Spot the Difference
A reader from Noth Lanarkshire has been in touch to ask:
"What is the difference between an old-fashioned bonus scheme and the 'performance related pay' scheme for senior officials in North Lanarkshire Council?"
A very good question - I have to say - 10 out of 10 for effort.
I'll have some more to say about it tomorrow.
But the key issue for me is that it looks extremely bad that this scheme appears to be available - only to the most senior and highest paid officials within the council.
Now why would a good 'socialist' and Labour-run council agree to such a thing?
Which is another good question - even though I say so myself.
