Councillors ‘out of touch’

ABOUT the article ‘Expenses cut plan thrown out’ (Express, March 8), how dare Coun Box claim the allowance system in place is both fair and seen to be fair by the public.

I bet if you asked the ‘real public’ to vote on this they would agree to the cut.

Tax payers all over this country are having to make sacrifices so why should the councillors be any different?

What is even more insulting is that they know that by taking this cut in their allowance it could potentially rescue other jobs, and yet they still voted against it.

What is this allowance anyway? This goes to show how out of touch and greedy they have all become!
