Plaid Cymru reject Tory coalition proposal at Conwy council
The local authority has been thrown into turmoil as Plaid says members will not form cabinet with Conservatives.
"Cllr Jones has told the BBC he was disappointed by the decision and wants a detailed and thorough explanation of why exactly this decision was taken.
Plaid cabinet member Trystan Lewis, who was cabinet member of primary education and the council’s Welsh language champion, has said on Facebook that he has resigned from the executive.
He said he was sad to lose this opportunity to make a difference locally but remained loyal to Plaid Cymru."

Not incompetence, but a bit of common sense for a change.  $good$ ......as Ian said above.... " I just think it would be a nice change if politicians of whatever persuasion could just work together for the good of the community"

Plaid Cymru Conwy leader defies party on Tory coalition.
The Plaid Cymru leader of Conwy council has presented a cabinet including Conservatives in defiance of what he called a "diktat" from his party.
Gareth Jones told a meeting of the full council on Monday that party politics "should not distract us".

"Presenting his team to the full council, Mr Jones said: "I respect the people of Conwy and how they voted. That's what's important, not a diktat that isn't democratic"

The leader of Conwy council has left the Plaid Cymru group.
Gareth Jones said he would sit as an independent following a meeting of Plaid's local branch committee, as there was "no future" for him as leader and a Plaid member.

Council bigwig given 'posh' £28,000 Audi by cash-strapped authority says it's 'cost effective'

Councillor Davies, 53, said he was unable to drive the previous chairman’s manual car - a Skoda Superb - and can only drive an automatic after suffering a serious injury to his left ankle in a work-related accident.

The controversial decision to buy him the car has sparked outrage in a county which was forced to cut its budget by £29 million between 2016-19

He might need an auto, but why such a pricey one? Lot cheaper around.

I liked these quotes.....

 "The chairman has a £12,000 fund to spend on entertaining and dinners. Also between staff costs, the area committees cost a total of £35,000 to run. It all mounts up.”

 “To review the future role of the chairman and all civic roles”.

I have a suspicion that all this goes back to how local councils regard themselves. They feel they have some sort of importance, and interpret that as meaning the chairman has to have transport 'befitting his role'.

£40,000 sickness czar appointed to bring absences down by one day per worker
Conwy council says it will save £400,000 a year, but critics say target is nowhere near ambitious enough.

"It is the latest initiative from the authority, which last year introduced free yoga classes in work time because so many staff were complaining of back pain.
The council said if the new role managed to reduce the time lost to around 10-and-a-half days, it could save the council up to £400,000 a year.

The Daily Post understands the post will be paid for out of the existing human resources budget, and will not cost the council extra."

"Daddy what do you do in work?"

"Well Son, I'm a sickness czar. Work hard and maybe you can join me in the family business someday"

Just shows how bad the top brass are ,it's not a new thing though I remember 40+ years ago one guy was off sick every other month , if some of the managers/ supervisors didn't act the bully boy the worker would be happier to go to work, could even try what hotpoint and Quints did years ago .no need to pay £40.000 to anyone ,the personnel dept are not doing their job properly by the looks of it .

On a lovely sunny afternoon, there were no deck chairs on the beach or promenade when we passed this afternoon.

Not surprising when the deck chairs are under the tarpaulin and the usual sign is not on display.

What's interesting is what the report doesn't say. In what departments are the sickness rates high?
