‘Private Eye’ Exposes ECDC Members Greed

Satirical magazine ‘Private Eye‘ shamed ECDC’s greed in their August 8th issue (No. 1216) as part of the ‘Rotton Boroughs’ section. It reads…

“Council staff around Britain went on strike last month over a 2.45 percent pay rise. Happily their paymasters have felt less constrained in awarding themselves more generous rises.”

“At East Cambridgeshire district council senior members have just trousered a modest 94 percent increase in their allowances, while at the same time cutting the arts budget by £70,000 and forcing the closure of a gallery in Ely. The 94 percent is for committee chairs, with ordinary members getting a mere 10 percent rise, costing the council £22,000.”
