Don't Eat With Your Mouth Full

Where can we live but days?


it's actually the same road, only a bit further along

one could say that about most roads on any given landmass. *strikes philosophical pose*

Very true - the road outside Frodo's front door runs all the way to Mordor.

Aw! What a marvellous cat!

I must admit, I resent paying the Chief Execs of councils quarter of a million a year in wages and an equivalent in pensions. But changing the pay and conditions of people who have already signed a contract agreeing what their pension would be when they retired? That's really, really low. Especially when that wretched man Goodwin gets off Scot free with his when he can't even do his job properly!

Indeed - I resent that too. When I rule the world, it will be against the law for any member of an organization (public or private) to earn more than 5 times what the lowest-paid member of the organization is paid. That leaves plenty of room for incentive - anything more is just greed.

When I worked for a local authority, many moons ago, it was generally accepted that wage levels were low compared to the private sectors (and the civil service, at that). But the holidays and pensions balanced out the deficiencies in pay scale, and it remained a desirable place to work.

Methinks the top tier in the councils have restructured their organisations to suit themselves, and now everyone's paying for their greed.
