Tax Abuser Of The Week

Recommended Posts

Salaries are higher than ever but number of tax abuser jobs being advertised has been shrinking lately. This could be seasonal but it could also be that the councils are getting more secretive. If they have moved their advertisements, I would be very keen to hear where they have gone.

.....could be they are beginning to realise:

[

size=3]A fifth of your council tax is paying for 'gold-plated' pensions at the town hall

[/size]

Comments Comments (51)

Almost £1 in every £5 handed over by council taxpayers is used to support the pensions of town hall workers, a report reveals today.

The country's 1.6million local government employees have 'gold-plated' final salary pensions, while many in the private sector face retiring on a pittance.

Experts criticised the devastating findings, which they said prove a "pensions aristocracy" is developing.

Council workers can retire as young as 55 – while everyone else faces working until their 68th birthday.

The report by the TaxPayers' Alliance will anger millions of council tax payers whose bills have nearly doubled since Labour came to power.

For a few tantalising seconds I toyed with that idea as well. Then I concluded that we are more likely to see peace in the middle east or a fair election in Africa.

Wouldn't do it for twice the money. Your head on the line if you take a child away from a family and it turns out they weren't being abused. Your head on the line if you don't take them away and it turns out they were. Your head on the line if you ban dangerous school trips and end up in the Daily Mail. Your head on the line if you don't and a kid dies on one. Etc etc.

Perhaps an element of the salary is to attract people who know that whatever they do they'll attract the opprobrium of a bigoted tabloid press and those who seem bilious with the politics of envy.

Surely if it's such a rich gravy train the obvious thing would be to climb aboard. One wonders whether Dog's obsession on the subject betrays a spurned lover?

Is it me or do these salaries look justified. Does the OP think they just on their backsides collecting their money? Evidence?

Actually as long as you fill your quota of children for adoption you get the nice bonus and career advancement. Doesn't matter whether the children were abused or not as long as the bureaucrats hit their targets.

They look entirely justified to me this week, but that's probably due to someone I know having been recruited fresh out of university by a US law firm's London office, on a promise of £60k a year after two years.

Why bother spending thirty years working your way up in services for children, schools and foster parents when you only get twice that at the top of your career?

Thanks for that, The Daily Mail. Shame it bears no relation whatsoever to the truth.

It's not the chief executives that bother me - after all, there's only one of them. It's the apparent hordes of jobs advertised in Guardian Society involving a random assortment of words like

outreach

co-ordination

liaison

diversity

minorities

integration

diadvantaged

etc (haven't got a copy of Guardian Society to hand)

where you honestly can't work out what the person DOES all day, or how things would be worse if they didn't exist. The more complex the description, the more sceptical I am. After all, if a care home/ hospital wants a nurse to specialise in geriatric care, that's what they ask for - a geriatric nurse (oops; well, a nurse specialising in geriatrics!!) Not " a care operative qualified in transactions with physically disadvantaged and age-challenged community marginalised individuals in an institutional non-family environment."

Shakespeare did NOT say "Males of advanced years frequently exhibit marked degeneration of the recollective faculties" He said "Old men forget.." Pity the copywriters can't copy him.

Aye, there's an honesty to the bigotry of the redtops which the dissembling jack-booted Daily Mail would do well to attempt to emulate.

Isn't this "outcome" (as they say) related to the abundance of degrees? All these graduates need to have their roles described like that to hide the reality i.e. that they used to be done by O level / GCSE or A level educated people and are mostly admin roles requiring common sense.

I think you'll find they're not allowed to hit them. Goes somewhat against the grain, physical assault.

Whilst not an abuse of tax, the same sort of ****** happens in the private sector.

I work for a very large UK company that's recently been in talks with another very large company in the same industry. For the last 12 month the top echelons of the UK sector got together with the other company to try and broker a deal that would result in the sharing of certain infrastructure. Because of competition law they had to effectively divorce themselves from the company for the period of planning.

So for 12 months these highly paid individuals pi$$ed off and worked on a deal which ultimately failed to materialise. In the meantime, others filled their positions on a temporary basis and business carried on as usual.

Those folks involved in the talks are now looking to return to their old jobs after achieving the square root of nothing, and understandably, some are asking whether they're really needed after all.

Just thought I'd balance things out a little, it's not just the public sector with their snouts in the trough.
