It loves to witter on about corporate and social responsibility, but the Dame is minded of the great Doctor Johnson's observation on honesty and spoon counting( no, Palmer, you ignorant fellow: you would not understand!)
The Dame may not be politically aligned with Cllr Dent Coad, but she shares her views about treating people with respect. Her blog on conditions at Wormington Green is truly heart rending. The idea that children are having to be bought up in such conditions should shame us all. Please read her blog HERE
At the same time take a look at the non executive directors who lead this miserable organisation HERE
The chairman, Richard Brown CBE should be thoroughly ashamed to lend his name to such a rubbish outfit.
Last year, Brown was asked by ministers to look into the failings that led to the collapse of the franchise competition for the West Coast Main Line. Maybe he should take time to look at the failings of Catalyst.... which he chairs....
Other non exec's include senior people in banking: they would not allow their dogs to live like this.
Smug Heneage Stevenson of Mountgrange is also a Nodding NED
But the object of our anger should be the directors with hands on responsibility....to call themselves professional demeans the understanding of the word 'professional' LEADERSHIP TEAM!
Rod Cahill, the boss, has been described as a thoroughly nasty piece of work, rude, bullying, and 'misrepresenting'.
However, he is not, the Dame says, any relation to the late Joe Cahill, the Provo IRA Chief of Staff.
The 'moustachioed one' likes to pretend he speaks for the housing association sector....if true, one can only pity the sector.
Here are some scary images of parts of Wormington Green....not for sensitive stomachs.
