nothing to do with your post, but how can tdc decide to offer an existing officer the post of chief exec without advertising it?
Thanks, I look forward to his posts. Michael, any chance of updating the links on your 'Thanet Blogs' site sometime? I must confess that I generally only read the blogs that are on there.
Peter tell me what you think I should add and remove and I will sort it out.23.56 word is that she is pretty good at what she does and that we could easily do a lot worse, but I will endeavour to find out more, and no I don’t really know what the rules over this one are.I certainly found Richard Samuel to be courteous and usually responsive to questions and I do give these people a fairly hard time, so I think in many ways it is a case of wait and see.
I'll leave that entirely up to you Michael, as lately I haven't really kept up with what local blogs are & aren't regularly updated. Feel free to remove my Naked in Thanet blog though (it's not dead, it's just in hibernation!).
because someone appears to be good at what they do and they have the support of the ruling council does not really seem to be an accountable way of appointing some one to a post paying £120K plus of public money
Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
