Non-jobs of the month

Commissioners of crime, er police and crime commissioners, are doing a sterling job of wasting public money. Here we see how they can make councillors richer too, without these municipal drones having to earn it -

"Bob Jones, the West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner.... has spotted that, while the Government went to a great deal of trouble to ensure that PCCs could not have employment contracts with people who were politically active, it conspicuously failed to ban PCCs from having service contracts with them. What looked like a recruitment campaign earlier this year for 'Assistant Commissioners' and non-executive members of a 'Strategic Policing Board' was, technically speaking, not a recruitment campaign, but a procurement exercise in drag."

Mmm, I wonder what kind of people Commissioner Jones procured?

"Mr Jones, who was a Labour Councillor when elected, and who appointed a Labour Councillor as his Deputy, used the ‘recruitment campaign’ to appoint, wouldn’t you know it, 3 Labour Councillors (Faye Abbott, Judy Foster and Mohammed Nazir) to the, I guess technically non-existent, positions of Assistant Commissioners, giving them each £22,500 per year on top of their Council allowances for the two and a half days a week they spend ‘delivering a service’. Some crumbs fell from the banqueting table for other parties too - £7,500 each for Lib Dem Councillor Ernie Hendricks [and] Conservative Councillor Tim Sawdon."

Nice work if you can get it - or at least it would be work if the parasites had any duties. Still, Muggins is paying.
