Cost of politics in Ashfield and Mansfield

October 17, 2019

This morning, I've been contacted by the TaxPayers' Alliance with news of their latest campaign, which focuses on the extortionate 'cost of politics' in Mansfield and Ashfield. 


Their research shows that Mansfield District Council has the highest costs for Councillors Allowances anywhere in the country, and it's not a close contest. Apart from Ashfield, who are a close second. Mansfield spend over 30% (or more than £100k a year) more on Councillors than anywhere else in the country.  


If I wanted to be party political, I could also point out that the two best value for money councils also happen to be the two Conservative-led ones... but I won't mention that! 


You can see the full details of their campaign here and sign their petition calling for better value for money.
