The Ombudsman issued a report today. The report makes it quite clear that the council did not agree with, or accept, an Ombudsman's recommendations. Which other Tribunal or Court allows a defendant to ignore their findings? Can you imagine a criminal saying to a judge, I am not serving the 20 years you decided I should serve because I don't agree with you! Where's the justice in that? This makes a mockery of administrative justice in the UK and that's why the system needs changing. Having said that I congratulate Mrs Seex on issuing a second report because that's something her predecessor avoided at all costs. Just a pity the complainant suffers either way.
