Communities Secretary Eric Pickles has “suggested” to Local Councils that they scrap expensive “non jobs” to protect front line services from cuts.
Just what do “Street Football Co-ordinators”, “Cheerleading Development Officers”, Diversity Officers and “Communications Waste Strategy Officers” do other than cost a lot of money?
It is time that Local Councils were made accountable for their ludicrous waste of money on pointless non jobs.
Local Government is still living in an unreal world funded by the bottomless pit of the tax payer, just check the Guardian jobs page and see how manu local Government jobs pay £40-50k per year and all paid for by us.

The cry of the rapidly dwindling band of supporters of Labour is often “The Conservatives have no policies” or our particular favourite “What are their policies? WE DEMAND TO KNOW!”
To help them answer this important question we will be updating this post with Policy announcements as they happen.

The Conservative Party Charmain on the forthcoming conference
Eric Pickles’ is planning to launch a new Tory T-shirt at Party Conference. Will he wear it, I ask myself? After canvassing for ideas he has shortlisted four pro-Conservative themes….
* Yes we Cam
* Release your inner Tory
* Vote Blue not Brown
* Cam Can
…and four anti-Labour themes…
* Don’t blame me I voted Tory
* A picture of Gordon Brown and the words ‘The weak are a long time in politics’
* New Labour 1997 – 2010…end of an error
* A picture of Gordon Brown with the word ‘Fail’ underneath.
Aardvark will be ordering several of The weak are a long time in politcs and shortly emailing Eric with a suggestion that the F word be replaced with the C word.
Cuts what did you think I meant?
