The boneheaded and incessant dive to the bottom in all public standards is a central ethos in a non-democratic massive bureaucratic monster like the EU, one only has to look to the Soviet [Communist] tyranical paradigm, for how it eventually turns out.
Apparats in the Soviet era were lavished with perks and special concessions at GUM soviet 'super store' and girls, whatever they fancied.
In Britain, we have a similar caste of arrogant overpaid fools who value their services inordinately.
John Ransford, who stood down as chief executive of the Local Government Association last Monday, said his total pay was “not particularly out of line” with other packages for top roles in the public sector.
He said it would be considered “peanuts” by some in private industry and finance, he argues, though he adds: “I don’t regard it as peanuts; I regard it as high pay.”
Mr Ransford was paid £245,000 a year plus £57,000 in pension contributions in his final year in charge. The LGA receives money from central Government in grants and local government in subscriptions.
Not peanuts? Or peanuts? - but we know what you really mean me old son
And it gets better.........
It then emerged that Mr Ransford was retiring from the LGA and coming back to work for the association on reduced terms.
Get out, golden handshake, continue working - whats not to like??
Britain, is a Soviet of the Brussels communist bloc.
