Bosses had 'no choice' but to propose Wolverhampton council tax increase

Wolverhampton Civic Centre

Council bosses have said they had 'no choice' but to propose an 83 per cent rise in council tax payments in Wolverhampton.

Jacko

They sleep very well mate. Just think of the first class salaries and gold plated pensions the executives are paying themselves , for running what is now a third world town.

Before anybody corrects ...

Jacko

How much money would be saved if the old system, whereby councillors we're not paid attendance allowances, was reintroduced ?

How much money would be saved if the top brass in the council were all pa...

Any chance the chief exec and his assistants will have their salaries reduced in an effort to help matters ?

How social engineering benefits the toffs' schools

Social engineering stinks. How will the education authorities know who is poor or "middle class"?

Poll: Is there a shortage of flexible childcare in the West Midlands?

Childcare costs

Low-income families are still struggling to find good quality, flexible childcare, according to a new report.

markie

I agree with you David, in addition single parent families can usually not afford the child care fees. In families where both parents work it is more affordable.

davidelkington

If you don't have full time, you have care days - set in stone!

If you book a holiday - you still pay even if your child isn't there and they sell the...
