I don't do it for the money - part II

Yes - Borough Councillors have unanimously voted for a 2% increase plus £1,000 in basic expenses - and we sneakily waited till after the local elections to do it.

For the record - that means the basic allowance for being a Borough Councillor is now £4,568 a year. And I get an additional £2,668 a year for being 'Executive Member for Improvement'.

That's a total of £7,236 a year - not quite enough for me to employ a nanny to fit me a new kitchen.
