Council taking the Michael
Started by: fireplace6899 (10440)  Report abuse
Three new ‘lead member’ posts have been created, Couns Joanne Marshall, Nazia Rehman and James Moodie, who will respectively cover the ‘Greener Wigan’, ‘community and family safety’ and ‘leisure and public health’ portfolios.

Each will be entitled to a £8,232 allowance on top of their basic councillor’s allowances award of £12,301.

Executive members already receive £28,930, with leader Lord Peter Smith on £58,902 and deputy leader Coun David Molyneux on £36,289.

Saw our Lord Smith at the North Western Station a couple of weeks ago, nipping down to London. No doubt he was just going to 'CLOCK IN' at the house of Lords to claim his £300 a day? Bet he went First Class too as it's all on expenses...

My good lady added the cost's at £20,535.x 3 =£ 61,605
£20,535 X 3 = £61,605 PER YEAR THEN INDIVIDUAL GET'S =

EACH CLOWN GETS £ 20,535 P ANNUM
WEEKLY INCOME £ 394,094 P WEEK

If you complain about the exorbitant pay they get and the demise of council services that could be accessed for free with the costs being covered by the council tax, the usual reply is - you still get your bins emptied, though I wonder how long it'll be before we'll be paying for them to emptied.
