They didn't answer the pertinent questions to Councillors when this whole damn fool scheme was rail-roaded through, by pushing an impossible timeline in front of a new Council on its first cycle of meetings, just so as Maggie could get it off her desk before she went after the big cheese's job. So why on earth would us plebs expect or believe they'd answer them to the likes of us.

Good point, they're often well-known for masking the truth.

 

Come to think of it, both this thread and masking the truth seem to have a lot in common.

Yes. Do ask the council questions.  They are best prepared to give you the best answer, and potentially, the answer you need. My introduction was simply to open the conversation.

I'm not a fan of keeping on doing the same thing and expecting a different outcome - I tend to agree that doing so is the perfect definition of a state of mind that's somewhat undesirable, to most folks at least.

 

Over the years I've asked the SIC a number of questions, and virtually without exception they have either take the patronising 'politicians' 'out' of responding with a 'I think the question you actually wanted to ask.....' type answer, or most often, just ignoring you until you go away.

 

Until and unless that changes, I'll be doing my thing, and they can be doing their's, and if they don't like it they can go spin on it, even if they have to do it as much for as long as they wear out their collective anal cavity.

Except they DON'T reply to the pertinent questions!

I noticed a pile of something called "BinGrips" in Jewson's all dusty and unwanted... perhaps they'll get them sold now!

The new bins have just been delivered to me. Wonder how long it will take for them to blow away as there is no way I will tie or fix them to anything to hold them in place. That's the S. I. C's job. After all, it is covered by our council tax payments.

Did ya not just report them as lost property to the police then?  You actually accepted delivery of them? ;-)

I didn't accept delivery of them. They were left outside the house and they're still sitting there.

They've been delivered to you, you know they are there, if they blow away into someone elses property because you've been too childish to do anything with them you will be liable and you've done so publicly on the internet.  You dozy, childish pillock.

Says it all. Do as you're told while happily pandering to them.

I wonder who actually came up with this idea, and is inflicting it upon us? Was it the council, or was it the government?

^ A bit of both, along with the EU and god knows who else. By the time each one has stirred the pot and added their own cockups to the mix, you end up with the pointess and virtually unworkable behemoth clusterfurk we have being ladeled up to us plebs....

 

Its the downside of 'maximum government', aka. 'too many cooks spoil the broth'. We need rid of some of the layers, so that those making the plans and decisions are also having to tolerate the outcome of them first hand, instead of all the hiding behind and finger pointing by one layer at some other layer to get themselves off the hook. A national and a local government worked well enough pre '73, and the sooner we get back to that the better.

 

The KISS principle has long since been discarded and forgotten. (That's the 'Keep It Simple, Stupid' principle, for the ignorant).
