The Taxpayers’ Alliance has said that residents in Luton “have every right to be angry that their money is being spent pursuing elected representatives who haven’t paid on time”.
The think tank’s campaign manager, Harry Davis, told the Herald & Post:
“Some may be in financial difficulty, in which case they should have the help and support afforded to others. But the rest should be leading by example and anyone who has failed to pay what’s due ought to have the guts to own up. This episode reveals a contempt for transparency and accountability at the heart of local government.”
