HOLD THE PRESS!

Byline: By Matt Withers Wales on Sunday

Council press officers lead a luxurious life.

They sit bathing in asses' milk, having grapes peeled for them and occasionally moving to write a press release on a councillor opening a school fete, before leaving work bang on 5pm.

But is there a more pampered press officer in Wales than Gareth Watson, chief spin doctor at Denbighshire Council? Anybody who e-mailed him last week received an automatic response stating: 'I will be out of the office starting 03/01/2006 and will not return until 01/12/2020.'

If pay at Denbighshire Council in any way matches the holiday entitlement, they're a very generous employer.
