But more to the point they may be wondering how Eric Pickles allows RBK&C to totally ignore his directives. Let's us remind ourselves what they are..
- Use reserves to save cutbacks to essential services-RBKC with £170 million ignores him
- Scrap council newspapers-RBKC continues to spend over £500,000 on the rag that nobody reads
- Chief executives should reduce salaries by 10%-ours costs US £280,000 a year and sneers at that idea
- Councillors should reduce their allowances-RBKC are at the top of the quartile
- Councillors should not 'double job'-Cllrs Cockell, Ritchie and Moylan are getting rich doing just that.
