2,295 Council Fat Cats on £100K plus

A RECORD 2,295 town hall employees are raking in six-figure salaries, a report reveals today. And 686 of them get paid more than the Prime Minister’s annual salary of £142,500.

The number of bosses pocketing more than £100,000 a year soared by 18 per cent in the past 12 months and 48 chiefs were paid over £250,000.

Highest earner was Phil Dolan, chief executive of South Somerset District Council, who walked away with a £569,000 taxpayer-funded package after retiring last year.

My comment: Isn't this what happened just before the banking collapse with their 'greed is good' mentality. Will we see a similar meltdown in Local Government?
