People like Karla who work for the blighters think we are mad to even ask the question so perhaps we can flush one of them out to give us an explanation.

SURREY County Council is advertising for five posts in its PR department, despite embarking on a round of cuts.

The jobs, which will cost the taxpayer around £160,000 a year, come at a time when up to 11 branch libraries and all the county’s mobile fleet face the axe as part of a series of cost-cutting measures.

Councils are absolute fraudulent sc*m - no other word for it - as they rip off the taxpayer, reducing services while building their own empires.

That wet idiot Cameron needs to get a grip on this.  How hard can it be to tell them no?

But perhaps these PR departments add value and are thus a cost saving to those who pay their council tax. At the moment we don't know if this is the case because nobody is yet willing to make the case. The closest anybody has come is Karla's assertion to the effect of, "doh, isn't it obvious? Only an idiot would ask such a question." To which I would reply that it is usually those who are classed as idiots who are the ones who point out that the emperor doesn't have any clothes on.

Still we shouldn't prejudge the issue.

Interesting article, Burt.

Thought this was especially typical:

Then there is the £45,000 a year internal communications manager role.

This person must “lead and inspire a team of three to deliver a fresh approach to internal communications” while another role, the internal communications officer, at £32,000 a year, “must use a range of communications channels to reach audiences”.


All Councils seem to be hell-bent on this type of nonsense whilst expecting local retailers and factories and to pay ever-increasing business rates. It's very depressing.

Depressing arley? Is it phuck, its absolutely rage inducing, one of the reasons so many small businesses are dealing in cash and other tax efficient methods.

Why should hardworking people fund this utter waste of time, money and resources?

I'm sorry to hear you get so enraged, Blackie. Perhaps you need to enrol on an anger management course. I wonder if there are any organisations near you that can offer a free course "using a range of techniques to put you at one with the world".Wink

Foreigners come to the UK to find work and it enrages you. Foreigners come to the UK and end up on benefits and it enrages you. Some of the indigenous don't have a job and it enrages you. Some of the indigenous do have a job in PR and it enrages you. You prefer to spend time with only white people, you want Scotland to "phuck off", you advocate isolation and separatism through us leaving the EU and on top of all that you're a losing gambler.

Karla,

Would you care to comment on the actions of Tory-controlled Surrey County Council, as highlighted by Burt's post at 12.01?
By:
Mister E
When: 11 Jan 12 14:51
The last edition of the County Councils Spin Magazine  was utterly nauseating.

On cost savings they seemed to expect accolades for doing the obvious, i.e. renegotiating with our suppliers, and working more closely with local councils.
Plus the patronising garbage on not wasteing food "Lovely Leftovers", and if you are going on long car journeys this winter wrap up, take a torch and a blanket.
Plus what the Council leader has been doing on your behalf; presenting a prize at a cycling race.

We are not all in this together all of the time money is being wasted like this.

As a matter of fact it is exactly what Tories were accusing Communist Russia and their satellites of doing, using outrageous propaganda methods at the expense of the public.
If any one of us buys ANYTHING, the advertising is paid for in the sale price, every day we are bombarded to buy this or that product and they use OUR MONEY TO ADVERTISE, but then the clever right wing will say that they always knew this, but really, DID THEY?
Most of the people who use this method are business people and this is why TORIES and NEW LABOUR, who were/are clones of Tories, the only people they fooled were the TORIES.

Bazzar if you had ever run a business selling something you would realise your sale will be very slow unless you advertise your products.
I have advertised and the cost came out of my profit.
I did not like spending this money but it is a catch22 situation.

What are councils selling?

How interesting. I was expecting chapter and verse or at the very least a battling rearguard action from Karla and yet the poster who most comments about playing the man rather than the ball chooses this of all moments to try to do a hatchet job of which Chopper Harris would have been proud. Unfortunately just as when Bestie left him for dead in the mud she is floundering. Again.

Once again I find myself imploring her to man up. God help her if her boss ever calls her in and tells her that he is thinking of replacing her with a tub of lard and to convince him otherwise. It would be like watching the yeh but no but chav on Little Britain. Lard wins by KO.

bizarre garbage from bazzar. 'accused' eh? finding a moral equivalent between council waste and the ussr propaganda war. i notice no attempt to argue with the point at issue. state lies are the very least of it. the ussr enslaved, imprisoned, murdered and dehumanised hundreds of millions for 50 years.their appalling crimes against humanity, and the almost comic level of lies and disinformation was aided by 'useful idiots' (lenin) on the left who wern't bothered by this, but were constantly raging against the u.s.

nobody was allowed to leave this giant prison (penalty for trying-death) yet inflential figures on the left were more interested in explaining away its grotesque distortions of the truth with lies of their own.  south africa or chile though; constant demos and vigils outside their embassies.  they were a vicarage tea party by comparison.

A row has broken out at a county council after its chief executive hired an "improvement director" on a £110,000 annual salary just days after announcing 3,000 job cuts.
Nottinghamshire County Council opposition leader Alan Rhodes is at loggerheads with chief executive Mick Burrows after he appointed Greg Michael, a former managing director of DHL in Denmark, to the newly created role.

Its sickening EO, re-employ karla and the other wastes of space delivering meals on wheels and pushing old people round parks. For the £80k there'll be plenty willing to do a proper job for £400pw (£20k).

we have people specifically employed to target smokers dropping butt ends of **** (not a nice habit) but a lot put them in bins
but these people are paid to stand and watch (I am not joking)
whilst across the road a bunch of boys get away with shoplifting - no one stopped them etc (usual crap) 
It is about what councils and police authoriteis spend their money on and undoubtedly there is NO relation to what local people might want. 

It is against the law to litter but I don't understand why civilians are being used for this and spending more money on it!!!??

There are two simple explanations. One is that they are incompetent nincompoops who don't know their arse from their elbow. Witness Karla floundering on here. The other is that if they spend all this money on shiit they reason that if essential services are then cut they can blame it on, "central government starving us of funds".

Head down? Coward? What an earth are you shrieking about? If you want an answer to the thread opened then simply visit the web site of your local council.I have no obligation nor inclination to respond to your every hysterical thread.  There is little point in me explaining anything to you as you never seem to understand what I write, this despite the fact I write in as plain English as possible and try to avoid long and complicated words simply to accommodate you.


On the plus side you appear to have recruited Dr Sheldon Cooper to your gang. Bless.

Do all councils have PR departments?

Of course they do, why an earth does this upset you so?


Anyone who responds so dogmatically, as if the questioner were an imbecile, is bound to be asked for clarification/explanation in support of their apparently blind faith.

It used to be the case that the figureheads of Local Authority Departments e.g. County Planner/Deputy County Planner, County Surveyor/Deputy County Surveyor, County Valuer/Deputy County Valuer, County Waste Disposal Officer/Deputy County Waste Disposal Officer etc etc ad nauseam, would deal with the press, Council members, Members of Parliament, local Neighbourhoods affected by particular issues, Community Leaders etc. These high-ranking officers didn't perform the daily executive functions themselves.

Nowadays these people are still in post but have the dubious assistance of a Public Relations machine acting as a sieve or conduit to manage, deflect or justify various issues. Please, why is it so obvious that every Local Authority needs this?

Just read that little beauty. She is advocating that I head off to my local council site so they can smear me with the usual bullshiit about what sterling work they do. LaughLaughLaughLaughLaughLaughLaughLaughLaughLaugh I look forward to her next inducement. Who knows what it will be? Buy sand from Saudi, those who know the business, ice from the innuit, Blair, my part in peace in the middle east or will she try top trump and request that I buy the collected works of Gormless Clown on how he saved the world? LaughLaughLaughLaughLaughLaughLaughLaugh

One thing is for sure in that they won't be telling us what a shiitload of money they waste on people who don't know what their job is apart from conning the gullible into thinking they are indispensible. Can't you get a real job on the bins or emptying colostomy bags for old people? You seem eminently suitable for that job. LaughLaughLaughLaughLaughLaughLaughLaughLaugh
