The Daily Express claims that up to 450 council bosses have been handed “golden goodbyes” of at least £100,000 in the last year. It says the biggest pay-off went to the former managing director of Kent County Council, while Lancashire County Council is said to have awarded remuneration packages of more than £100,000 to 36 members of its staff. Bob Neill, the minister for local government, and the Taxpayers’ Alliance’s Matthew Sinclair provide opinions.
