Richard: Give Whelan the same consideration? What consideration???

You gotta love this article in the Camberley Eye today (https://thecamberleyeye.wordpress.com/2019/08/23/ceo-pay-you-couldnt-make-it-up/) and the statement from Richard Brooks, that Karen Whelan should get the same “fair treatment” that she has given others. And what “fair treatment” would that be??? What total hypocrisy Mr. Brooks…

How about Dawn Jeffers? When she didn’t agree with Whelan, she got run out of town, and was paid off by Whelan with Public money, of course with the requisite Whelan gagging order. She was so fairly treated she had a nervous breakdown and is still in care today over it…

How about Sarah Ruddock? She actually tried to blow the whistle on Whelan, was blackballed, and fired. She too was paid off by Whelan with Public money, of course with the requisite Whelan gagging order. She was treated so fairly that she attempted to commit suicide over it. Luckily she has moved to the West Country and is in recovery.

How about Sarah Greene? She supported Sarah Ruddock until she was threatened and bullied by Whelan, and then she too was paid off by Whelan with public money, of course with the requisite Whelan gagging order. She luckily only had a a short care episode…

Here is the letter that was posted to me a few days ago, why is Whelan not suspended pending investigation? And why has Brooks not called the Surrey Police in??? You the public need to put a stop to this insanity. While you are at it, demand that Brooks step down as well…

I bet you’d like one of these jobs…

Just how do you get one of these Council CEO Jobs?

Well, first you probably need to be a Solicitor, a Council one. Council lawyers know all the ropes in the legal system like how not to reply to Freedom of Information requests, how to bully without getting caught, how to bribe potential shopkeepers to come to your bankrupt mall while calling it an incentive package, and how to crush the competition. Oh and yes you need to know how to go out and buy the property and long term lease of a company going bankrupt and convince the Councillors and public of what a great deal it is…

The rewards? Massive… You can get yourself paid £190K per year, 20% more than the Prime Minister, all the while convincing the public that you actually have a harder job than him…  And not only that, you can get a £15K bonus for just showing up for work, how good is that???  But come on, that takes a lot of work all that mental energy going to conniving and covering up and cavorting with the public’s money, definitely a lot more fun than watching MTV…

The answer for the public?

Get the petition going to reverse this, but then she is banking on the fact that you are some combination of too lazy or too stupid to do anything about it… Please prove her wrong…

Broken Borough Councils-Part 4

So, this steadily growing blood-sucking bureaucracy has deprived you of your democratic election and representation rights, given you a behemoth of expense you didn’t ask for, co-signed you to a debt that can’t possibly be paid, given you a bunch of services that you could care less about, and not delivered on many of the things that they are required to do… Do you really want a 40 year old white elephant of a theatre that no one goes to and loses £500K/year? Do you really want a clapped out recreation centre to be razed by them to be replaced by an equally clapped out dysfunctional recreation centre that you aren’t going to use? Just keep remembering, they know what is best for you more than you do… Right??? Maybe not…

Fifth thing wrong: this is simple pure Socialism, you didn’t vote that in…

Now the people doing this to you, are getting paid a lot of money by you to do all this to you. The CEO of Surrey Heath gets paid more than the Prime Minister, as do most of the Council CEOs in the country. And how does that happen? Well, because you let them.  The fix? Petitions to fix each part and demands to get it done by those people you elected to represent you. Otherwise, get used to it, and remember what George Orwell said: some pigs are more equal than others…

Broken Borough Councils-Part 3

So, this whole “providing” situation has gone on swimmingly until it didn’t. Those 90 other things cost really a lot of money, and the central government has been ploughing through your tax money at a frightening pace.  So 5 years ago the Central Government basically said, hey, we will give you the money for what is statutorily required, but the rest is up to you… Central Government speak for “get lost”… You want a theatre? Run it at a profit and keep the money. You want a fitness and recreation centre? Great, run it at a profit and keep the money. And so it is with everything else… Main problem: the local government is totally incapable of running anything, much less at a profit, so there is no money in it.

Time to wake up and smell the coffee…

Third thing wrong: they are using “back door” means to pay for this

In short, the Surrey Heath and every other Council has drastically expanded the government without anyone asking them to, and now is going to demand that you pay for it. Could all the “extra” things be done by someone in the private or charity sectors? In a heartbeat.  So why don’t they let these guys do it? Simple, foundational to their beliefs are:

      1. They know better than you do what you need
      2. To allow things that they are not required to do, to be done by someone else would diminish their power, and it is all about power for people in the government

Fourth thing wrong: they stole your credit, and didn’t even tell you

Question Sound dangerously like Socialism? That’s because it is, and it came through your back door without you ever knowing about it… So, get back to the money, how is it that they are paying for it all? Well that’s the sweet part for them. At Surrey Heath they went out and borrowed £168M to buy retail property that supposedly generates rental income that is supposed to pay the bills for all this? Will it? don’t tell them that retail is dead… So, you have 2 problems here:

      1. They used your credit to borrow the money, you co-signed the loans. Didn’t know that? Well you did…
      2. The properties acquired have no chance to succeed. The result? The 86,000 people of Surrey Heath will have to split the bill between them, roughly £2,000 for every man, woman, and child…

But actually there is a 3rd problem too, the costs keep going up and the revenues are going down, and the investments are bad. Their solution? Borrow more money… The whole thing is just an elaborate Ponzi Scheme…

So what do you need to do: probably get a petition together to demand that they get out of every thing non-statutory, and when they don’t do it? Sue them… But they are banking on you being too lazy and too stupid to really do anything here…

The Winner of the Biggest Shag of the Residents Award This Month: Viv Chapman

So, a couple of years ago, Councillors Vivienne Chapman and Leader Moria Gibson decided to fix one of the 6 Statutory Services that Surrey Heath has to provide. A service that wasn’t broken, so they “fixed it”. They just decided that we the residents needed to be served by a bunch of incompetent morons who can’t get anything right collecting the trash. You have to ask yourself, how hard could it be? And who is going to pay for this shagging? Yes, you guessed it, you and me…

Do they ever miss any pickups in the St. Paul’s Ward for her and Dan Adams? Of course not… So, if your trash isn’t collected, bring it to Viv’s house and have her sort it out for you, her address is on the web site…
