Have had an offer to stay in Ibiza for a couple of weeks to look after a villa, so Bertie is legging it.
My apologies to readers, but I am not good at long distance blogging so all will be quiet on Strife for the next two weeks.
I will be leaving a team behind to look at and analyse, TDC's wasteful maladministration of Maritime Services; the costs of Housing Repairs & Maintenance and the utter contempt for TDC Contract Procedure Rules; all exposed by EKAP but not even mentioned by The Audit Commission in its report of 2008/9.
The cost of electricity to the tax-payer , at Margate Harbour is being looked at as well as an enormous grant paid to refurbish Royal York Mansions that is connected to a TDC Councillor who declared an 'interest'.
All interesting stuff, but late summer sunshine is now the priority. Hopefully, the latest Blog War will be over by the time I return.
