++ WAG makes urgent statement on Anglesey Council ++ (updated)

110217angleseyen

UPDATE: David Bowles' press release concerning Carl Sargeant's statement is below:

MINISTER CONSIDERS MORE STRINGENT INTERVENTION

The Minister for Social Justice and Local Government, Carl Sargeant, in
a written statement issued today, whilst praising staff, says that
Anglesey County Council’s political problems have not gone away.

He has now instructed the Auditor General to conduct an urgent
re-inspection of the Authority to help him consider ‘a new and more
stringent form of intervention’.

Anglesey’s Interim Managing Director, David Bowles, said “I agree
entirely with the Minister’s assessment of the County Council’s
current political predicament.  This is fundamentally an issue about the
personal values, conduct and behaviours of individual members entrusted
with £150m of public money.  Unfortunately in spite of very extensive
development, support and very blunt advice the majority continue to let
the people of Anglesey down.”

“The Minister has himself pointed to hollow assurances given by some
members to the Recovery Board. Unfortunately, this has been my
experience of how some councillors operate in Anglesey with no less than
five reneging on their own signatures on written undertakings and
agreement. I was appalled at the latest so called new alliances in order
to allegedly take this Authority ‘forward’. This formation has
completely ignored advice that I have given and goes against the
principles of good governance, as demanded by the Minister. It is no
more than a desperate attempt to try to prevent something more dramatic
happening rather than face up to and solve the Council’s long standing
political problems. Shifting the deck chairs on the Titanic is no
solution.”

Mr Bowles continued, “How can inward investors, other Councils or
partners have any confidence in dealing with a Council dominated by a
number of unprincipled politicians who have a reputation for hollow
promises. There are some members here who have had the moral courage to
make a difference.  One hopes that there is a silent majority who at
some time will stand up to be counted and join them but I fear time has
run out.

“The population of Anglesey and its 3,000 strong workforce are
entitled to expect better of their elected representatives, who cost the
taxpayer in excess of £800,000 a year. Staff here genuinely feel that
they are the ones who will pay the price for political turmoil and
political failure by loss of jobs as a result of a possible merger with
Gwynedd and that clearly is not acceptable. It is the councillors who
should seriously consider their positions.”

“I’m very mindful, however, that in spite of everything they
endure Anglesey’s staff continue to provide good services. This was
recognised in a recent Wales Audit Office report, which praised the
commitment and dedication of a workforce which has been let down by its
elected representatives.  I hope the public recognise and praise our
staff who deliver good services day in and day out.”

David Bowles concluded, “Members have lost the trust of our staff;
they clearly have a long way to go to regain the confidence of the
Minister.”

Yet another last chance for Anglesey County Council ..... as WAG continues to fail the people of Anglesey.

Ratepayers unite, we need to demand immediate compensation from the Welsh Assembly Government for its dismal failure to control an errant council.

Brawd o Amlwch said...

Hardly a surprise......failure was waiting to happen ?
The Council has failed, the Recovery Board has failed, Bowles and McG have failed, Sargent has failed.......
What can the Auditor/Accountant find and say that makes any difference ?
A forced merger with Gwynedd will happen before XMas !

Anonymous said...

Let's get the facts straight, the Council is not fit for perpose and hase let us all down, and no matter how many chances it gets, it always fails to deliver that what is expected. The staff work hard and are in a difficult position, the cove rups are continuing, the echoes of dissent are now on the streets. What is the solution?

Well, Carl Sargeant has passed the ball back to the auditor general to have a look, sorry, looking and doing nothing are leaving us all in a perilious state, we need doing. We need action.

Remedy from my simple mind.

Dissolve the Council and call it a day. The Councillors we have will NO longer be able to stand as Councillors. Carl Sargeant to bring in a team from Cardiff to run the Council, simple.
Issues and complaints to be investigated, thoroughly and honestly. Council to run without Councillors for 12 months, total clean out. The services will continue as normal, the Anglesey cake will be binned, and then a new system of Councillors can be installed, preferrably a lot less, it's the only way forward.

We need a system here where we can complain and we know that someone will investigate, who in the Welsh Assembly do we turn to for help??, seeing as the Welsh Assembly have created this mess, who do we turn to down there???????????

Is Carl the man to talk to?

Any new political candidate needs a platform, a CAUSE to fight for.

Paul, over to you.
You can win on this cause, get the People of Anglesey behind you ?
Get a Petition going.

Anonymous said...

the only way forward for Anglesey now is to rid itself once and for always of those who currently occupy Council seats - I readily accept that not all are bad, some are actually quite good but, if they're not being part of the solution, then they remain part of the problem.

Every Councillor should fall on his sword and resign immediately AND rule themself out of standing for re-election. New blood is needed and it is needed now, not at the next scheduled election.

If they quit or were all sacked en masse then there would be no option but to hold an early election.

If Sargent wants a method to show progress then it is staring him in the face - dump this dysfunctional Council on Penhesgyn tip and facilitate getting a new one in that wants to work for the people of Anglesey and not for their own personal or Party gain.

Written Statement by the Welsh Assembly Government

"What is profoundly disappointing for me is that now many of those apparently
involved in recent developments gave personal assurances to my Recovery
Board that they would not destabilise the current administration in the
interests of securing recovery. Those assurances have proved to be hollow."
Carl Sergeant 2011

The Hollow Men

We are the hollow men
We are the stuffed men
Leaning together
Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!
Our dried voices, when
We whisper together
Are quiet and meaningless
As wind in dry grass
Or rats' feet over broken glass
In our dry cellar

A shape without form, shade without colour
Paralysed force, gesture without motion;

T.S. Elliot 1925

I've been waiting for this for a few weeks now. Shifty Carl Sergeant gets the Senedd in a tissy to rush through legislation giving him powers to amalgamate councils with their neighbours - especially failing councils as IoAC obviously is. This latest announcemnt to bring in the (no doubt suitably briefed) auditors in once more is merely a precursor to our local authority being swallowed by Gwynedd Council. Remember you read it her first folks!!

Anonymous said...

The statement by Bowles must rank as one of the most extraordinary ever made in local government in the UK. His comments show what can only be described as his complete contempt for the individuals who he seems to forget have been democratically elected by the people. They could have been said by a political agent in the days of the Raj who was telling an independent Indian Ruler that unless he did as he was told then his territory would be annexed by the British. His position looks frankly untenable. He has become part of the problem and not part of the solution and however,much it might embarrass WAG he should obviously go.

Photon said...

So, we've gone from a minority of troublemakers to a majority. I hate to say it, but we told you so, Carl!

kp said...

And whilst it is fair to say that 'Anglesey staff continue to provide good services', Mr Bowles should take a good hard look at the cost of providing such 'good services'.

It is precisely these costs that need to be slashed.

We are poor and we cannot have a rates bill that reflects anything other than our general state of poorness!

KP. we have the 2nd or 3rd lowest council tax bill in wales out of 22 council. please learn your facts.

Are we not the poorest region in the UK?

And, if so, why does our council tax not reflect this. It should be the lowest of all!

Or do you have another view?

Druid,
I don't know if you know but JOHN ARTHUR JONES has been going around the Amlwch sort of area saying he is going to run against IWJ in the upcoming elections.

Not only this, but he has also been campaigning for the NO vote in the referendum. HE said with a YES vote taxes will go up.
Clearly this is a complete lie.

To 18.31 You`r stupid.

Bowles` biggest mistake was thinking he could draw a line and let his Senior Officers and Councillors alike get away with their corrupt past.
Recovery should have meant recovery, not just brush the crap under the carpet.
Therefore, half the shite that`s gone on since is down to Bowles.
What did he expect ? And, it does`nt look like he has got thing`s done does it. All the problems should have been sorted in 1998, lessons were not learnt.

Yes. JAJ is completely and utterly delusional.......laugh at him....or forget him.


Taking it a stage furher, a NO vote is a vote to keep the WAG the same shambolic mess it is now.

It will never be undone - it's here and that's that and only a YES vote can actually bring any changes to how it currently is.

NO means you're happy with the state of affairs as they are (whether that's what you actually mean or not) and not voting means you couldn't care less.

As for the council, I have said the same as thers above. Make them all stand down and not seek re-election. Yes some are good but sadly unless they are willing to go public about 'antics' then to get rid of the bad they've all got to go.

It's interesting to read Bowles' response that quote is a little bit of Druid posting, did anyone else find it? So we now know that they all read the Druid and accordingly they all chuckle at the responses by the likes of you and I, now before we all switch our laptops off and hide them under the stairs, do not Panic!

This letter from Carl " Beef cake" Sargeant is nothing but a bluff, he knows that people will panic and reply all sorts to it, this will give Beefcake a bit of a breathing space, by passing a letter saying the auditor is looking into it.

The auditor will then report that his report will have to be passed onto another bureacrat, and during this episode, the vote will take place to give the dogs a yes, no to get more law making power what a joke that is, more breathing space, for Beefcake.

So in maybe 6 months time, we will still be moaning, but unknown to us, a very important issue will be resolved behind our backs.

The merger bus, will be parking in Caernarfon, documents will be carried out of the boot, and overnight, we will wake up and be part of Gwynedd. The problems of the past will be erased overnight.

When we have got over that shock, we will realise that we have been conned again. It won't be the first time, it won't be the last time, but if you actually think that your voice will be heard in Caernarfon, then forget it, nothing could be further from the truth, if they can't hear us in Cardiff, how do you think they will hear us in Caernarfon?

By the time we wake up that fateful day, the merger bus will be flying down the road to Cardiff, and will be parked at the back of the Senedd, alongside IWJ's van, Beefcakes' hot dog van and Carwyn Jones' ice cream van.

They love their vans down there, handy for keeping dogs, well they have their tongues up each other's arses just like the dogs they are.

The Photon reckons that there is an avenue to complain to the Welsh Audit Office direct, will the people who want to go down that avenue, please remember the following.

Don't build your hopes up.

Every complaint received is copied and sent to the person you are complaining about, so if you think it's confidential and impartial, sorry it's not.

It's more cost effective to keep this hilly billy Council ticking over, than to try to replace it, it's money at the end of the day.

"He's an MD who takes no crap and gets things done. "

You need to be able to provide examples of things he's got done if you're going to make claims like that round here.

Otherwise, folks will say he's more like an MD who takes lots of money and doesn't get much done. And readers can already see he and the Council would have preferred it if no one knew exactly how much money was involved.

Are his/Solace's full contract Ts+Cs with IoACC now public? Was his appointment and/or his payment conditional on meeting specified targets, or is the contract on a "you turn up, you get paid" basis?

Paul Williams said...

Comment made at 18:31 deleted for naming names. I reproduce it below with those names redacted.

"Those against Bowles are clearly stupid.

He is the best thing that has happened to Ynys Mon since 1996. He's an MD who takes no crap and gets things done. I doubt even Nelson Mandela could do a better job with these councillors!

The sooner they remove the likes of [redacted] the more likely we are to continue as Ynys Mon and not Gwynedd.

Ultimately it is up to us the residents of Ynys Mon to stand up and be heard! We need your support! Stand up and put your names forward for the next elections! For too long the so called big wigs have won elections with no competition against their seats! Amlwch, you in particular need this change! Winston may make you believe that he is helping you but believe me he's only interested in himself, he's clearly affecting any chance of investment in your ward!

Stand up and be counted people!"

Anonymous said...

Actually I'm starting to think Bowles' entire intention was to stir the hornets nest.

Some of his comments are very sarcastic, and his focus seems to be solely on destroying the two councillors named in the "Terms Of Engagement"!

Very clever and devious, Mr Bowles!

the outsider said...

I am astonished to read what Mr Bowles has said, whatever is or is not the problem he should refrain from making comments that denigrate the elected Councillors, he is after all a civil servant and so his remarks are inappropriate. Carl Sargeant is a politician and THE politician with the responsibility for this situation so it is correct protocol for him to voice his concerns and take the action he has. However that action does little more than kick the problem into the long grass where it will no doubt be dealt with after the March referendum and possibly even after the May elections. That is not, in my humble opinion, good enough. There surely must be provisions for calling an early election for IoACC and that is the only democratic way forward now.

The Minister has the legal power to call an election.......see Local Government Act 2000, Part IV, Sections 85-87 incl.

I guess the merger bus is on it's way from Cardiff then, is this their idea of democracy, having our identity taken away from us? Are we to blame for this mess? Is Carl Sargeant on the side of the people or is he driving the merger bus to run over our rights as people? Bring the merger bus to Anglesey Carl, let's see what your reasons are and then we will give you our reasons why we don't want to merge!

If the merger bus is driving up hell bent on making us pay for this political fiasco, then we will not letting it through.

Hell on wheels, the merger bus.

If the minister does what is right for Anglesey and for democracy in Welsh local government, he will in parallel to his announcement today, call for fresh elections to be held this year.

It beggars belief that anything more substantive can come out of another Audit Gen visit. The Recovery Board have been the eyes and ears of WAG in Llangefni. They have enough info to pull the plug.

e.g if a football team has a player who pulls up with a hamstring, does the manager

a) leave him there, shout at him and say that he'll run it off, or

b) get him off, substitute and deal with the injury asap!

why does IOACC get the a) option ?????

It's the ineffectual Welsh Assembly we have, you see, these problems would never have happened in South Wales, but because we are up here, out of the way, Cardiff turns a deaf ear, but now Carl Sargeant has realised that the people are pissed off with this Council, the Assembly and it's idiots and the anger is now being directed at Carl Sargeant himself.

And there's nothing worse than being made a fool of, he won't like the public having a go at him, he likes to bully and barge his way around, but he's been outfoxed again, by the people of Anglesey, who are calling his bluff.

Poor Carl Sargeant, the minister for Social Justice and Local Government looks like he belongs in an episode of Yes Minister!

David Bowles's complaint to the Local Government Ombudsman, against Cllr Barrie Durkin, is on the point of collapse.

It is said that David Bowles, has breached the Data Protection Act which in this case is also a criminal offence in his attempt to prejudice the Ombudsman to find in favor of his complaint.

This turn of event will come a hammer blow to Carl Sargent who still thinks the sun shines out of Bowles's arse.

PROFILE OF A SOCIOPATH.

Manipulative and Conning.
They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victims as merely an instrument to be used, dominated and humiliated.

Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt.
A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in there way.

Callousness/Lack of Empathy
Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others' feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them.

Other Related Qualities.
Does not perceive that anything is wrong with themselves.
Authoritarian, Secretive, Paranoid. Exercises despotic control over every aspect of the victims life, Unable to feel remorse or guilt and may state readily that their goal is to rule the world.

This is only a small insight into the profile of a Sociopath but fits Mr David Bowles's character to a Tee.

Careful, good people. One other person who has very publically pointed this fact out (along with pointing out various other shortcomings) has ended up being the victim of a rather unpleasant Llangefni-led smear and hate campaign. It shouldn't happen to anybody, and those behind it should face the consequences (and should not leave with an almost half a million pound payoff like Bowles got in Lincolnshire when he found himself unable to work with councillors there in 2004).

Rather than clarify those queries, which could doubtless have been done quite quickly, the person to whom they relate appears to have had them forcibly removed, at least for now. That doesn't of course answer the queries and nor can it make them go away.

I hope the Photon is OK, and is soon able to return to much-needed investigatory work without being leaned on by anybody's dark forces.

I like the Photon but he won't phone me, if he had done I could have forewarned him about some people who are very dangerous, they are safe in their turf in Anglesey but are now considered to be a part of the problem and not of the solution.
Photon'e email is shagged, and his post this morning was removed, don't lick your wounds get some facts from another investigation up.
