Councillor’s ill-natured remark was what I expected

IT BEGGARS belief that our county councillors should have the gall to vote themselves a 25 per cent pay increase in allowances during this present period of austerity when many council employees are being made redundant.

And Councillor Jeff Dutton’s ill-natured remarks in your paper that “those protesting outside Shire Hall were probably getting more in benefits than councillors get in allowances” is completely unwarranted, but then only what I should expect from him.
