Ridiculous council bosses, marking their own homework again, recently awarded themselves a green ‘RAG’ rating in a report presented to councillors. The report claimed, with a straight face, that they were ‘on track’ for delivering improvements for children with SEND!
Not a view necessarily shared by service users. One, @chopsy, even popped down to a scrutiny committee to tell councillors exactly what she thought about the drivel they were cheerily signing off. Here’s how she concluded:
“Colour your little box in Green and feel all pleased with yourself. But your Send system in Bristol is shambolic. It’s practically a hate crime against the city’s young disabled population. It’s vindictive, unlawful and reacts with spite, actively aiming to harm children and families.”
If that gets a green rating from bosses, what would it take to get a red rating?
