Waveney council attack

AM I alone in expecting some message of contriteness from Mr Bee and his team of elected Waveney district councillors?

Mr Bees' recent press statements suggest that the group is in complete disassociation from the recent events.

AM I alone in expecting some message of contriteness from Mr Bee and his team of elected Waveney district councillors?

Mr Bees' recent press statements suggest that the group is in complete disassociation from the recent events.

The councillors are major contributors to the problems of Waveney having been variously described as inadequate, ailing and failing.

It must be cause for great concern, that as a body, they appear to step back from events as though they were not a significant contributor or in any way responsible for the debacle.

Waveney councillors, after all, appointed Marie McLean and Glen Garrod, and also approved contracts that assured maximum payoff for failure.

Among aspiring chief executives Waveney must be seen as an easy touch and a laughing stock.

Waveney does not need a 2.5-day-a-week chief executive; it needs a structured management team with power to revoke cosy contracts and make necessary changes.

To quote Oliver Cromwell: “It is not fit that you should sit here any longer … you shall now give way to better men.”
