Some people, eh?

A village council has been rocked by bitter disagreement over what they should “like” on Facebook – despite just 59 people following the page.

In a bizarre row reminiscent of a Vicar of Dibley sketch, the seemingly innocuous choices of what to “like” on the official Facebook page of Llangunnor Community Council in Carmarthenshire, West Wales, have led to a council wide spat.

The council “likes” a selection of local services, schools and council initiatives.

However the “liking” of a local equine centre proved particularly controversial with one councillor repeatedly shouting “I don’t even like horses” at a council meeting.

Other councillors disagreed with the choices and argued that they should all get a say in who the council endorses.

During a heated council meeting, local councillor Sandra Thomas, asked: “Why are only three councillors deciding what we as a council “like” on Facebook? We should all be involved.”

Then again, you can usually get an argument going in Wales merely by wondering whether water is wet or not.

    Crossing two threads, one of bad things about the internet is that the low cost of publication means that nonsense like this becomes “news”.

    Shouldn’t this be headed “The Welsh”? Where are your subs?

  3. Bloke in North Dorset

    This a well known phenomena. Councils nod through £50m because they really don’t understand what’s going on and have no concept of that amount of money and then spend months arguing over whether to spend £50 on a new swing.

  4. Where’s the mandatory allusion to sheep?

    It was left unsaid:
