Our morbidly obese councils get fatter and fatter

As local councils claim they have to cut key services to save money, I thought it might be worth showing a picture from my book Fleeced How we’ve been bettrayed by politicians, bureaucrats and bankers. In the period 1997-2008, the number of people in Britain earning more than £50,000 a year went up by a factor of three. In local government it went up by a factor of eleven, suggesting that our councils have become fat with legions of overpaid, unnecessary bureaucrats. Here are some of the councils where the number of people earning over £50,000 went up by even more than eleven times. All of these councils should be getting rid of their bureaucrats and not frontline staff and services.
