A girl likes a nice bunch of flowers in the house, but even still, a lady avoids extravagance. Not so the Stormont gang who spent over £50,000 on fresh flowers since suspension.Sammy Wilson likes them though, he is quoted as saying that ‘the displays were an indication of the ‘vibrancy’ of the building.’ I dont remember the episode personally, but I understand Sammy would be familiar with vibrancy issues?
In any case, under FOI we also learn that almost £300,000 has been paid to contractors, Mount Charles Catering Ltd, who are responsible for cleaning the Assembly’s premises.
Miss Fitz is a bit jealous. I clean my own house and spend about a fiver a week on wilted flowers from Lidl. But then, I dont work as hard as your average Assembly person I guess.
