All animals are equal but some are more equal than others.

Despite the vote of the last Council not to give councillors an allowance raise this year the Tory Administration is tonight proposing a scheme which would double the salary of the cabinet members and give the Leader £54,227 p.a. plus her basic allowance of £10,474 This is outrageous, immoral and unethical at a time when the Leaders of all three major political parties continuallly warn us of the need to cut back. Indeed Cllr Hillan reiterated to the JCCT meeting with the Unions last night that massive budget savings had to be made. Not by her or her Cabinet obviously.
This is a totally unjustified and cynical rise which will cost Barnet an extra £41,000 in a full year.
If the Tory Party vote it through tonight they will show total moral and ethical bankruptcy. I hope that good sense will prevail and they will vote it down.
