I saw this in the Daily Telegraph today, well worth reading.
"A council leader who compared a rival to notorious Nazi Joseph Goebbels will not be investigated by a local authority watchdog."
Interesting judgment by the Standards Board for Councillors in England.
The trouble is, if councillors complain vexatiously it can damage the local authority's reputation and cost it hundreds of thousands of pounds, like here in Somerset.
"A parish councillor who filed nearly 100 complaints against four councils in the space of only 18 months has made a further 30 in just one day, provoking fresh criticism that he is "abusing the system."
Of course the craziest councillors are cyclists like pictured Colin Rosenstiel....click here.
"A councillor was facing suspension after he allegedly blocked the path of an ambulance responding to a 999 call - because it broke local by-laws."
