KCC Election snippet

Whilst we’re all pondering just how greedy our politicians are in Westminster, spare a thought for County Councillors who’s allowances are modest in comparison.

And the party leaders in reverse order of amount received, 2008-9 Cllr Trudy Dean, the Liberal Democrat Leader just on the basic £12,000 and a modest £133 mileage, Cllr Mike Eddy Labour Leader on a trifling £42,895, no surprise for guessing that Tory Leader Cllr Paul Carter is on the most at £54,450.

Well if value for money was a consideration I would have to give my vote to the Liberal Dems, only problem is that they are quite thin on the ground in these parts.
