SIR - In respect of the article 'Revealed: pay packets of St Albans council bigwigs' (Herts Advertiser, June 25), Council leader Robert Donald said that the high wages and good benefits were needed to attract the "best and the brightest" people to work for the council.

Or perhaps it's just that the council making the appointments is itself so far from "the best and brightest".
