Letters: Gill Mitchell Is A Moaner

Published by on Sunday, 20 September 2009No Comment

If prizes were issued for hypocrisy, then surely Gill Mitchell, leader of the Labour group of councillors, would win the contest by a mile.

In The Argus (26th August) she has the gall to suggest the seven top officers are each receiving in excess of £100,000. I might agree that these sums do seem somewhat excessive, if it weren’t for the fact that it was the previous Labour administration, in which she held high office, that bumped up the salaries to their present level in the first place.

It seems Mrs. Mitchell is at her happiest when moaning about the present administration, be it the cost of repairing the bandstand here or the state of the seafront railings and Madeira Drive there, conveniently forgetting that her party had more than twenty years in which to arrest this shocking decline.

The dereliction of our city is a direct result of Labour’s dereliction of duty – a dereliction which cost most Labour councillors their jobs at the last elections, and whilst the Tories are not perfect, at least they are restoring some of the city’s pride.

If you can’t say anything positive Gill, please stop talking our city down.
