An interview with Eric Pickles is proudly claimed as an 'Exclusive' in today's Independent on Sunday.
Very much larger than life, Pickles, achieved his over promotion because Dave and George felt the Cabinet needed a bit of North Country, working class straight talking. Instead what they got was an overweight wind bag, who everybody ignores.
We have examples in our very own Borough........
Pickles has been whining for ages that Council Chief Executives should reduce salaries to below the level of the Prime Minister's. So what reaction does it evoke from our very own, £250k a year Mr Myers? Basically.....'sod off Fatso and mind your own business.'
Myers made quite clear that his salary was no business of the Secretary of State.
Next, Pickles had a go at those living off the taxpayer, such as our very own Pooter.
Through double jobbing, Pooter grabs something near £140k a year. His arch enemy, Danny 'Boys' Moylan, a similar 'wedge'
Pickles made quite clear that he strongly objected to those 'double jobbing' and their fat SRA's.
Did our two local hero's listen? Of course not. And why would they? Pooter has school fees to pay and 'Boys' his house in Thailand to maintain.
