COUNCIL: Costs show inequality

I was interested to read your front page story about the departure of Northumberland County Council’s ex-chief executive costing £370,000 in various fees and benefits, (News Post Leader, June 7).

Wow, no wonder I can no longer afford the garden waste collection fee, I’m paying for these astronomical costs.

I’m sure the recipient feels he is worth every penny, but this is exactly the sort of inequality that led the working class to vote for Brexit.

Why do we tolerate it?
