Darra Singh, our council’s Chief Executive, is profiled in the Society pages of today’s Guardian. He has been appointed to be the chairman of the government’s Commission for Integration and Cohesion.
At the last council meeting it was announced that Darra’s remuneration for this activity would be split between the Mayor’s charities and Ealing council itself. We pay Darra a whole heap of cash and I would rather he was fulltime really but I think that the commission will be well led.
By the way the only time I look at the Guardian is to look at how stupidly thick and expensive their public sector jobs pages are on a Wednesday. If public bodies were not pouring Â£100Ks a week into Guardian Society the paper would go out business tomorrow.
