The Reverend Rees’s response to the Bundred Report into the council’s MULTIPLE FINANCIAL FAILINGS, being personally overseen by his chronically underperforming donkey of a new Chief Exec, Anna “Big Wedge” Klonowski, is FALLING APART before it’s even started.

On Tuesday – in the middle of a General Election when politicians are looking the other way – Ms Big Wedge published her SEMI-LITERATE, ‘Response to the Bundred Review’ for the Cabinet to sign-off next week. Page 4 of Big Wedge’s rambling error-strewn drivel tells us:

“S[enior]L[eadership]T[eam] have agreed and the Chief Executive has recently reinforced the need for reports rather than presentations to be used as the basis of discussions and decisions.”

So come Thursday and Ms Klonwoski’s incompetent legal boss and Monitoring Officer, Shahzia “Dim” Daya – who personally oversaw and signed off the UNLAWFUL BUDGET of 2016 at the heart of the controversy – published her own report to councillors, ‘Scrutiny Structures and New Ways of Working – Hothouse Outcomes’.

This report is just one page long and tells councillors, “Full details of the outcomes of the Scrutiny review will be provided by Members VERBALLY at the meeting.”

So much for “the need for REPORTS rather than PRESENTATIONS to be used as the basis of discussions and decisions” then. Do the new rules not apply to lazy and bent Monitoring Officers?

The significance of all this is that councillors simply did not have the necessary ACCESS and INFORMATION they required to scrutinise what their bent managers were up to in 2015 – 17. This new scrutiny review is supposed to correct that.

Although it looks to us like councillors are being blatantly set up to fail all over again by exactly the same council bosses who conned them last time.

    So is Shahzia Daya part of the SLT (which agreed to written reports) or is she incapable of following SLT policy (in which case she should be looking for a new job). Where did she get transferred from and what extortionate salary does she rip us off for? Was there a big fat agency fee for bringing in this rubbish? Why does Bristol always get the dregs for top brass? Never learn from past mistakes? Over and over again.

      Where did she get transferred from…?

      Those with long memories might recall Ms Daya’s role in 2010 with the infamous “coconutgate affair” in which then LD councillor Shirley Brown called a Conservative colleague a “coconut”.

      Ms Daya was the council officer who investigated the subsequent complaint, stating in the whitewash report into the matter: “although the term ‘coconut’ undeniably has a racist element to it, its use in this particular context does not constitute racial abuse“, for which alone she should have been sacked all those years ago and saved Bristolians wasting council tax on her salary.
