According Pippa Crerar in the Standard London council bosses are creaming it in.....she writes that most London council bosses received pay, perks and pensions of £200,000 each.
It was no great surprise that the porcine looking Myers had pushed his peers out of the way in order to get next to the trough.
One of the great myths council bosses like to promulgate is that they have to be paid these vast sums of money-if not they would be poached by the private sector....as the Dame's vulgar nephew. Ludo, would say..."they got to be havin' a larf'....(yes, he tends to affects this dreadful way of speaking)
In fact, there has never been an instance of a council chief being poached by a private company...who would want one!
The Dame was talking to one well known City grandee resident who had this to say.....
"Since when has the private sector looked to Council chiefs to find "talent"? They are very skilled at spending"other peoples money" but would have no idea of how to generate income...spending money is what they are good for"
Councils claim they need to offer generous pay packages to attract the best talent from the private sector, but none of these people would get a comparable position in the private sector....least of all Myers-a social worker made very good....thanks to his equally over compensated mate, Prime Minister Pooter. One wonders if it's a case of back scratching...
Town halls across London spent almost £7 million on chief executive pay packages last year with some of the country’s poorest boroughs paying the biggest sums
