Now that the Tories have swept to power in Councils even in the North, I would expect them to at least be a little bit sensible in the interim and certainly not say or so stupid things. However, it appears this is not the case in Lancashire.
According the Lancashire Telegraph the Tories are going to have a logo change for the Council. This is because the current logo doesn't look like a traditional Lancashire Tudor rose, but instead looks like a Labour Party rose.
Now, don't get me wrong here, as the picture to the right shows, the logo really does look like a Labour rose, but seriously, is this is a decent use of taxpayer money? Of course it bloody isn't.
According to the new Council leader Geoff Driver, "It will soon be gone but we will not spend a fortune to change it everywhere, just on things like stationery and on the website." So that's about £20,000 then. Hilariously though, the fool of a Council leader then told the paper,
"Unlike Labour, who thought it was of great importance, we do not think the people of Lancashire care about logos, but they do care about our services."Hang on a second, if you think that people don't care about logo why are you changing it? God give me strength!
