Dear Secretary, The Labour Party
It is quite clear that those two hatted councillors serving both NYCC and their District Council have claimed twice for IT expenses, ie broadband connection.
It must be very very annoying for those honourable, honest stand up councillors who did not take advantage of the tax payer, having to sit side by side with those councillors who claimed IT expenses twice, ie additional £500ish.
In some cases I believe there are examples of a married couple serving on both councils claiming multiple IT expenses each!
It must be exceptionally annoying for those real stand up honest and honourable Councillors who already have broadband connection and a computer at home who do not claim any IT expenses, saving the tax payer £1000ish if they were to claim from the District Council and NYCC.
Would it not be an honourable gesture if all those double dipping Labour Councillors did the right thing and paid back any IT expenses they claimed for twice?
Would it not be an honourable gesture if all those double dipping Labour Councillors did the right thing and perhaps gave back any money they received over and above the actual cost of their IT expenditure?
Is it not time for those Labour Councillors to lead by example, set an example?
Having read the attachments regards York Potash, ie see section I’ve cut and pasted below, why has the Labour Party in this impoverished, low paid, low skilled pocket of North Yorkshire failed to make any headway against the Conservative party?
An accurate measure of a poverty stricken area is calculated by how many families are in receipt of free school meals.
Is the Labour Party for Whitby and Scarborough aware of how many families are in receipt of free school meals?
Please see extracts below. Basically this area and those people who live within it are being hammered by the Conservative Party and there is a lot more hammering yet to do.
Yet the Conservative Party rules OK and those Whitby SBC Councillors who decided to change allegiance, chose not to join to the Labour Party! They went and joined the CONSERVATIVE PARTY!
Now in 2013, despite all the stories of neglect in Whitby in the local press and the Real- Whitby on-line website, despite the Labour Party being fully aware of the dire situation faced by many families,
some Labour councillors pocket what amounts to a winters fuel bill to your average family!
Please can the Labour Party set an example and request that those double dippers refund the IT expenses they claimed for twice and better still give the change back instead of pocketing the difference over and above what they actually pay for a broadband connection.
Imagine what would happen if ALL two hatted councillors now decided to bang in a second claim for IT expenses?
