The week that ended....19 July 2015
On Don't Blame the Council TV programme, the council, i.e Chief Executive and Leader have said they are carrying out an internal review and they are looking at emails to see how it was aired in that way? For me wrong set of questions. First of all I don't believe for one minute the Chief Executive or the Leader didn't know about it. I would guess they signed it off. Now the council has suspended another officer of the council. Some are saying scapegoats. The leader and Chief Executive must be included in any investigation otherwise if they are not and were to blame they will simply cover up their failings and accuse others.
Secondly, it is important that the people of the borough find out the truth and some mickey mouse white wash is not allowed to be carried out.
Finally, what is equally important is that the Council find out not how it was aired in this way but why the Council has been allowed to become like this? It is the leaders fault - the people at the top, not the normal work force.
If an independent investigation is not ordered then the Leader and Chief Executive must go. It is a disgrace that they have run the council in this manner!
