"All in this together"?......MY ARSE!!!!
Another example of how we are not "all in it together" comes from the Local Government Association, the representative body for local councillors in England and Wales.
Whilst imposing a pay freeze for local government workers, this same body thinks a pay increase of 2.3% is warranted for them.
In Brighton and Hove, the councillors are a little more circumspect. They are agonising over a pay rise of 1%. A decision on this has been delayed - doubtless because they know how badly this will play with their workforce who are getting no pay rise at all.
Keep an eye on this one - they'll no doubt make the decision when they think we're not looking!
