On his "Dukinfield Views" web-site Cllr John Taylor is critical of the Tories for giving "Pensioners' money to millionaires". And quite rightly so!
It is a pity he seems to have forgotten his own actions of giving pensioner's cash to ....well wealthy people if not millionaires.
In February 2006 he awarded contracts to various companies for provision of care to the elderly and other vulnerable persons. One company was Access, owned by Shirlie Rose Traynor since 1997. Traynor, former Labour councillor Shirlie Stonier sold off the company within 12 months to Care UK ltd ,(Operating profit of £19.5m for year ending October 2006). The price paid was undisclosed but Care UK reported buyng three companies (including Access) for a total of £10m
Many (most?) old folk pay for the care from the council, who in turn pay these providers who are owned, or formerly owned, by millionaires.
