Kim Ryley, the highest paid Council Chief in Britain in 2009 is Shropshire Council’s Chief Executive. He also runs ”The Society For Council Chief Executives”, called Solace ….
(He’s taking the piss).
Champagne flowed at the £240-a-head black-tie dinner in a ballroom of the sumptuously restored Savoy hotel in London…The host, Kim Ryley, the £180,000-a-year head of Shropshire council, and president of Solace, the society of chief executives, said in his address that councils were “the most efficient part of the public sector”. Five days later his council said it would shut nine schools, on top of forecasts of 1,300 job losses.” –Sunday Times (£)
But not his own job apparently.
If local government’s the most efficient part of government, God help the rest. Efficient in what way, precisely? Finding nice jobs for a clubby network? and keeping in with Common Purpose, possibly?
Here is a 2009 Report about his former job as Chief of Hull City Council where he was the highest paid Council Chief in the land.
Yeah, that’s going to be a huge strain. They all had absolutely nothing to do, which is why they were closed.
OK I’m sure he’s got something between his ears, but is running a Council taking instructions from central government, and splurging largesse to one’s buddies, really so traumatic a task that it requires paying at the same level as the job of Prime Minister?
One bunch of socialists replaced with another determined to spend even more. Music to his ears no doubt.
You mean, it used to be justified?

Executive Kim Ryley, particularly as he dances to the tune of an entity by
the name of Greg Lance Watkins whom we know for a fact to be a friend of
paedophiles, whether or not he is actually one himself, although he does
hold convictions for firearms and GBH offences of which he appears to be
Certainly if Ryley is colluding with accomplices to paedophilia and other
such criminal low-life, surely neither Shropshire nor any other Council
should want him in post.
