Local Council c***s

Recommended Posts

Willie Young :lol:

Doesn't surprise me at all, mind; it's local government, it's Aberdeen City Council, and it's Scottish/Aberdeen (delete as appropriate) Labour.  The holy trinity of jobs for the boys, low-level corruption and incompetence.

And what does a deputy lieutenant actually do?

 

 

I imagine being paid will be high on the agenda.

Aberdeen have a Provost called Barney Crockett?  Minter.  :lol:

It not just great names it their backgrounds too.

Prior to Barney the city had Len Ironside, now ex-councillor and ex-wrestler, more Mick McManus than Hulk Hogan.

Aberdeen City Council have been criticised after giving Uber a licence to operate in Aberdeen after what could be described as a less then thorough public consultation.  They said there were no objections so it didn't need to go to a committee.  The only public notice of the application was place at the bottom of an office window.

I've used Uber before in Glasgow and prefer it to the normal taxis so getting the option to use them in Aberdeen is something I'm open to but this doesn't make either Uber or Aberdeen CC look good.

Can’t sympathise too much with Aberdonian taxi drivers. Used to come off the rigs where you would be picked up sometimes in a bloody 7 series, their rates were far higher than I was used too and then they started to plead poverty when the oil price slumped. Probably shouldn't have spunked it on a high end BMW lease when a skoda would have sufficed.

Appreciate this isn't local to many P&Bers and isn't *technically* a local council rather an elected Mayor but - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-merseyside-42626014

Valuable use of public resources IMO.

Bizarrely, this is local to me and I was going to post this myself. I'd argue there's bigger things to worry about in the city rather than a transfer of the team you support.
