Who does Roberts think he's kidding?

We'd just like to advise our reader to fear not about the sobriety of the Council leader when they read his comments in this utter fantasy. He's not drunk, and nor is off his trolley on Colombian marching powder, he's just doing what Greenwich Council does best and spinning a report which is not actually as rosy as it might seem.

The Council is not so much lying to you, but is instead being economical with the truth. Yes, it is true, these are Greenwich's best marks ever. What they don't acknowledge is that they're still in the bottom 25% of the country. Yes they've improved, but they've done so from a low base. And yet, the Council leader says utter crap like this
"We were awarded the top two marks for all the areas they looked at and received the top possible mark for our ambition. This shows we are providing high-quality services for everyone living and working here."
Chris, just stop it OK. We know you're reading this even if you do claim you don't use a computer anymore. This report does not show you are "providing high quality service for everyone living and working here", stop talking bollocks.

What it shows is that you're slightly less shit than you were, but you still remain shit compared to the other 75% of the country. Stop living in a fantasy world and stop treating us with utter fucking contempt. We're not fucking idiot mules you know, we have brains and we can see through your disingenuous wank.

Editors Note: Mr Roberts, clearly such intemperate language is inappropriate and as you would never sink to the level of aggressive swearing and/or intimidation we shouldn't either. As such the offending author has been severely reprimanded with a flogging in our cellar. We've also sent him to work for a week in one of our sweatshops in Burma. He has though been rewarded with a watch for expressing the correct sentiment at your weasel words.

They've got some brass neck.
How they can put out any statement other than "We are so sorry for being shite" beggars belief.
How the hell does getting a couple of marks for ambition show that they are providing high-quality services?
How do these people sleep at night?

Was the computer thrown out of a window in a fit of peak, perchance?

I note that the 'related links' at the bottom of the puff piece do not include the actual CPA Report!

The CPA is bad for the Opposition too - under 'areas for improvement' is this item:

Developing scrutiny further in order to systematically hold the executive of the
Council to account.

Also, apologies but I can't let the typo above lie, it is 'fit of pique'.

We didn't link to the report because we couldn't be arsed and were actually more concerned with pointing out the bollocks Chris was spouting.

We're not sure that it does mean much for the Opposition though. Scrutiny is controlled by the leading group. It is deliberately loaded and is, in our view, completely pointless.

There is no scrutiny and there is nothing than either the Lib Dems or Tories can do about it. The entire process is stitched up like a kipper.

This is why we have the absurdity of Cabinet meetings lasting 20 minutes where the Fuhrer reads from a piece of paper and everyone just nods all many of shit through like the Audit Commission's report which took a grand total of 45 seconds to pass through Cabinet.

We would have missed had we not been nudged by one of the other officers to pay attention.

By the 2010 local elections, Roberts will have been Leader of Greenwich Council for a decade. It's hardly been a decade of achievement, has it?

Is Labour really saying he's the best they have to offer in the way of leadership? Why aren't people in the Greenwich Labour Party both on and off the council organising his farewell do?

I'm not saying the Tories would fare much better, either the same or worse actually if the current evidence is to be believed, but mainstream parties treat the electorate with disdain like this at their peril. If Labour want the estates of Greenwich to become a breeding ground for the BNP because of the inability of detached councillors and the dysfunctional oafish leadership to hear their legitimate grievances then just carry on regardless.

On a separate note, this blog has slipped a little of late. Curb the profanity and the bad spelling, please.

To anonymous.
What would be wrong with the BNP taking a share of the vote if it is above board and democratic?
Or shouldn't democracy work for the likes of them?

I am a big fan of freedom of speech but the bad language demeans the reader and is no substitute for persuasive argument.
I want to challange the high council tax,the traffic congestion through greenwich,the lack of leisure facilities,the developers landbank on the brownfield site at North Greenwich which is still 80% empty after 7 years,and the dereliction in and around Woolwich.
