Labour, looking after it's own. Again.

Cheers, suckers...


Glasgow City Council have given it's former head of education, Margaret Doran, a pay off of £278,000 after she 'unexpectedly stepped down' from her post.

Let's re-phrase that.

The council tax payers of Glasgow have been screwed over and have coughed up over a quarter of a million quid hush money/troughing money to Margaret Doran after she spat the dummy out and resigned/was sacked.

She was only in her 'post' for two years...

Glasgow has been labour controlled for centuries. That's why the city centre, where all the visitors go, is in decent nick and is quite nice but the rest of the city is a total midden.

Oh, and there is another wee gem of a fact.

Margaret Doran is married to Michael Connarty, the Labour MP for Linlithgow and Falkirk East.

Oink oink oink. (click for full story)

If it’s any consolation (which I doubt) an officer in my London suburban council received a £250,000 payoff plus annual pension of nearly £40,000 after he was sacked over a £12 million construction budget which ran £11 million over budget. And this from a Conservative council that is supposed to care about taxpayers’ money. When is the revolution starting?

For “construction budget” read “construction project”.

Right. So let's get this straight: my father, a pensioner, is scraping together the pennies to pay his extortionate Council Tax (he's applied for rebates and reductions, but the Cooncil refuse to believe his circumstances), while this hackit bint gets handed the CT of more than 100 people like him just for buggering off?

And we're supposed to be angry with the bankers? In a just world, there'd be pitchforks and torches in George Square.

Sam, get angry. Very angry.

It is these bastards who are pissing on our faces day after day.

Well now... there's a shock. A close relative of a Labour MP gets whacking great pay off....

Who'd ever have thought it?

What can we do about these people?

I mean we can't vote them out... postal votes and all. How can we get rid of them?

24 carat. Sad to see the end of the good old galvanised trough.
