Rage_2This is a non-job special blog after being tipped off by a supporter for this job at Moray Council:

Can you contain the rage?  This is unbelievable.  Councils now engaging in planning and funding ‘street football’.  All you need for football is a few jumpers for goalposts and a ball.  You certainly don’t need a Town Hall lackey earning off the taxpayer to organise something that happens already without government interference.  It defies belief, it really does.


Feel free to politely inform the convenor of the council (i.e. leader of the council) Cllr George McIntyre of your displeasure by sending an email to convener@moray.gov.uk


Believe you me when I say this job is going in our non-job report in December.
