Paintings from David Parsons' office go on show to public

The Leicester Mercury points out another bonus of David Parsons' resignation as leader of the Conservative-run Leicestershire County Council:
Paintings worth hundreds of thousands of pounds which decorated the office of former council leader David Parsons are to go on wider public display. 
Three works of art that were hanging on the walls of the suite of offices at County Hall have been taken down as part of a refurbishment that follows Coun Parsons’s resignation as leader last month.
Parsons created his offices in 2009. In total, £64,000 was spent on them and as the Mercury reminds us, the expense was widely condemned at the time.

Meanwhile, local gossip has it that his house is up for sale.
