Bristol City Council has admitted lying to the Local Government Ombudsman

Bristol City Council has admitted giving false information to a Government watchdog during a dispute with a persistent complainant.

The council unilaterally declared artist Graeme Robbins vexatious after he repeatedly complained about controversial temporary traffic lights outside his home.

It wrongly told the Local Government Ombudsman Mr Robbins had bombarded it with more than 300 emails during its attempts to get him off its back.

My comment: It is no surprise that a council has lied to the Local Government Ombudsman. let's face it they do it all the time. What is surprising is that the Local Government has for once actually reported the fact. However, very little appears to have been done to punish those who lied.
