We’ll cut council ‘fat cat’ pay, vows UKIP at launch of Carlisle elections campaign
Last updated at 13:25, Wednesday, 18 April 2012
The UK Independence Party is pledging to cut the “fat-cat” pay of council officials.
Have your say
I'm starting to get a bit fed-up of reading posts accusing A of being a councillor, B of being a councillor and 'attack posts'. They are not conducive to the smooth running of the boards or considered debate.Therefore, from now
1. ANY posts deemed to be an attack on an individual will not be released. No editing will take place.
2. ANY posts that claim or suggest a contributor is a councillor will not be released.
3. ANY posts submitted by anyone WE suspect of being a councillor will not be released. We hope any councillors who participate here will use their real names and not hide behind the veil of anonymity.The terms for commenting will be amended accordingly.Ian
For BM - http://www.ukip.org/media/pdf/UKIPlocalManifesto2012.pdf you can also check Facebook: UKIP Local Carlisle. It is the policy of UKIP to considerably reduce the allowances of ALL councillors and to do with the money exactly what you suggest. ie create new jobs. Hope this helps.
Thank you BM for enlightening Mr Owen anyone who thinks Â£100,000/annum plus expenses is not a lot of money should look at the salary for Prime minister and other cabinet salaries for comparison. I am no lover of any political party since Tony Blairs coup in 1994 but we do need to stop thinking Â£8400/month isn't a HUGE salary!
