‘One Council’ approach:
Local authority management in the high paranoid style. Characterised by rigid hierarchy and impenetrable bureaucracy and notable for its endless public relations gimmicks and the use of unaccountable private sector CONsultants as key managers and decision-makers. Features include factionalism, in-fighting, division, confusion, chaos and freakish communication breakdowns. Great for empire building! See also divide and rule.
‘Banksy’- a Bristolian who was once innovative, but who has been doing the same old thing for years.
Ex- “What went wrong with Ashton Court Festival”?
“Oh, the organisers were a bunch of Banksys'”.
