THE MYSTERY OF THE MISSING HALF CABINET: A REVEREND REES ADVENTURE

Famous Five (2)

Eighteen days after his election and the Reverend Rees still hasn’t managed to find a full cabinet for his second term.

Despite reappointing his ‘Infamous Five’, the two deputy mayors – Craig “Dick” Cheney and Asher “The Slasher” Craig – his anointed successor – Helen “Oh My” Godwin – court favourite – Nicola “La La” Beech – and aging makeweight – HRH Helen of Holland – Rees still has no cabinet members to run Transport, Housing or Education.

Neither is the Reverend intending, it seems, to reach out to the Greens by giving them some cabinet seats after they decimated his councillors and destroyed his majority at the election.

What is his plan then? Is the Reverend going to end all pretence of democracy in Bristol and simply let council managers and appointed One City business wankers run these departments any way they see fit? 

Questions are also being asked about the appointment of La La Beech to the Climate, Ecology, Waste and Energy brief. Here, among other things, she’ll nursemaid through Rees’s deranged City Leap public asset sell-off to a multinational company. This may result in the burning of as much shit as possible in Avonmouth to generate loads of lucrative dirty (surely clean? Ed.) energy.

Alas, it turns out that La La Beech, in her day job as a corporate PR consultant, lists one of her clients as the National Grid. is there a conflict of interest here at all?

We think we should be told.

    Maybe check the job centre ?
    Marvin could be advertising for these vacant positions ?
    Or else auctioning them off perhaps ?

    It’d be good to hear what the other parties are doing.

    Are the councillors clueless ?

    Or do they think their work is done and sitting on their backsides with their feet up now ?

    Maybe they only stood for a bet and didn’t mean it ?

    Various news reports are claiming the mayor’s office have created 66 S.E.N.D. school places. If this is true then Marvin needs to get his fucking finger out. Recruit someone to sort out this neglect of chilren. Now. It’s not enough – Bristol needs in excess of 300 places. Just what the fuck is this ego maniac playing at ?

    That’s not a group that’s going to take care of people.
    That’s a group of very shadey property developers.

    Having been said before it is never-the-less worth calling out persistently.
    Two overpaid yet tediously unremarkable office dossers who blatantly insult and ignore the very people they’re employed to serve.

    Self serving, unempathic Mike Crackman Jackson and his poor decision making ego manic boss hog – most certainly unremarkable Marvin ‘must cease’ Rees.

    This unnecessary duo continue on regardless with their delusions of grandure.

    Why these out pourings dismissing their feeble grasp of reality and vision ?

    Well this time they unsurprisingly been found wanting by an independant ‘official’ body.
    They have been CAUGHT RED HANDED ignoring the genuine concerns and complaints made by members of the public. The very people they are paid and given responsibilty to serve.

    Some of who are vunerable, all of whom should be listen to.

    Is this the first time ? No
    Will it be the last time ? Almost certainly not.

    This secretive, selfish and parinoid administration is no way to cherish our funtastic creative city
