How to stop a junket, Free Press style



… just don't call it a junket!

Of course, everyone at the water cooler has heard the one about how many minutes it takes to read the London Free Press.

But not everyone at the cooler has heard this one: London city staff are building a playground for children in the Kipps Lane area and another for kids in Honduras.

The kicker? Sit down, now. It's for the children! Warm, fuzzy glow stuff, and all that. We don't need to tell you that the city is setting aside $25,000 of taxpayer dollars to cover any fundraising shortfalls for sending staff to Honduras, so we're not going to.
