Let’s do the Time Warp again

2 Apr


Back in October 2013 Forest Gate councillor Ellie Robinson and Plaistow councillor Forhad Hussain were appointed to the mayor’s cabinet as ‘deputy executive members for community affairs.’

Their detailed job descriptions have recently been published on the council website, along with the allowance they will be paid: £31,000 a year, on top of their £10,800 basic.

That might seem a lot, but every penny will be spent funding development of the time machine they’ll need to fulfil one of their key responsibilities:

“Inspire residents across the borough to ‘get the party started’ in 2012 and work closely with all Councillors to maximise enthusiasm and participation.”

    are you sure you have those amounts correct as that is as much as a cabinet member. I thought their SRA was around £3k, and even thats too much.

      They are both cabinet members now and the posts are graded 4C, which attracts an SRA of £31,000. They are meant to be 5 day a week positions.

        That is just wrong on so many levels. No wonder Forhad no longer answers my emails – too embarrassed. Not bad for someone who stood for the Respect Party in the previous election. Clearly the money has influenced whatever principles he had retained.
