17 March (Part 2) - Snouts ever deeper in the trough

The Taxpayers’ Alliance has today published its updated ‘Town Hall Rich List’ and I reproduce part of the Bexley section below. Remember these people are not the best; if they were we might not have the spectacle of Tuckley in headless chicken mode over one man with a video camera and we might not have the Innovation Centre leeching money because their business plan was poor and they couldn’t manage themselves out of a paper bag. And don’t forget the needy getting a raw deal all over town. None of our over-paid executives would survive five minutes in a tough commercial environment, that is why such poor specimens gravitate to local authority sinecures.

Will Tuckley, Chief Executive -  £242,363, a 9.3% increase over the year before
Deborah Absalom, Director of Children’s and Young People’s Services - £210,998, a 5.2% increase over the year before
Peter Ellershaw, Director of Environment and Regeneration Services - £210,818, an 11.9% increase over the year before
Mark Charters, Director of Social and Community Services - £170,072, a 3.4% increase over the year before
Paul Moore, Director of Customer Services - £140,629
Mike Ellsmore, Director of Finance - £136,063
Andrew Cresswell, Assistant Chief Executive - £121,761, a 6.6% increase over the year before
Akin Alabi, Deputy Director Legal Services - £105,315, a staggering 27.5% increase over his predecessor in the year before
David Berry, Deputy Chief Executive & Director of Finance & Business Services - £210,296. (No longer with Bexley council)

…and seven more on more than £100,000

About 50% greater expenditure than the cuts being inflicted on disabled children.
