“What on Earth?”

Share this article

What on earth are the District Council up to, imagine approving an eight per cent plus allowance rise in the present economic climate. The cuts and the inflation and cost of living, the freezing of some benefits and wages are just beginning to bite.

Do the councillors really believe they are that important, and doing such brilliant jobs that they deserve an increase? I am excluding the Independents and Liberal Democrats from this criticism because they voted against it, and probably some of the Tory councillors did also, all credit to them.

Do people realise that certain councillors with the added on extra “special” responsibilities allowances and other bits and pieces can “earn” more than a refuse collector.
