|What RBK&C Officers Have To Do|
Private sector employees look to their boards of directors for mature, experienced leadership.
Employees in local authorities are no different. They too wish to be led by 'competents'. However, instead of reasonably well qualified leaders they are as often as not directed by councillors who,( and the Dame is going to be as tactful as possible), have little in the way of qualifications/business acumen.
So the Dame salutes that cadre of RBK&C officers who, against all the odds, manage to keep the Rotten Borough going, despite the best efforts of senior councillors to screw things up on a monotonously regular basis.
The Dame has cited over the months the so many idiocies perpetrated by Cockell and his crew: they need no repetition....
At this festive time of the year the Dame pays tribute to the competent officer class who 'Keep Calm And Carry On'.
How they must dread having to sort out the messes that Pooter Cockell and friends gets them into. And how angry they must get to see their budgets slashed whilst Pooter and friends like La Baronessa Ritchie continue to draw £120,000 a year plus allowances for doing what little they do supremely badly.
And worse they now have to looked forward to working within the appalling mess that it is the ill fated Tri Borough Arrangement.
Cllr Ritchie needs to resign with immediate effect, as does the utterly hopeless E. Campbell. The Dame cannot even begin reflect on the lunacy of promoting Cllr Feilding-Mellen to do a man's job.
Anyway, well done Borough officers who do their job with application and honesty. It is a pity that councillors cannot follow their example!
