More news drifts in about this copper from Sheffield who doesn’t know where Easton is that’s been put in charge of marketing at the city council on a salary of just £140k a year.
A reader writes:
Why does Bistol City Council employ a deputy chief executive on £150k a year if he doesn’t read emails or any reports? It almost makes you nostalgic for Terry Wagstaff. At least he took the time to read reports and spoke from a basis of experience and understanding!
But why bother with experience and understanding when you can get someone to squander hundreds of thousands of pounds on complete and utter self-serving nonsense of no consequence to anyone?
Because today we learned that this deranged copper has now employed a personal communications guru by the name of Mark Fletcher. (Any news on sightings most welcome)
I wonder how much this latest peculiar escapade is costing the council?
But money well spent isn’t it? Just as the copper’s reputation deservedly crashes to near zero we learn he has paid good money for a Counts Louse superannuated communications fuckwit to manage the process for him. Ho, ho!
Maybe the copper would be better off with a plumber to fix the leaks?
The Blogger’s also learned that the council has now decided to employ headhunters – on a fat fee naturally – to search for a new Communications Director. None of the short listed candidates were apparently good enough to “reflect well on me,” the copper recently told a group of sniggering officers.
We’ve also been told the copper’s convinced that if they get the communications right, people will start to love the council. So prepare for an onslaught of rubbish public sector”communications” then.
Because, of course, we’re all so fucking stupid we’re not going to notice the third rate services the copper is actually providing to us at our expense once those crappy glossy leaflets start coming through the door and his communications man Mark starts delivering his flowery little press releases to the local press are we?
Does the copper not realise we’re Bristolians? Therefore we don’t have shit for brains like he does. Can someone just sack this money wasting plonker now please? For all our sakes.
More court news tomorrow …
