Case Work

With allowances and expenses under the spotlight, it's every resident's right to demand that they get their money's worth from their politicians. The casework stats have now been published by the council for the last full council year and yet again the Lib Dems come out top. No surprise there.

In Reading, your Tory councillor only does a mean average of 36 items of casework per year, a Labour councillor does 44, whilst a Lib Dem on average does 94. See, it's not just an election time slogan, we actually deliver what we promise!

Quantity: good. How about the quality??...Sounds like you are overworked! NO wonder you are blasting off at every opportunity!

It's a shame that the majority of 'work' you put through the Council is punitive. Empty crisp packet see rolling down Katesgrove Lane, dead beetle on footpath in Pell Street, postmans rubber band on the sidewalk BLAH BLAH BLAH. it's a shame you don't have any real work to put through the system. Maybe one day you'll progress to some real case work and shock someone at RBC!!

Tories getting rattled for being exposed as the lazy beggers they are? No surprise there.

As my Mum says: Empty vessels make the most sound.

Now get back in your box!

Poor little Lib Dum thinks that 'work' means reporting mischief on a blog and doing bugger all else. Did you hear the one about the Lib Councillor who reported missing ducks at the Caversham Prom? He complained that ducks were definately missing as he saw them fly off when he tried to count them!

Oh dear, oh dear. Very poor. Don't give up the day job.

However, you are most welcome to continue to post here. I don't shirk at the thought of having a battle of wits with an unarmed man and it is useful ammunition.

It would be more meaningful if you actually gave a breakdown of every issue you raised (without personal details).
