Look at those payoffs which Mr Reasonable has already identified in his blog.
Look to Mr Reasonable's blog for the big financial picture.
Look to mine for the nitty gritty.

If you don't think that these officers are worth the money then go and see your Councillor and ask them what they are doing. I doubt the answer will be satisfactory but you will at least wake them up.
Do you earn more than £50,000 - look Mr Walkley has £49,842 paid by Barnet Council ( using our money ) just into his pension scheme in a year. Does this strike you as obscene ? Then do something.

Over a quarter of a million pounds for one man to leave Barnet Council. Does that sound a bit generous to you - was it legally necessary ? Mr Mustard is making it his business to find out and when he does you will read about it here.

Yours frugally

Mr Mustard
