Lib Dem councillor represents his ward – from Saudi Arabia

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the Lib Dems!)

A Lib Dem council leader is collecting £13,000 per year as a local councillor despite living and working in Saudi Arabia.

Councillor Paul Whittle is the Lib Dem opposition leader on Fareham Borough Council but instead of representing residents in his Fareham East ward he decided to take a £180,000 job more than 4,000 miles away:

According to Cllr Whittle, he can represent his constituents from half-way around the world just as well as from Britain because “he could be contacted via email and phone“.

I have a feeling that come the next local elections, Cllr Whittle’s constituents might think otherwise.


Please feel free to comment. And share. Thanks:
