Sprat or Mackerel?

I have so many things to blog on today that I am going to have to post a few times when I find gaps.
The first post has to be about the sheer blatant hypocrisy of the soon to be ex CEO of Bedfordshire County Council, Andrea Hill, who has just secured a new position with Suffolk County Council for £220,000 per year.
Bedfordshire County Council is about to be abolished as Bedfordshire prepares, following a government announcement this week, to establish two new unitary authorities.
Andrea Hill - despite her council having spent between £600,000 - £700,000 of tax payers money fighting to become a single unitary authority - has been rumoured for at least the last six months to have been looking for another job.
The first interview was with Cambridgeshire, which I believe she didn't get.
Weeks ago she stood outside County Hall in Bedford waving placards stating how much she loved Bedfordshire.
The words rat and sinking ship spring to mind.
My point isn't really about her as an individual, good luck to anyone who can find someone to pay them that kind of money
It's more about where the money she earns comes from - it's the same place the money to pay MPs comes from.
The salary Suffolk County Council is about to pay Andrea Hill would pay for four MPs, and as someone commented this morning, at least MPs do something useful.
Whilst the media gorge on a feeding frenzy of sprats in the form of MP's pay, it would appear that the big fat Mackerels swim free.
