Forgot to add on my last post that we certainly don't get value for money.

We can check on the work they do by watching the web cast if we can stay awake.

That's almost £200,000 that would be better spent on our decaying town.

Well it says alot.. All in this together, poppycock! They should hang there collective heads in shame. What have Theydon for the town? Closing shops, anti social behaviour at an all time high, youthcafe closure, our beloved town Park now part of a trust, the house used by the borough and our hospital mothballed and our town museum a sad one room affair. Need I say more.

Iíll have to change my profession and become a councillor, how many people in Blaenau Gwent are fortunate enough to earn £20,000 - £30,000 a year for a full time job let alone part time?

They are all on the gravy train, no surprise many of these councillors are against the merger of local authorities, that money could be better spent on improvements in our run-down town.

Davy you are so right if they had to survive on just their pensions they would see a hell of a different lifestyle to the ones they have now.

I have said all along they don't want the merger as over half of them would have to lead a different lifestyle.

I hope and pray it goes ahead as we cannot be no worse off.

I have asked Councilor Trollope to explain his expenses on Twitter but as of yet have not had a reply.

The Wi-Fi must be down in Wetherspoons.

Just as a point of accuracy, that figure isn't Councillor Trollope's expenses its his salary for the year.

K Hayden claimed £729 for travel
A Hobbs claimed £204.80 for travel and £190 for subsistence
B Willis claimed £256.50 for travel

M Cross, J Morgan, D Owens, D Rowberry, S Thomas and H Trollope all claimed £0 expenses.

The breakdown of the figures is here: http://www.blaenau-gwent.gov.uk/documents/Documents_Governance/Outturnreport20142015.pdf

Councillors' pay was introduced several years ago to encourage a younger and better standard of person standing for election. Anyone think it has worked?
