If this is true about the state of affairs then Cllr Paget-Brown, the current Leader, needs to make a plan. The longer he leaves things the more difficult it will be to recover the situation.
Unfortunately this has happened right under PB reign, he hasn't smelt any of the rats right under his nose who have lied about what is happening and created an illusion that it's all in the name of transformation. He needs to get a grip, speak to some of the older officers who have left to find out the truth, they will be easy to contact because other local authorities snatched them up due to their expertise! That's of course if he really wants to do something other than a church hall roadshow with staged questions for residents.
Indeed... How many 'REAL' people ever attend these 'Chats with Nick'?
I attended one once. If a resident asked a pertinent question, NPB's "minders" instantly hushed them up and the charade moved on.Grotesque.
Which confirms that not only has he no idea what's actually happening, he now chooses to ignore it. A disgrace, considering how hopeful residents were that he could bring about real, transparent change for residents. Instead he is responsible for the eradication of good services and a council infrastructure that was the envy of the country. Of course the excuse will be lack of funds but the truth is they are paying more for their 'interim' staff who are in fact consultants earning £500 plus per day. They cannot recruit experienced people to do the job properly. Hornton street is a consultants heaven.
