The TaxPayers’ Alliance (TPA) are focusing on Croydon as part of their Town Hall Rich List Roadshow.

The TaxPayers’ Alliance campaign for lower taxes and against government waste.  Focus on value for money in public finances is something we desperately need in Croydon.

So good was the response to the street stall, we held on the 22nd June we plan to hold two more over the summer.

Croydon taxpayers are rightly surprised that 19 staff in the council are paid over £100,000, especially when compared to the service we receive. 

You might wonder with all these highly paid staff and councillors, if someone might have had the time to provide some scrutiny over the £10,000 of taxpayer money given to an ‘entertainer’ to defecate on stage.  Meanwhile Croydon’s Children’s Services Department is still rated Inadequate by Ofsted.

The TaxPayers’ Alliance Town Hall Rich List Roadshow street stalls will be in Addiscombe on Saturday 13th July and Selsdon on Saturday 7th September, both between 10:30am and 1pm.
