There it is in black and white. Would you buy a used car off this man. Would you even buy a tub of whelks off him? Mike Freers Council have spent millions of pounds on Consultants to draw up the future shape scheme, but they don't even know if emptying your bin is a core service or whether Easyjet is a good model for the service.
As ever, Mike Freer just chooses to blame everyone else. This time it's the Council CEO who he appointed - Nick Walkley. The only question is whether the Council will keep employing a man who now has no credibility following Freers "Clumsy and Cack Handed" comments, or whether he'll get a massive payoff to walk and protect Freer, like all of the other Barnet Council Scapegoats in the last few months (Thanks to DCMD and Mr Constable for the clips).
