A SCHOOL near Toledo, central Spain, has told parents to provide their children with bog roll. The primary school doesn’t have the “budget to cover such resources” and has asked parents to supply each child with six rolls apiece.  It is unclear whether bureaucrats have calculated how long they should last. 

“What next? Will be asked to provide chalks? A bottle of fuel? I’m very angry,” wrote one steaming parent on Facebook. Parents already have to pay for textbooks and food and opposition politicians have latched onto the issue pointing out that local officials have had a generous pay rise while working families are asked to scrounge around the back of their sofas for a few extra euros.
