What were we saying about Tories and inequality?

Councillors in one of the poshest parts of the country – which includes David Cameron’s home village – are to give themselves a pay rise of nearly 17%, sparking fury among workers and unions.

Tory-controlled West Berkshire council will vote tomorrow on proposals to increase the amount it pays councillors in allowances by 16.5%.

It comes just days after Tory council chiefs begged George Osborne not to impose more brutal cuts on local authorities, which would severely hit public services.
