There is a big stink going on in Carmarthenshire at the moment where the Welsh Audit Office has issued a damning report of how its council works and says some acts have been unlawful.  For more information see the posting “Unlawful, arrogant beyond belief and out of control” on this blog

It contains much interesting information including this paragraph:

No other Welsh council chief executive maintains such a high public profile. No other Welsh chief executive has built for himself a media platform which includes both the council’s own paper and also two leading local weeklies. No other Welsh chief executive has so frequently crossed the line which separates neutral public servants from the politicians.

A lesson for all Chief Executives: neutrality not politics is what they are paid for.  They do the neutrality, the councillors do the politics.
