According to the Sentinel, £26 million of contracts were handed out by the city council outside of the usual regulations.
S106 money from planning applications has been removed illegally, and placed in savings accounts where the interest could be creamed off by the city council.
6 council officers have been suspended, a 7th arrested and charged with contractual fraud and theft.
The city council is now undergoing its THIRD fraud investigation!
Joyhn van der Laarschot was brought in to the city council on an obscene salary of £200,000, to clean it up and get it back on track, yet for all the public money he's taking out of the city, things are getting worse, not better!
What the hell are we paying this man so much money for when he clearly isn't achieving what it was he was supposed to have achieved?
Why have none of these fiddling officers been sacked?
Why have none these incompetent officers been sacked?
Why have the police not investigated the missing money from the NSREC?
Why is this criminal and criminally incompetent behaviour been allowed to continue with no punishment?
Our city council, both officers and councillors, are not doing the jobs that they are paid to do, as is clear by the never ending list of financial bungles committed by this group of third rate thieves, cheats, unqualified idiots.
£26 million awarded in contracts without having to go through the tendering process. Planning applications granted on the say so of a single planning officer, deals done behind closed doors with iffy local businessmen and religious groups, and the covering up of financial irregularities by a city council supposed to be looking out for your best interests.
We should change the name of the Civic Centre to Wormwood Scrubs, the number of crooks it is home to!
This behaviour, this lack of respect to the people of this city, is not acceptable in any form, but you voters are the only ones that can change the system!
On polling day in May, vote out the Labourites, the Tories, and the Lib Dems, vote out the so called independents like Brian Ward, a man on a mission to line his own pockets, vote out all those who represent greed, selfishness, dishonesty, and let's give this city a shot at the prosperity it should be enjoying.
