Would a Conservative Councillor from Bournemouth like to explain how his council can justify advertising for an "Executive Director of Transformation" on a salary of ... wait for it ... £101,000?*
And while I am at it, what a ridiculous job title. Conservative councils are supposed to cost you less, and yet this council advertises this job at a time when it has a £2.4 million overspend this year. It strikes me that this council is not being run by councillors at all. It is being run by officers.
Perhaps Bournemouth Conservative councillors might like to take a day trip (at their own expense) to meet Stephen Greenhalgh, the leader of the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. He can teach them a thing or two about cutting costs, doing away with non-jobs and cutting council tax. He doesn't just proclaim he's a Conservative, he acts like one.
