That's the way to do it!

John Ransford may have felt uncomfortable yesterday when thirty council leaders called on him to take a 10% pay cut. After all, he'd only recently secured his £300k package as head of the Local Government Association. But then came a bald announcement that his wedge was being reduced by 66% - 2/3rds, to around £100k. It's unclear whether he jumped or was pushed. 

This puts Ransford almost on par with the guy he will face over the cuts table, new UNITE boss Leninist Len McCluskey, also on a £100k wedge. Cheer up though, lads; it's still Champagne and canapes money. The beer and sandwiches are a way away yet.

Lets just hope that this is the start of a rout. If these useless bastards think they are THAT good, then they can exercise their right to leave and apply for high paid jobs in the private sector.

Surely they should have any problems...
