Spin over services

Notts County Council are planning to make £33m of service cuts - and at the same time they have decided to advertise for a a new Service Director of Communications (aka "Spin Doctor") with the very handsome salary of more than £71,000

This is a slap in the face of the thousands of frontline staff such as care workers, social workers and contact centre staff who will be spending the Christmas break worrying about whether they will be made redundant in the new year

The advert, which you can find here, says "Nottinghamshire has undergone a change in direction." The council has certainly undergone a change in direction as it now values spin over services

Shameful behavoiour.
