A faithful old dog.

I remain faithful to the cause (LGOwatch) only because Local Government Ombudsmen never cease to amaze me with their linguistic gymnastics, idiotic reasoning and perverse decisions.

Oh and not forgetting the way they suck up to councils, the bias, the injustice, the unwarranted delays, the overlooked evidence, the de-construction of complaints, the manipulated statistics, the manipulated survey results, the unaccountability, the failure to hold councils to account,......the list goes on and on......

It appears that Local Government Ombudsmen will stop at nothing to bury maladministration for their friends and ex colleagues in local government. Even if they make themselves look stupid in the process.

Now that's what I call loyalty.

As far as I am aware no other Ombudsman finds and reports such low levels of maladministration. Less that 1% of all complaints submitted to Local Government Ombudsmen are reported as maladministration. Even less lead to an appropriate remedy for the injustice suffered as a result of the maladministration. The evidence is clear, Local Government Ombudsmen prefer to bury rather than report council maladministration!
