Telegraph reveals council chief exec spending

This morning's Telegraph has blown the whistle on some of the lavish spending of Council bosses presiding over the deepest cuts since the Second World War.

Records of spending at 340 local authorities obtained by the newspaper show some bosses are running up tens of thousands of pounds in expenses and credit card bills on top of their six-figure salaries.

There is no mention of any Manchester spend and the paper seems reluctant to release all its information but the headlines say it all

Some regularly flew first class and stayed in exotic destinations such as Shanghai, Tuscany and San Francisco. They spent thousands of pounds on tickets to stadium concerts and prestigious sporting events, and even used public money to buy suits, iPads and vintage wine.
