Another tale of two Ombudsmen

Recently the Local Government Ombudsman's office in Coventry found a Council guilty of maladministration because they didn't follow their own policy guidelines. However, the Local Government Ombudsman's office in York recently told me that a Council doesn't have to follow their own policy guidelines because they are merely guidelines and not a legal requirement.

Funny how two Ombudsmen supposedly doing the same job in different parts of the country hold opposing views.

Looks like we now have 'post code' LGO justice as well as 'post code' health care and 'post code' care for our senior citizens.
