Is that an audible cheer we hear coming from the Council House?
The Blogger’s received this email from so many sources that it seems like half the council’s staff are just sitting about waiting for senior officers to finally do the decent thing and fuck off out of our lives:
There it is. Not even six months of The Blogger yet and they’re already throwing in the towel. Not that Gurney would have a towel to throw in as he’d have privatised it two years ago with the help of a series of management consultants. Perhaps he could throw in the receipt for the towel instead? Along with the bill for the consultants and a ‘best value’ review proving that privatised towels when thrown provide an improved customer experience of up to forty per cent?
You’ve got to admire his front though haven’t you? “There is no right time to leave,” the £130k a year waster claims. Maybe not. But there is a lucrative time for him to leave, which is after he’s served at least three years on this, his most excessive salary yet. He will then receive his very generous public sector pension at that finishing salary rate.
And how long has Pig Fucker Gurney been in Bristol? Why three years of course. What a coincidence…
As for the hopeless case’s achievements, amounting to “five Beacon Council awards and numerous Chartermarks”, what can we say? You’ve earned the right to put a few shitty, meaningless logos on your notepaper. Whoopee!!! What a useful life you’ve led.
But no mention of the mounting chaos he’s left our schools in is there? Especially the load of semi-private city academies that have randomly cropped up on his watch that in turn have created the multi-million pound half-empty rebuilt new PFI schools currently being given away to right wing religious nutjobs while we foot the bill for the next 25 years.
Then there’s that extra £6m Gurney and his overpaid sidekick Heather Tomlinson blew on the “flagship” Redland Green School. We don’t see any little logos on letterheads representing these multi-million pound balls-ups do we?
No mention either from Gurney about social services. What about the multi-million pound debt run-up there on his watch? No mention of scrapped day care services, scrapped home care services or the fact that the concept of care has now totally disappeared from Bristol’s Social Services altogether.
In fact what is it that this clown’s supposed to have achieved? Is there now a charter mark available for bending over and being boned up the backside on a regular basis by big business property developers?
Perhaps The Blogger could be the first to tell Pig Fucker Gurney to fuck off back to Hampshire or Berkshire or wherever it is he came from and to please not bother coming back? (He could even spend his retirement in the shires campaigning for road charging to keep chavscum off the road so he and the missus can get to Tescos in Winchester a bit quicker)
He was overpaid, underperforming and nobody here ever even wanted him – except for a few stupid Labour politicians because they thought he was more stupid than them. . . Which they might have been right about. . .
And finally; a piece of bad news: apparently Helen Holland is “plan[ing] for a seamless transition to a new Chief Executive.”
God help us. What have they got in mind for us this time?
