Trim pension pot, not public services
IN REPLY to the leader of Bucks County Council asking whether taxpayers are prepared to pay to protect services amid ‘savage’ spending cuts, I would like to ask him whether he and his colleagues are prepared to reduce the contributions to their pension pots?
A huge amount of local government debt is related to the partially funded Local Government Pension Scheme, which by any standards is extremely generous compared to those of us in the private sector.
I will let readers come to their own conclusions regarding the answer I am likely to receive.
