I note with (very little) interest the thoughts of the Conservative voice of (very little) political experience, Tom Ashton.
I look forward to his campaigning in 2013 for the county council or 2015, for the borough council when, I feel sure, the electorate will tell him exactly what they think of his liking for large pay increases for borough councillors.
The public are not fools. They will have noted Mr Ashton’s silence on this issue in the past, right up to the time the Conservatives would be the biggest beneficiary of such profligate distribution of their Council Tax.
It is, however, possible for members to forego any part of their differing allowances.
I am hoping that many of those select councillors awarded these latest 10 per cent + 10 per cent increases will choose to do so.
