At the recent council meeting it was reported that Cllr Barling said the council had little option but to pay the former chief executive £300,000, including ‘legal costs’. Oh yes it did!
He should have been sacked for several reasons e.g. the Coughlan Report covering many failures.
Instead, although it refuses to give any information, the council apparently rolled over and gave him a shed-load of our money!
Cllr Barling should think again. Perhaps it will cross his mind that the pay-off was 15 years of wages for the average worker in this country.
I trust he does try to represent ordinary people as well as the prosperous in his constituency.
