In a speech David Cameron made in Darlington yesterday, he claimed that Labour-run Islington Council had “slashed frontline jobs and children’s services” rather than cut the salary of our Chief Executive – which had been set at £210,000 by the previous Lib Dem administration.
This was not true. In fact, Islington’s Labour administration has cut our Chief Executive’s salary by £50,000 to one of the lowest levels in London. And in spite of a 12% cut to council funding in cash terms, Labour has protected every children’s centre in the Borough.
