A Labour council has been accused of “greed” after giving its cabinet a 45 per cent pay rise.
Westminster City Council’s six cabinet members will see their yearly allowance rise from £11,733 to £17,008, a rise of 44.96 per cent — ten times the hike that the council’s employees will receive.
The boost comes just ten months after the council switched control from the Conservatives to Labour for the first time in 58 years.
Gosh. So it’s the Tories who always grasp the taxpayers’ money, right?
