Letter: Outrage at the quite disgusting rise in councillors' allowances
Date published: 09 January 2017
It seems the local Labour party is getting a little upset at the amount of outrage at the quite disgusting rise in allowances, some have even taken to calling local politics "nasty". I would suggest the only nasty thing going on is the absolute hypocrisy of our elected councillors.
Rochdale Online has published some fantastic letters; the latest one really says it all and I agree with every word.
I would call on all local councillors who know this is utterly wrong to voice that view at the next council meeting in March and stop this madness. The people of Rochdale have seriously had enough.
The views expressed are those of the author of the letter and not those of Rochdale Online.
