"Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today for an exciting new meeting format packed with meaty matter, and to give thanks to our Chief Executive for his infallible and sure leadership which has raised this iconic Authority up to be a beacon for less fortunate parts of Wales, and indeed the rest of the world. We would like to take this opportunity to thank His Excellency for allowing us to meet here today, and all the officers for their hard work in putting together this agenda and its attendant Powerpoint reports. Deliver us from the
Wales Audit Office forces of evil, and for what we are about to receive, may God help us."

Members should note that this very full agenda means that there will be no time for questions.
Members are cordially invited for
It's so funny - but so frighteningly true. When is somebody from the Assembly - cannot bring myself to call it Government - going to take notice of the bullying antics meted out here in this council of horrors, for which we are paying.
Councillors are selling their souls and democracy for a few hundred pounds as chair of committees.I keep repeating this time and time again
"Come on councillors in opposition I don't believe you can do nothing to halt this terrible decline into chaos.What would happen if you all stood together and took it to the welsh assembly?Chief executive and his cronies are getting away with it due to your lack of will.I know that some of you have tried to bring some semblance of transparency to proceedings and have exposed much but it is not enough and someone must take control to push it forward."
In response to the de facto gagging orders imposed by the CEx and upheld by his puppetocracy, perhaps opposition Members may wish to seek advice on invoking powers under Section 3(2) of Part 1 of Schedule 12 of the Local Government Act 1972. My understanding is that on the application of 5 Members, an Extraordinary General Meeting can be called by the Chairman, or if he refuses so to do, by the 5 Members. The agenda could then include all these awkward questions that the Executive don’t want asked. No doubt Mrs Mugabe will obtain the finest legal advice known to man to tell me that such powers don’t exist in this case.
Absolutely Anonymous 15.10 Surely it is worth trying if only to expose excuses made by Chief executive and senior officers when they refuse.I feel things are gathering pace now and the time is right to stand up for democracy in this rotten council.
