As some of you will remember I have occasionally referred to council officers by nicknames relating to their weekly pay, I mainly do this on occasions where I am publishing a dialogue with them where what they say doesn’t entirely make sense.
As the internet has a very long memory and I have a fairly high internet presence, it isn’t my objective to have something stupid they have said to come up when one googles their name years after the event.
KCC’s new chief Executive will be Katherine Kerswell she is currently chief executive of Northamptonshire County Council.
As her salary at KCC will be £197,000 per year, I couldn’t resist the honorific of 4k.
When I was a child back in 1950s my father was the manager of a bookshop, in those days bookshops were mostly staffed by highly educated and articulate women, many of whom were spinsters trying to live on what wasn’t a living wage.
I was often sent to these women’s homes to be looked after and became acutely aware of their poverty, so this is also a bit of a reflection on how women’s pay and jobs has changed in some cases over the years.
