completely corrupt council
Corrupt council, corrupt government, corrupt politicians.
Laughed when I read the report that Robert Jenrick was thinking of taking charge. Sit next to him at a swanky dinner for 10 minutes and you'll find a tax bill of tens of milions disappear.
Majority of people running local authorities are civil servants anyway. I'm sure that there are some bad eggs on the council (and most councils) but I'd imagine the most effective way for them to be dealt with is for the police to amass evidence and if found prosecute them and replace councillors, or mayors, with other locally elected people.
Last I heard there was one person on the council who had been arrested so until more are then there can't be enough evidence for wholescale corruption.
Be bad news if the Everton project is involved in all of this though. As much as I'd laugh at their stadium plans going up the swanny it is still an area that would benefit from development and the jobs etc that would go alongside it.
