How to save £1.599161 million

That's how much the Welsh Assembly spends on... chairs!
I came across an information request on the Assembly's website in which Plaid's Owen John Thomas asks for details about the companies bidding to provide leather for the chairs in the chamber.
As you can see, the Assembly is a swanky new building and the chairs are in no way uncomfortable.
But £1.6 million to pad a politician's backside?
They could've gone to ikea and bought some sexy looking 'snille' chairs for just £13.99. The blurb says, "ideal for occasional use or shorter sitting purposes". Perfect for AMs who can't sit still for more than ten minutes.
