Tameside council deserves a nomination.
This is something of a personal one for me because I happen to live just inside the border of this Labour run shit hole.
I have many reasons for nominating Tameside council, but I’ll stick with just one for now. Today, (Sunday 6th September) I read in the Mail that despite have a shiny new £43 million office building, situated in the borough capital of Ashton-under-Lyne, not one of the one thousand cunts who infest it have returned to their place of work.
Well actually, that’s not ENTIRELY true. Because while building the offices, the council decided to close the town’s library, situated in a beautiful Victorian building, and tack on a rather pathetic new library which is much, much smaller.
About four or five staff were there when I took my mother. Out of one thousand. They also did the same with the library in the town closest to me, Hyde. They shut the Victorian library in which it had been situated, and moved into a couple of rooms at the old town hall (which is also yet to re-open).
Tameside councils chief executive, Steve Pleasant (salary: £201,000) has posted a photo of his slippers, so I guess he’s not even slightly bothered that local taxpayers are not getting value for money from their employees. He’s also claimed that it hasn’t caused any disruption to services.
Well as I said, libraries are a service, and as of typing, Ashton library is the ONLY one in the borough currently open right now. So that claim is a bare faced lie. I won’t mention the length of time that the local tip was closed, and the road it was on turned into a temporary one system, because the council wrongly thought it would be overwhelmed.
Anyway the fact is, with proper precautions, there is no reason why at least half of council staff can’t return to work in the office that Tamsiders spent £43 million on. Tameside council, you are cunts.
