You don't object to my taking gen from the Daily Mail, do you? You didn't raise any objections to my quoting from Times Online or the FT.

Sector Treasury Services themselves are discreet about which councils they are advising, unlike Capita itself which crowed about landing the Neath contract for payment services. (The party site posted about that in January 2008.)

In particular, the former leader of Bridgend Council, Jeff Jones, who is now able to be both more open and more dispassionate about council governance, has some revelations.
