Kent County Council staff earning over £100,000 per year doubles in a year

I noticed this on the Thanet Extra website click on the link to read the article, http://www.thanetextra.co.uk/kol08/article/default.asp?article_id=60055 I don’t see how these sums can possibly be justified.

I looked on the taxpayers alliance website click on the link for it http://www.taxpayersalliance.com/waste/2009/04/council-spending-uncovered-ii-no-4-town-hall-rich-list-2009-.html and noticed that Thanet District Council refused to answer the survey.

I have to admit that I have had considerable difficulty getting coherent answers out of either council, when civil servants are earning these colossal sums and supported by a large staff one would expect to get straightforward answers to simple questions in a timely manner.

  1. Very interesting that Thanet has refused to answer - would the information be so very bad? Not only local authorities need to be brought to book local Primary Care Trusts seem to have a Director for anything and everything and salaries just as high.

  3. But Primary Care Trusts are both useful and accountable

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
