Carl Froch on NCC Payroll (no really)

Carl Froch is to be paid £32,000 by NCC and others for a "programme of commercial and community activities".

The 'others' are the 'Crime and Drugs Partnership' and 'One Nottingham' who of course have nothing to do with NCC at all. NCC's share is £16,000 split between 'Communication and Marketing' and 'Community Protection' directorates.

The decision was made by Graham Chapman as the 'Resources' portfolio holder. For our £32k we get 32 hours of Mr Froch's time. You can put your calculators away, I've already worked that out to be £1000 an hour.

Apparently CF will also wear a 'Proud of Nottingham' dressing gown before his fights. So its not just library workers forced to wear new uniforms. They really must, MUST get JoCo to pose in a replica.

Um, is this really morally sound when there are proposals to make hundreds of workers redundant? 32 hours of Carl Froch or a year's worth of social Worker? You decide...

Update; Monday's Evening Post catches up with NCCLols.

Far too much to say on this one to confine it to a brief comment. Will offer my thoughts in my own blog later.

Full marks to you for uncovering it. Not seen it in the Evening Post yet... but I'm sure Stephen will be contacting them soon (after he's milked the cows).

Sadly, the cows will all be sold tomorrow. The end of 100 years of dairy farming in Bulcote. And all in the name of Severn Trent's profit disguised as environmental sustainability ...

Bit late to the party aren't you Stephen? Were your lords and masters hoping no-one would notice this one?
