A Scottish Borders Council official has been disciplined for comparing a senior colleague to Peter Mandelson (see LGC, 17 April).

The Daily Telegraph (p9) reports that Susan Rae, an economic development officer with the council, has received a written warning after sending an email to staff in her capacity as a Unison rep. In the email she asked if the personnel director had taken a leaf out of Mr Mandelson's book of spin doctoring in trying to sell a flexitime package to council staff.
