The Daily Express has picked up on the story that 47 Barnet Council employees have been paid more than £100,000 a year. This at a time of economic austerity and savage cuts to social services.
Barnet it supposedly a Tory Council, but last year spent six of seven million quid on 47 troughers. Sadly whilst they dole out cash to their mates, librarys have been cut, parking charges hiked and services slashed. Barnet Council say they need the money from parking fees to pay for a shortfall in the coffers. This is exposed by the Express article as a lie. They need it to pay for rich bosses to live the life of luxury at your expense. This blog has spent four years exposing this sort of waste. We were one of the first to raise the salary of executive and expose it. That was four years ago. The Barnet Tories didn't listen. Now that the national media has picked up on it, hopefully it will stop.
