A nice little earner

Having read about Cllr P Warner failing to pay his Council Tax and the feeble excuse offered in mitigation, I felt compelled to check on Eastbourne Borough Council’s website with particular reference to members’ allowances.

There is a Mr P Warner listed as receiving £3,173.00 which is, no doubt, funded out of the Council Tax paid by the vast majority of Eastbourne residents many of whom are probably less affluent.

Assuming therefore that this is the same Mr P Warner who is featured in your article, I am not surprised that he would not resign over so shameful an episode – nice little earner Mr Councillor.
