In order to salvage something would it not be worth getting rid of the District Auditor? Or is that yet just another sinecure role, like the WBC standards committee. Not much point paying for a blind, mute watchdogs.


Blind mute watchdogs that are from the same cosy little club of those they are supposedly auditing/regulating? cool.gif

I see Swift Half has been elected Chairman of Greenham Parish and has stated :

"Taking the chair Mr Swift-Hook said he was confident that the council would make “good” decisions going forward."

I suppose their is always the chance that he may be able to make a good decision after all his time of making bad ones over the years? rolleyes.gif

One point which comes across in the report is that the working group seemed to ride roughshod over any even minor challenges, demonstrating behaviours that could be construed as bullying! Rather odd that the LibDems haven't censured anyone yet!

Just had a look t the Control Tower report - it's here if you haven't seen it.

It's quite miserable reading, but the thing that jumped out at me was that it was published January 2016 and it would seem as though the council have sat on it for a year.

I see from the council's web site that another councillor has abandoned ship too.

It would seem the council have withdrawn things from the 'plan' that might mean it won't meet HSE requirements anyway.

They've also economised by decided not to fit it out as a cafe and not to do anything of the interpretation so it won't even function as a cafe or museum!
