LEAVE OUR MASSIVE ALLOWANCES ALONE SAYS POOTER COCKELL




LGA Conservatives hit back at Shapps in councillors' pensions row




Sir Merrick (aka Pooter Cockell) chair of the Local Government Association (LGA) and Conservative group leader Cllr Gary Porter launched a vehement attack against remarks made earlier by Conservative Party chairman Grant Shapps and local government minister Brandon Lewis. Both have a vested interest in continuing to live off the taxpayer and don't want the likes of Shapps and Lewis getting in their way. 
POOTER IN SCOUTMASTER MODE
Shapps,served as DCLG housing minister until last summer’s reshuffle, likened councillors to Boy Scouts in undertaking their civic role, when speaking on BBC Radio 4's Today programme. Mr Shapps was talking in reaction to the findings of the Commons CLG committee into broadening participation at local level, which urged independent local bodies should set councillor allowances.
In response, leader of Kensington & Chelsea RBC Sir Merrick Cockell, told the LGA’s executive meeting on 10 January ministers couldn't have it both ways in wanting more hands-on town hall leaders and fewer high-paid chief executives on the one hand, and a return to part-time oversight on the other.

  4. As we all know the coalition is desperately trying to bring public sector expenditure under control and making appropriate cuts where possible and yet it seems to me that the government does not have the co-operation of the likes of Sir Merrick and others, who are happy to continue feathering their beds. I have thought for along time that there are far too many tiers of government in this country. Why we have to have Whitehall, then City Hall (Boris), Quangos like the LGA (Sir Merrick), Local Councils such as RBK&C and so it goes on. The country is completely top heavy and Government needs to realise that these unproductive, hugely expensive and in truth unnecessary tiers should be severely cut. I would start by following Mrs Thatchers footsteps and close City Hall.
