Who Farted?

You gotta admit, this is too bizarre for words… So, Richard and Charlotte resign because they say they don’t fit into the Conservative Group any longer, and then it comes out the next day that they were tossed out for not meeting the high moral standards of the Conservative group. Richard,  you are the leader for a total of 7 months, after drooling over the job as the deputy leaders for 12 years, and then you earn the ultimate spanking after only 7 months from this lot??? The standards of the Conservative group??? This same group where the Deach & Dan show are still there despite Dan being a convicted fraudster and serving time in prison for it… And the 2 of them throwing a big party for themselves at Pennyhill Park which we the taxpayers had to pay for…

Like so many things they do, this smells incredibly bad… Everything about this stinks… Richard, you were Moira’s right-hand girl for 12 years, and you said that you know nothing of this big payoff to Whelan? You were there at the Conservative group meeting in 2017 where you voted that Whelan should get no increase in her compensation, ever, I was there and saw it myself. And you are in the center of power and say you didn’t know anything? Do you actually think the voters are this stupid? You couldn’t make this up…

Richard, you are a liar and you smell bad…

Haven’t You Had Enough?

Alt textWe commend David and the guys at the Camberley Eye, for chasing down the shocking lack of transparency in local government and Surrey Heath Borough Council in particular. But isn’t enough enough? Ok, we know the Torys had to get through the election before blurting out the bad news. But your time is up, enough with the delays, stop covering it up and just get it out there…

Write your Councillor today and demand an end to this and an end to the total lack of transparency. This is our Council, and our money, it is us who pays them…

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…
