Cllr Gerald Hargreaves has managed to wangle his way on to the Cabinet allowance payroll.
Cllr 'Major' Hargreaves is now paid over £30,000 a year as Cabinet member for Voluntary Organisations and Resident Engagement.
Whatever next: Cabinet member For Stray Dogs and Cats?
With his army pension Hargreaves is now 'in the money'.
|ANOTHER OUT AT THE FRONT|
Like Captain Mainwaring, Gerry never saw a shot fired in anger.
Well, you don't if in the Royal Army Education Corps.
Looking at the picture of Gerry minded the Dame of GK Chesterton.
During the Great War, he was offered a white rose and told. "you should be out at the Front".
Looking down at his protuberant belly GK replied, "Madam, I think I am already 'out at the front'."
Odd isn't it...one of the most disliked and affected of councillors works alongside an officer similarly deficient in the charm department.
