Coun­cil­lors should bear the loss

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Opinion -

Please cor­rect me if I am wrong, but surely leader Paul Carter and the rest of the KCC coun­cil­lors re­ceiv­ing at least £24,000 plus “spe­cial pay­ments” are per­son­ally re­spon­si­ble for any short­fall in the county coun­cil bud­get cre­ated by in­vest­ing £50m in Ice­landic banks. I seem to re­mem­ber a sim­i­lar case in­volv­ing West­min­ster coun­cil some years ago. I look for­ward to the re­pay­ment of the debt by the afore­men­tioned coun­cil­lors, but I sus­pect that I and the rest of Kent’s coun­cil tax­pay­ers will have to bail them out once again.
