Labour out for themselves

Labour councillors in the West London Borough of Hounslow last night voted themselves increases in Special Responsibility Allowances of as much as 56%. The Opposition Conservative Councillors said that such a large increase in the middle of a pandemic is a disgrace.The Allowances will be paid to 43 out of 60 councillors and will be backdated to 1st April 2020. The backdating alone will cost taxpayers £411,000.The councillors also voted to increase the Council Tax payable by Hounslow residents by 4.99%, the maximum increase allowed by law and well over the rate of inflation.

The mud they throw at Conservatives doesn’t stick to Consevatives but it sure sticks to them.
