An alien conception

HAVING READ about local government quangos in last week’s Observer, where West Sussex County Council have appointed a woodfuel development officer at £33,000 pa, that sum would only be the tip of the proverbial iceberg.

Thousands more will be paid for his expenses, the use of a PA, holiday or sickness cover, etc, plus a huge pension pot on retirement.

If UFOs are seen above Chichester, as have been seen elsewhere, maybe a UFO information officer will also be appointed at a further £33,000 plus.
