IF Malvern Hills District Council's chief executive is made redundant his statutory payout would be £12,000.

But our political leaders want to enhance his payout to give him an extra £100,000 at least.

Whilst I am quite happy for people to have a whip-round and buy him a clock or a bench, I fail to see why us residents are being forced to have a whip-round to buy him a Ferrari or a holiday home abroad.
