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 2

In the last post, we looked at the two things you as voters could do that would fundamentally change the system: 1-establish term limits, and 2-change the party leadership stranglehold

Part 2 goes to the heart of the democratic process. So, shortly after the end of World War II, the prescriptions for how Councils were to work was developed and put into law in the UK. So, there are essentially 3 levels of government in the UK: Borough Councils, County Councils, and MPs.  Each has distinctly different functions by mandate from the Central Government. Borough Councils have the following statutory functions:

  1. Taking out the rubbish
  2. Running all parts of planning
  3. Running Licensing (all forms)
  4. Providing housing
  5. Running elections
  6. Assessing and collecting Council Taxes and Business Rates

Second thing wrong: doing what they aren’t chartered to do

And what do Borough Councils do other than this? Loads… As time has evolved, they have simply decided to do things like Parks & Recreation, Meals on Wheels, Citizens Advice, and literally dozens of other things…  All worthy causes, but not as part of the government.  So, statutorily, 6 things, but in reality they do more than 90 things. Why? Because they could, and seized on the idea of doing it without anyone really knowing what it meant to do this. And, stupidly, the Central Government said, hey we’d better help pay for these things… The basic premise was that we as the government know what you need and we will provide it for you. And most amazingly, we the voters went along with that… Why? Because we just that was how it worked, but guess what, that isn’t how it has to work.

There are dozens of organisations, both community and otherwise who would take over all 90 of these things and run them ten times better at a fraction of the cost. And not only that, do we need a third rate theatre that costs a £500K/year loss?

So what do you need to do?

Demand from your Councillor to know exactly why they do anything other than what is statutorily required… They are relying on you to be too stupid and too lazy to do it…

It’s Official, The Torys are Shagged…

So, here’s the results from the European Elections posted last night. Whilst we thought Farage and friends would do pretty well, not a total decimation of the Conservative Party…

Who would have imagined even a year ago that the Conservative Leafy suburbs of Surrey would totally turn their backs on decades of Conservative rule? And they didn’t just lose, they were thrashed. Farage and Co. got 3 times as many votes, and the Lib Dems got twice as many as them. And this is the district of Michael Gove? He who would be Prime Minister? Time for the door…

Could Councillor Deach Stoop Any Lower?

So, the local Facebook Camberley Chat is dominated by nothing other that the picture Councillor Paul Deach posted of one of our most popular residents Stefan Kenson… This is what Councillor Deach thinks of the residents, shocking.

Stefan had the unmitigated gall to find unacceptable the Councillors actions at stiffing the Council for an Mayor Dan Adams Banquet extravaganza and night out at Pennyhill Park, to the tune of £100/plate, and all the rest… As always, their only actual problem is that they got caught…  The public needs to demand that every penny is repaid to the taxpayers.

At a time when Council Tax is rocketing up, how could anyone, much less  a Borough and County Councillor both bully Stefan and post this sort of graphic? Of course, this is bringing the Council into shocking disrepute, but will they find it that way? Of course not, it will be brushed aside…

Here’s the picture of him nominating the  current mayor Dan Adams. At the time we knew he was a serial tax-dodger, who, as deputy mayor had to be sued by the Council to pay his tax,  Later we found out that he also is a convicted fraudster who served time in prison for it. Only when backed against the wall did he admit it… What a great representative of Surrey Heath, especially for the businesses? No wonder the Surrey Heath Business Expo was cancelled this month due to lack of interest… Clearly these guys deserve a raise…

How can the Tory Party accommodate such tasteless bullying by Councillor Deach? Campbell Mitchell, how can you accept this?  John May, how can you approve of this?  Michael Gove, aren’t you proud of your Tory Councillors?  This is too outrageous for words…
