer test to the Indy Alliance the results show that they are the group that costs the taxpayer the least. 

Judging by the figures it seems that the Indy Alliance are the only group who haven’t sold their souls to Miss Piggy for 30 pieces of silver and can legitimately claim to not to have been bought. 

But will they be able to resist the lure of gold in 2009?

What are the 4 musketeers plotting?

What are they plotting?

What are they plotting?

Last Tuesday Mr Monkey saw South Tyneside’s very own 4 musketeers in a local watering hole and judging by their body language they were plotting something.

The Whiteleas Sex Machine, councilor Ernest ‘Shrek’ Gibson, David ‘Birdman’ MacLean, Scott Duffy, aka Penfold and Indy councillor John Hodgson, aka the Phantom were huddled together in deep conversation. They were very self conscious of  who or what might be listening , especially Birdman MacLean whose eyes were everywhere.

Mr Monkey overheard snippets of their conversation and it seems they’re planning to suprise someone.

This chimp reckons that this strange alliance of misfits may not go down too well in certain quarters but he hopes he’s around when they do spring their surprise on this unsuspecting individual.

Will He .. Won’t He!

Speculation is rife that Steady ‘hic Eddie McAtominey the disgraced Labour councillor convicted of drink driving is planning to make an appearance at today’s Full Council meeting.

Mr Monkey has been told that Miss Piggy aka Iain Malcolm is desperate to keep him out of the chamber for fear of an all out assualt led by the Indy Alliance.

Councillor Malcolm has been shitting himself for days at the prospect of councillors Jane and Allan Branley, White, Hodgson and Khan in attack mode. Mr Monkey reckons that today’s gathering will be a rowdy affair.
