I've had clients visiting this week, so we had to put them up in a nice local hotel - the Village, in Farnborough... Imagine my surprise, on picking them up there yesterday morning and milling round the lobby with a Venti mocha, to see a cluster of CS95 wandering round, having breakfast etc. Proper staff h'officer grade with briefcases, files and paperwork in abundance. Now, booking into this place for a midweek stay cost my company Â£130 per night per room. how on earth can we justify this? In Farnborough FFS! theres more barracks and officers messes within five miles of here than you can shake a very shitty stick at and we're putting people in plush, expensive hotels. We can complain all we like about MOD pissing money up the wall on Â£100 office chairs, but when the army is leaking money like a sieve on hotels just down the road from "The home of the British Army" then someone needs a good shaking!
