New Labour jobs for the comrades.

From Thisisnottingham....THE city council's Labour group has sparked controversy after approving another Executive Board member on an allowance of almost £18,000.

Angry union leaders have accused the council of finding a job for one of their own while sacking 366 staff and axeing another 333 vacant posts.

Last night, Labour members pressed ahead with the appointment of Coun Hassan Ahmed as the eighth portfolio holder on the executive. He will be responsible for economic development and skills.

Coun Graham Chapman, deputy Labour leader insisted he would provide extra focus on the economy and said savings in councillors' budgets would fund the post. The savings are yet to be agreed, but could include budget and pay cuts.

Regional officer at Unison, Ravi Subramanian, said he was "staggered" at the decision.

Tim Clements, regional officer at GMB, said: "They are holding their employees in total disrespect and do not care what is happening to them. The only thing that will stop them will be if their jobs are in jeopardy."

Labour appoints a leader, deputy leader, and portfolio holders at its AGM each year. Coun Chapman and leader Jon Collins are already confirmed in their post. Others will be allocated in the next few days.

A vote for Labour is a vote for even more self serving champagne swilling filth to rob the public coffers and give their pals a job.
