"TAXPAYERS are paying more than £10,000 to keep their top council bosses talking, writes Tristan Stewart-Robertson. Inverclyde Council runs a staggering 977 mobile phones to make sure everything runs smoothly in the area, according to new data revealed under a Freedom of Information (FOI) request."
