Predictably that excellent warning by a resident on the unforeseen perils of the Tri-borough arrangements has evoked nil reaction from our councillors: most are too terrified to put their heads up over the parapet or lack commercial expertise so have not the foggiest idea how service merging should be implemented anyway....
But The Dame has received, via her top secret email 'drop box' an interesting perspective from a senior officer. He won't reveal the Council for whom he works, but he makes a broad point applicable to senior 'coalface officers' throughout the three councils.
Mr xxxxx tells The Dame that no outside research company has carried out selective research amongst officers to get feedback on how things are going.
He remarked, “ if we were a commercial organisation implementing this sort of radical reorganisation senior(below director level) and mid ranking staff would be continually consulted and involved.
No surprise there then...and an interesting comment from another officer just posted on the Tri-Borough piece
