Wouldn’t it be nice if we were all fucking idiots.

The Daily Mail

 

 I tell you what!

All this old bollocks of paying useless, fat, nonce ponce, corrupt, Wankers undeserved, huge wages while decent hard working people slog their guts out for a pittance really has to stop. 

Quite when people are going to wake up to the scam is anyone’s guess, but fuck me, come on people: Up your fucking game.

These useless, part time cunts are [not] earning in a year what some people can’t earn in ten. 

It wouldn’t be so bad if they actually made themselves fucking useful instead of committing multiple fraud like Lord ‘fat fuck’ Hanningfield, the former leader of Essex County Council.

Or cunt’s like Councillor Colin ‘Steptoe‘ Brewfart or whatever the weird looking, trampy cunts name is.

You know the cunt I’m talking about. The shit stain who comes out with obscene statements such as disabled children need to be put down… I’d put that cunt down. Fuck me, I would hit him so many times he would think he was fucking surrounded. 

In fact, if you read my article Parliamentary paedophiles you will come across a link for a long fucking list of paedophile councillors… Yes people. You pay them a lot of fucking money to fuck your kids.

Course, the Daily Mail are bigging up the cunt Cameron on this matter by stating that 636 local council officials are earning more than the Prime Minister.

But Cameron is just as fucking bad though.

That useless cunt is helping himself to public money which he doesn’t do fuck all to earn either. In fact, the cunt is is being publicly paid to chart the country’s downfall.

“Yes but he is the Prime Minister”.

Fuck me! if you needed a fucking brain to be a Prime Minister there would be a different fucking line up to the last 9 or 10 cunts who have occupied Downing Street, that is for fucking sure.

And, the Mail also forgot to add on the hundreds of thousands of pounds that the cunt Cameron steals to pay essentials like his 2nd mortgage and to keep him and his odious fucking wife in the lap of undeserved luxury.

Yet the fucking funniest thing of all, is that these ‘clued up, right minded’ people, having their taxes stolen to fund these good for fuck all (except smashing the fucking granny out of the piss taking cunts of course) useless ponces, hear or see my name mentioned and say “Spivey! The man’s a fucking idiot”… Now you really, really couldn’t make that shit up…

Lets go to war.

 

 

 

The 636 council officials who now earn more than the Prime Minister

  • Some 2,525 council staff earned more than £100,000 in 2011-12
  • 42 local authority employees are on more than £250,000

Some 636 local council officials are earning more than the Prime Minister, a new report reveals today.

They were on salaries of £150,000 or more last year – while David Cameron earns £142,500 for running the country.

Some 2,525 council staff earned more than £100,000 in 2011-12 while 42 local authority employees are on more than £250,000 – a salary that is on par with chief executives of leading multinational companies.

Before becoming Prime Minister, Mr Cameron vowed to make all local authorities publish the names and salaries of staff on more than around £60,000.

According to the Taxpayers’ Alliance ‘Townhall Richlist’, there has been an 11 per cent drop in the number of staff receiving six figure sums.

But 103 councils actually increased the number of officials earning more than £100,000, with the highest paid, Katherine Kerswell, earning nearly £600,000 thanks in part to a £420,000 pay-off when she left Kent County Council. Mrs Kerswell moved shortly afterwards to a six-figure job in Whitehall.

Birmingham City Council doubled the number of officials who rake in £100,000 to 24. And Camden Council in London has 40 staff earning six figures.

 

 

Even the Tories’ flagship borough, Wandsworth Council, pays its chief executive Paul Martin a total of £254,880.

The largest remuneration package in Scotland was received by Linda Hardie, executive director of South Lanarkshire Council who received £543,538.

Glasgow, home to some of Scotland’s poorest residents, also has the highest number of employees with packages worth more than £100,000: some 27 workers there are on six figures.

Communities Secretary Eric Pickles welcomed the report saying it 'shows the real scope for councils to save money by tackling senior pay bills'Communities Secretary Eric Pickles welcomed the report saying it ‘shows the real scope for councils to save money by tackling senior pay bills’

John Sharkey, chief Executive of the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre in Glasgow, a company almost entirely owned by Glasgow City Council, received £314,553.  This included a bonus for having a tough year.

Orkney, with its tiny population of 20,000, managed to pay one official £339,610.

Most of assistant chief executive Elaine Grieve’s pay was due to a bumper pension of £207,424, as well as a £41,965 pay-off.

All of the top ten earners are chief executives, however big salaries are also being drawn by those overseeing leisure services, environmental and ‘wellbeing’ departments and social workers.

Kirklees Council in West Yorkshire pays its director of wellbeing and communities £131,381. North Tyneside’s unnamed head of access and inclusion is on £141,484.

The breakdown of the figures showed that Boris Johnson’s former spindoctor, Guito Harri, had a pay packet of £146,000. And a headteacher of Woolwich Polytechnic has an astonishing salary of £179,420.

Matthew Sinclair, of the Taxpayers’ Alliance, said: ‘It is good news that the number of senior council staff making more than £100,000 a year is finally falling, although that may only be because many authorities have finished paying eye-watering redundancy bills.

‘Sadly, too many local authorities are still increasing the number of highly-paid staff on their payroll, some of whom are given hundreds of thousands of pounds in compensation just to move from one public sector job to another.’

Local Government Secretary Eric Pickles said: ‘I welcome this report, which shows the real scope for councils to save money by tackling senior pay bills.

‘Town hall pay was allowed to spiral out of control under the last administration and this Government has been clear councils need to show much greater restraint.

‘By introducing transparency for senior and middle management posts; democratic checks on jobs over £100,000; and scrapping golden goodbye bureaucracy for severance deals we have brought greater public scrutiny to bear and seen a welcome reduction in bumper pay packets.’

He added that councillors had the power to block exorbitant pay deals, warning: ‘They have no-one to hide behind if they chose not to.’

Mr Pickles has encouraged councils to scrap highly paid chief executive posts or share their top executives with neighbouring authorities.

Local authorities are now required to publish details of all salaries of senior staff over £50,000, and name those on over £150,000.

Tory to be sued by expenses watchdog over £54,000 profit on taxpayer-funded home as it is revealed MPs made £1m profit through selling property

  • Watchdog releases details of 28 MPs who agreed to return money
  • MPs were banned from putting new mortgages on expenses in 2010
  • Peterborough MP the only one to refuse – and is being taken to court
  • MPs jointly made £1m on selling their homes

Tory MP Stewart Jackson claims he is being 'bullied' by the expenses watchdogTory MP Stewart Jackson claims he is being ‘bullied’ by the expenses watchdog

A Tory MP is being sued by the expenses watchdog after refusing to hand over the capital gain on his taxpayer-funded second home.

Stewart Jackson vowed he will not pay £54,000 – the amount the watchdog said represents his constituency home’s increase in value while he was claiming mortgage interest on his expenses.

The news comes after it emerged that MPs have jointly made more than £1 million by selling their second homes.

The revelation prompted accusations that MPs were making a profit using taxpayers’ money.

Mr Jackson, the MP for Peterborough, is the only one of 29 MPs to have refused the demand by the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority to pay up.

The other MPs, including four Cabinet ministers, have agreed to repay a total of £484,828.

The money is to cover a proportion of the increased value of their second homes funded by the taxpayer through a mortgage interest subsidy.

Welsh Secretary David Jones was forced to repay the most – £81,446 – for a home in London.

Defence Secretary Philip Hammond handed over £34,884. Environment Secretary Owen Paterson paid £7,755 and Kenneth Clarke, a minister without portfolio, paid £737.

Treasury minister David Gauke repaid £26,762.76, universities minister David Willetts £7,730.74, and former farming minister Sir Jim Paice £9,177.12.

 

During the expenses scandal, a string of MPs were accused of making big financial gains on their second homes. There was public fury over the practice of ‘flipping’ the designation of second homes to claim more taxpayers’ cash and over other abuses.

The expenses watchdog Ipsa has reached deals with 70 MPs to repay some of the profit from homes bought with taxpayers' moneyThe expenses watchdog Ipsa has reached deals with 70 MPs to repay some of the profit from homes bought with taxpayers’ money

IPSA said yesterday that it had launched legal action at the High Court to recover the cash from Mr Jackson.

But the MP said he would not pay up and claimed that his constituency home had fallen in value since he bought it for £470,000 at the end of 2005.

MP’S PROFIT ON HOME SALES

Lorely Burt, Liberal Democrat – £180,000

Malcolm Bruce, Liberal Democrat – £110,000

Angela Smith, Labour – £170,000

Nigel Dodds, Democratic Unionist – £152, 823

Hazel Blears, Labour – £120,000

David Gauke, Tory Exchequer Secretary – £67,000

He accused IPSA of rushing into ‘heavy-handed and disproportionate’ litigation which was ‘clearly intended to bully me into submission’.

IPSA banned the use of Commons expenses to pay mortgage interest in May 2010. But transitional arrangements allowed MPs elected before 2010 to keep claiming the money up to last August – as long as they agreed to return any potential capital gain.

Martin Bell, the former MP who has campaigned for greater transparency, said that MPs should repay any profit.

He told the Daily Telegraph: ‘It’s an open and shut case, of course they should pay it back.

‘There is the spirit of the law, why are they making a personal profit from allowances which they receive from the taxpayer? In this case they very clearly are.’

Mr Jackson said: ‘All British citizens are entitled to seek legal adjudication if the State’s actions are unfair or possibly illegal and so I will be forcefully resisting their precipitous litigation.’

He disputes Ipsa’s assessment that the family home in his constituency rose in value by 20 per cent from 2010 to 2012, claiming house prices in the area actually fell by three per cent.

‘At my own expense, I have paid for an accurate recent expert valuation and I have made a reasonable offer to IPSA to settle the matter and reduce the legal costs which will have to be met by the taxpayer.

‘My valuation recognises the need for proper recompense to be paid to the taxpayer to reflect their support for my housing costs between 2010 and 2012, in order to fulfill my duties as both a London based legislator and a constituency MP.

‘IPSA have negotiated with 70 other MPs in a secretive and arbitrary manner but in respect of my case, regrettably, they have refused to negotiate.

‘I am merely seeking fair play and consistency and will pursue legal action to receive it.’

An Ipsa spokesman said: ‘One of the most damaging aspects of the expenses scandal was the practice where MPs got taxpayer support to own a second home. That is why we said we would stop this, and we have now done so.

‘The final stage in bringing this to an end was our allowing a short transition period for MPs who were already committed to second mortgages.

‘But in doing this we set the condition that the taxpayer would want its share of any increase in the value of the property. Today we are publishing that these capital gains are worth almost £500,000 to the taxpayer.

‘MPs knew this was the deal and agreed to the conditions at the start. In valuing the property, it was important that we didn’t rely on amateur valuations or guesses from the web.

‘Instead, we demanded formal valuations at the start and end, from the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors – the most authoritative voice in this field.

‘We would only accept valuations from RICS members or fellows – providing proper assurance on the value of the properties.

‘We required all MPs to provide these independent valuations at the start and end of the claim period. And we published the way in which the capital gain would be calculated. The same method of calculation has been applied to all 71 cases.

‘Stewart Jackson provided us with two RICS valuations. As he has been unwilling to pay the £54,000 due we have issued proceedings to recover the sum through the High Court.’

Among those not asked for repayments were Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, who claimed £9,104 on a home in his Sheffield constituency, and David Miliband, who claimed £5,903 on a property in his former seat of South Shields.
