Councils - Enemies of The People!

As loyal readers know, this site has a particular "fondess" for local councils and how they seek to interfere in the minutiae of our lives.

I was therefore pleased to see that last year Eric Pickles, the Communities Secretary, ordered councils to publish details of high-earning staff and any spending of more than £500.

I was less than gemused, but not surprised, to see that many councils have stuck two fingers up to this request, and have claimed that they have so many well-paid staff that the cost of listing them and their responsibilities would be prohibitive.

In other words, if they are to be believed, these recalcitrant councils do not know who they employ or how much they cost!

Other councils wimped out of the request by claiming that taxpayers don't have the “evaluation skills” to decide whether spending was good value for money, and that we would "misunderstand" the expenditure; ie they don't want us to know how they spend OUR money!

As noted many times before on this site, councils are the enemies of the people!

    Nice one Ken

    councils are shit

    my local town council does nothing, not even support the town, but glories in the (laughable) status and prestige

    they should request the same of the NHS - that bohemoth of the public sector, full of little hitlers, who demand our attention but ignore our humanity

    Those who refuse to cooperate by identifying such staff, should be named and shamed, then those refusing should be sacked on the spot, with no pay, compensation nor pension.
