Sitting comfortably

First published in Letters by

WHEN council tax bills go up, as they undoubtedly will, I am sure it will be of great comfort to us all to know council staff in their nice shiny offices will be sitting comfortably on their wonderful, brand new, fully adjustable chairs (The Press, January 5).

Presumably they will have a choice too, as there will be 1,067 more chairs than bums to go on them, and a “one seat per person arrangement” is not possible.

Incidentally, how does a desk or chair become unfit for purpose, unless a leg falls off?

I can't even find a scrap value for it!
