'Appointments to the office of Commissioner shall be made by Her Majesty on the recommendation of the Secretary of State after consultation with [such persons as appear to the Secretary of State to represent authorities in England or, as the case may be, authorities in Wales to which this Part of this Act applies], and a person so appointed shall, subject to subsection (6) below, hold office during good behaviour'.
Although I doubt she will actually remove them from office, I have collected enough evidence to make someone in Government, particularly the Secretary of State, think twice about scrutinising them somewhat closer than they have ever been scrutinised before.
Like all letters to the Queen, Government, MPs and the press and blogs, websites and forums, individually they may appear to have a negligible affect but together they can and eventually will make a difference. The current corrupt system of administrative justice must be improved and that process can only begin when all ex council chief executive officer Local Government Ombudsmen are removed from office.
Message to all those who have suffered injustice at the hands of the Local Government Ombudsman: I am doing my bit, are YOU doing yours?
