Tameside Labour Councillors Vote In Favour Of Keeping 'Jobs For The Boys'
During these times of severe economic hardship where the lowest paid are being hit the hardest I cannot help but think that the Labour Party of old would almost certainly have backed the plans to reduce the number of highly paid councillors in a bid to save money which then could be used help preserve public sector jobs, but sadly the Labour Party in its current form appears to be all about money and power. Many in the Labour Party left their principals behind a long time ago. George Orwell's Animal Farm sums up the mindset of modern Labour politicians perfectly. If you have never read the book you could watch this animated feature film and next time you hear a Labour politician spouting dishonest hot air, just think back to the film and ask yourself is this Napoleon or Snowball speaking. Like Napoleon many Labour politicians undoubtedly set out with good intentions but unfortunately once they got their snouts in the trough they liked what they found and as with their voting down of this motion to reduce the number of councillors, they put their own greedy interests ahead of the greater good for all.
