A new topic to list all the examples of gross incompetence by CCBC, the WAG, Llandudno council or the UK Government.

Ian, I think you mean the Welsh Government (WG) rather than the Welsh Assembly.

Re: Incompetence: CCBC, WAG, Government, Local council - put it in here

I've changed it now, but I did initially mean the Assembly itself. On reflection, however, it should be the WAG - you're right.  Whatever we put in here should be provable examples of incompetence, too. Not just opinion.

I am sure Ian's description wasn't  intended to exclusive.  The NAfW is as capable of incompetence as any other body - some might say more so. 

Just a thought - perhaps "Public Bodies and Statutory Undertakers" would be a more embracing title and cover NRW, railways, buses, the Planning Inspectorate, Housing Associations, Cadw and so on ?

I've changed it again (!) but there's a limit on the topic header and I wanted to make it clear that those who legislate should be uppermost. "Statutory Undertakers" could be confused for Crematoria associates  WWW

First very clear example of incompetence comes from Mid-Glamorgan:  Phil Chappell, head of Vale of Glamorgan Council’s economic development team, tweeted in response to an enquiry on the best places to eat in Llandudno : “There’s a bearable Italian above some shops somewhere.

“Pass the smack addicts turn left and follow the pictures of Keith Chegwin.”


Later claimed it was a 'joke'...

I read the article and like you found it thoughtless, but I was surprised to read the comments, the majority in support of his views.

He has since deleted the tweet, and claimed it was a joke ?

That's the incompetent bit, Steve. He's perfectly entitled to say whatever rubbish comes into his head but as the head of Vale of Glamorgan Council’s economic development team to claim it was a 'joke' is simply incompetent.

Agreed, and we will soon get the chance to vote in new, hopefully less incompetent officials.

I suspect that's the problem:  we can't vote in officials - only those who appoint them.

This does not help.......

Uncontested council election seats 'mockery of democracy'

Nearly 100 councillors in Wales will be reappointed without being challenged at the local elections.
On Thursday, 7.3% of Welsh local authority seats will be uncontested, with 92 councillors returned without any votes being cast.
One county councillor in Powys has gone unchallenged for his seat for 37 years.
Prof Roger Scully, of Cardiff University's Wales Governance Centre, said it made a "mockery of democracy".

Conwy has 6 uncontested seats.

I'm sure we can now look forward to another round of Council Cutbacks in order to fund their new HQ building.  &shake&

These councils all say they do not have money, so where does the £23 million come from?   &shake&
