A fairer way of judging our district council

EDITOR – Last week you asked us if we thought our council is offering ‘value for money’.

When the media quote the Prime Minister’s salary of £142,500 why is it that it’s never explained that this does NOT include all the free housing, travel and very generous expenses.

In London I’m sure the real value of these allowances and expenses will be extensive.

A more balanced viewpoint of how the ELDC has performed as against other district councils would surely be fairer.

Let’s first look at what they are supposed to do – as laid down nationally and what can be MEASURED rather than a purely political agenda.
