Camden Council mugs

THE meannest critics of Camden Council argue there are far too many mugs at the Town Hall... but, ahaah, it turns out there aren’t enough.

Spies tell me that a coffee cup crisis is developing in the members room, mainly populated by ruling Labour councillors. Mugs have been disappearing left, right and centre and dozy councillors who can’t remember where they left them have been warned that there is no money to replace them. Council chiefs have been ordered to make do with disposable plastic cups instead.

They won’t get any prizes for being a green council like that.

  1. Can you believe we Councillors have been informed the mugs won’t be replaced and we’re to “make do” with the plastic water cups. But they’re simply not fit receptacles for boiling water. Pathetic!

    Given there’s only 54 of us, it’s not a lot to ask that we can make ourselves a cup of tea in a cup or mug to suffer those three hour plus DC Planning or Scrutiny meetings long into the night. Not a lot to ask IMO.

    There needs to be a “U-turn” pronto or there will be really revolting Councillors!

      ‘…suffer those three hour plus DC Planning or Scrutiny meetings..’ = you chose to be a cllr. knowing full well the obligations that go with being elected for your party. when cllrs. view meetings as ‘suffering/s’ …imagine the plight of employees !

    • May I send you some mugs? How many do you need?

        ….could you sort out the Andrex pls.= presently policy papers and officer recommendations are being used !

  2. Just curious, but aren’t disposable cups more expensive than proper mugs? I suppose it depends how quickly they get nicked…

    the irony – coffee not offered to residents, no mugs for the reps. and Housing wastes £2.88 million / yr. on TP !

  4. in a lot of jobs, people bring in their mugs from home… time of austerity and all that dontcha know.

    The question is; who’s nicking the mugs, in the first place? What is the identity of kleptomaniac councillor, with a penchant for china? Sounds like an investigation case for the Camden New Journal!

    If they don’t want to bring one in from home, perhaps they could use some of their councillor’s allowance to buy one.
