No remorse

No remorse

No remorse

First published in Letters by

MOST of us are watching daily with disbelief as, due to the excellent investigative skills of The Press, more details of this incompetent York administration are revealed.

It’s like watching a perpetual car crash in slow motion that you’re powerless to influence. A Labour majority and City of York Council senior management see to that.

Lendal Bridge is an ongoing financial disaster with coverage in national newspapers, with multi-million readerships, pouring embarrassment on this fine city of York.

Both James Alexander and Dave Merrett have catastrophically proved that they possess none of the skills to do their jobs competently. In the real world they would have been sacked some time ago, not asked to resign.

Recent ICO rulings have proved that there is a pervasive culture of secrecy and a disregard for public accountability for which Kersten England, who earns as much as a government cabinet minister, should now question her own position.

Yet there is no sense of remorse, humility or cognisance from any of the above. With these people at the helm, there will be more disasters to come and York residents will be the unfortunate recipients.

Nick Love, Deangate, York.

If the people of York, especially Holgate have any sense of justice then this matter should be resolved next May. Get out there and vote them out.
How to get rid of the incompetent and overpaid Mrs England is another matter. I doubt she will be subject to a vote. What does the contract say?

''MOST of us are watching daily with disbelief as, due to the excellent investigative skills of The Press,''

Hahahahahahahahahaha
haha. Hilarious. Let me fix that for you:

''MOST of us are watching daily with disbelief as, due to the Press uploading plenty of articles about the council to feed the right wingers, who've hijacked the comments threads.''

The Press are laughing at you all. Yes, the council have made some terrible decisions, and there's no doubt the voters will vote accordingly next year - But the Press wind you lot up no end, just to get you all clicking on articles the 20-odd times a day that you do.

They upload anything for you all to post your hate. (See the article on the lock being removed from the bridge). It's even willing to compromise its own Stamp Poverty Out campaign for cheap headlines about costs.

LOL!
Well, it was and still is the consensus that The Press don't do investigative. Not since the Newsquest takeover at least.

You give your game away too easily Mr Love.

Be interesting to see if the jokers decide to pro actively give the fines back to try and save some face or keep to the "you've got to claim it back" policy.

Couldn't agree more. This is the worst the Press has ever been. Barely a newspaper at all now, which is a great shame and an insult to the excellent paper it used to be.
