Cockell tells the Daily Telegraph:
“Clawing back money from those shown to have overcharged the taxpayer is an attractive idea. Councils wouldn’t hesitate to explore the possibility of reclaiming money that would be better spent on aged care or libraries.
Our reader poses the logical question...."So does that mean that Cockell is going to pay back his vast allowances to the tax payer and stop the shameful waste of money by the Tri-Borough PR Department?
By the way, whilst on the subject would dear readers, when commenting on Pooter's friend Cllr Coleman, be wary of making any potentially litigious comments. Coleman loves to threaten people with his lawyers, yet has no problems making unpleasant and unfounded comments about Ted Heath and his sexual proclivities. But then Heath is dead so cannot defend himself.
