Derek Myers when not having 'afternoon tennis lessons' has told the K&C Cabinet to create two new posts costing, with platinum plated pensions and other perks, the equivalent of over £200k a year. One Conservative backbench councillor is fuming the appointments are just being nodded thorough by the Cabinet. So who is this rebellious councillor? The Dame would love to know and have a glimpse at the email.
This lucky duo, as Director and Head of Service will add another layer of bloated bureaucracy in Environmental Services. So what are these two jobsworths going to be doing? Well, the brief is wide ranging and quite eclectic...in between registering births, deaths and matrimonials they will also keep an eye on rubbish collections and street trading
Our Derek has come up with a clever way to pay for these salaries....he is going to nick most of the money from the K&C street traders ring fenced account.
The Market Streets Action Group will be meeting on Tuesday 29th January at 4pm at the Isaac Newton Centre, 108a Lancaster Road, W11 1QS, near Ladbroke Road station.
All those interested in the future of our Street Markets culture and heritage are warmly encouraged to attend.
