The definition of competent?

Knowing if someone is still alive or if they sadly are no longer with us, that would be a pretty definitive test as to if an organisation is competent or not?

Following on from an email conversation that we’ve just been forwarded it would appear that in that case Greenwich Council have failed this test, as a message was sent out to large number of people informing them that sadly someone had recently passed away, after a few hours a second message was sent out to say that in fact they had not passed away.

Following on from this, the Lib Dem Leader asked for an explanation, Cllr Chris Roberts then weighed in to say that “mistakes can be made” but “the matter is now closed” without an explanation. John Austin MP for Eirth and Thamesmead, replayed to say that an explanation should be given. Cllr Chris Roberts still has not given an explanation but has at least, but perhaps for the first time said, that any blame is his.

If anyone has any more details on how this mistake happened then do share. However we will not be naming the poor individual directly affected by this, as given this momentous mistake they have already suffered enough. We do feel however that those responsible for such a mistake should at least come clean as to how it happened.

They really are completely incompetent and have only air in their heads. My commiserations go to the member of staff who had been unwittingly 'killed off'.

The leader of the ranch just isn't up to the job at all is he....mind you neither are his cronies.

It wasn't a member of staff who was "killed off", it was the spouse of a Labour councillor.
