The council are proposing to adopt the recommendations of the Independent Panel that recommends what Councillors should be awarded each year.
The clue is in the question.
Its a recommendation.
So lets see some solidarity with those people in the borough of the private sector who have lost their jobs or seen their income fall - or those in the public sector at risk of redundancy through budget cuts, or have their salaries frozen or fall due to reduced hours.
Ditch the councillor pay recommendations, and cut them in half.
