Education minister Sarah Teather is under investigation by her own council after she erected a giant yellow sign outside her new office — without planning permission.
A local resident told the Brent & Kilburn times that Teather that Teather was riding roughshod over planning regulations which the rest of us are obligated to follow, adding: “Just down the road at 5 High Road, Barclays Bank had to apply for permission for its illuminated signs.”
Office is a historic source of trouble for the diminutive MP. Before the last general election, Political Scrapbook exposed Teather for charging her Liberal Democrat campaign office to taxpayers along with £1,700 of furniture, insurance and telephone bills.
No doubt we’re footing the bill for that sign too.
