Out of control Executive Pay

While Southampton’s Labour Council are putting libraries and swimming pools at risk and cutting bin collections to fortnightly they have increased those earning over £100,000 per year by nearly 40%.

Most other councils have cut the number of high earners but Labour controlled Southampton are one of the few local authorities to have increased them.

When I was leading the council we cut those at the top and protected frontline staff enabling us to maintain services to residents. Labour appear to have a different approach.

    I receive your hardcopy newsletter through my door and enjoy reading it. On the last one, which inevitably ended up in the recycling bin after being read, it asked residents to show their disapproval of the new bin collection arrangements. I want to do that here. Jacqui Rayment (who is a disgrace as leader for the Environment), makes the pathetic excuse that ‘over 70% of councils in the country have fortnightly collections.’. Well, if you’re a sheep Jacqui…

    I have had a baby recently. Before this, our waste was minimal because my husband and I worked full time and were not at home to create rubbish. Now, however, with nappies, and being at home more, this fortnightly collection will be horrible. As usual, this labour-conteolled council is moving backwards rather than forwards.
