2.12. Based on the skills and experience demonstrated by these candidates, the
recommendation from the Sub-Committee was that the following
candidates should be appointed:
o Board Director Localities – Mr Matt Gott
o Board Director Transformation & Strategic Projects – Mr Hitesh Patel.

I am constantly amazed at the 'unswerving confidence' SBC place in Mr Patel. I am sure he is a very nice man but that's about it. From his being the 'accidental director' through his period as the man who 'knew nothing' and could never be relied upon to 'provide an answer' he has demonstarted none of the qualities associated with such an august position. I suppose he knows an awful lot and therefore his knowledge demands he be kept 'close'.

I don't have any truck with the 'Nu-Conservatism' being delivered by Rod Bluh and cheered on by the Kohima's of Swindon.  It's fast-acting, corrosive and tries to pit colleagues, neighbours, house owners and tenants against each other in whatever combination is needed to 'deliver' whatever the political objective of the week happens to be.

Not Me Geoff, Im, waiting for next year and the fall of Bluh and his council, then youll be a councillor, no more house building, but I dont know what will happen about the previous Labour core policy of what was 30,000 new houses in the area, no more waiting for anything to be built, no more waiting for any problems to be solved, cant say what the the new council tax will be, going on past records, and we might even see Ms Snelgrove featured in the council life.. happy days..... If you read previous entries, I have said he is a mistake but no matter, as long as they slag the likes of me off, it gets the subject changed again doesnt it......,  :2funny:

Yep, but based on it's not what you know,  but who you know, you should be alright Kohima, for geting your allotment stuff done!
Oi! Listen mush. Old eyes, remember? I’ve been around the block a few times. More than a few. They’ve knocked down the blocks I’ve been around and rebuilt them as bigger blocks. Super blocks. And I’ve been round them as well.  The Doctor (Night Terrors)

Its one of the myths on here Muggins, everybody assumes I know everybody and so can do or say what I want in support of the likes of bluh, pop round some time and Ill show the emails,letters that I have sent to him and others, most of them with no reply, I can do my gardening when I want, its just getting the others to do what they promise or say they will , and surprise, wont do...  and of course like some, I cant do name dropping or the likes of "when I go to see so and so".....

Hello old friends ? well maybe some anyways !!.
Once upon a time , there was a bitter twisted old sh...t, who decided that his own power and authority, backed by the owner of the clownculator and an associated other bunch of pond life, would proceed to put lives at risk of vulnerable elderly people and place 64 talented and committed staff on the dole. He promised safety of there jobs and savings to SBC
He picked a fight, he went further and slagged off individuals, he went further and avoided questions and blatently lied.
As i said , he picked a fight. He misunderstood that both the people he was dismissing and slagging off and the people in his council ward had a voice.
He seemed a might perturbed when they had the temerity to not believe he had the best interests of the vulnerable to mind in his actions.
So he attended council meetings and scowled when service users spoke against his plans.
His beleaugered mentor chose to passify and shake hands with the non believers on his behalf,even denying a service user to be heard in the process.
The leader of the gang looked down gloomily at his underling but defended him to the last.
But still the old sh..t remained resolute that certain Union members had no right to campaign, but strangely he didnt feel confident enough to debate the subject on live local radio , with someone he believed to be his nemisis. Instead he chose to launch grievances against that person and to single her out for collecting signatures on a petition.
The old sh..t soon decided that democracy was not for him,and tried to smear and ridicule those against him.
Sadly , the old shit won the day,and the vulnerable became more vulnerable and the dedicated became jobless or exploited.
However, karma sometimes comes round quicker than we think, and the old sh..t was visited with the same outcome as the people he had just sent up the road. How cruel the ballot box ?
Maybe his fate would require the services of the people he had just sacked, a dotage with plenty of time to consider his great victory? or maybe just time to dribble down his chest ?
But low and behold , the old sh..t is still alive and kicking. a pillar of Swindon society brandishing a pen like a sword in the Adver.
It appears he comes to vanquish the old foe?
Bring it on old sh..t .
What council ward are you planning to crawl back into.
Memories are longer than you think, and passions remain as strong,
Beware when you choose to pick a fight as comebacks rarely smell of roses , and old foes may have gotten wiser and stronger.

Of course it refers to Mallinson

Interesting re-reading this thread,  considering the eventual fate of Patel and Gott...
Oooooh Matron!
