Two jobs will 'suit' him Which suit should he wear for the job? That's what Cardiff Central contracts committee was asking itself this afternoon when it was discussing the new chauffeur-cum-City Hall porter.
Councillor Jack Keohane objected to the man who is doing both jobs as deputy chauffeur and porter having two suits.
"Our porters look very smart and I can't see the difference." he said. "What's more this chauffeur's uniform is tailor-made and more expensive."
But Alderman Mrs Dorothy Lewis told the committee that the man of two suits would probably have to deputise dep´u`tise

It's the singer that counts It pays for a rock 'n' roll group to have a lead singer with that certain "something" - personality and bounce, on and off stage.
It's been proven over and over again in the modern music business from the top professionals to the hopeful amateurs.
So following the pattern of so many other successful combos, the "Southerners" - a well-known Cardiff outfit - are making sure the spotlight is on their fair-haired, good-looking singer Joey Escott.
His wiggling antics in front of a mike are as old as Presley's guitar - but who cares? The girls keep screaming for more ... and the money goes steadily into the pockets of the five-man group.
Joey has been singing since he was 17. He's now 20 years old, so by modern standards he's an old-timer.
We are doing pretty well so far says singer Joey.
