Unsurprisingly, the Speaker’s vanity crèche in the old Bellamy’s restaurant in Parliament has turned out to be an expensive mistake. Cass Horowitz, a former researcher involved in trying to stop the original project back in 2010 has been number crunching:
“…there are currently 15 children attending it on a regular basis despite the fact it can cater for up to 40 children. These 15 children have six members of staff (probably the equivalent ratio to a five star hotel) and thus presuming a salary of 30k and including the loss of the original refurbishment, they are being looked after at £81,154 tax payer pounds each. In other words they’re probably the most expensive babies in Britain!”
When political correctness is at stake, who cares how much it costs!
