WHY should anybody be surprised at council bosses grabbing big salaries? (Warrington Guardian, April 11).

Because a majority of people would pay themselves greatly inflated wages if they could make up their own pay scales.

My problem is how can Warrington council bosses pay themselves first world wages while providing third world services in social and health care, roads and traffic policies, community based recreational facilities and not cracking down on spiralling antisocial behaviour?

You tell me.
