Has He gone already?

I learned late on Friday night that the council has an acting Chief Executive now, none other than the finance officer, Ray Richardson. Could it be that Mr Moore has been permitted to try and plug the £12,000,000 hole in our councils budget (the job he was given by George Dunning as a reward for getting us into that position) from the comfort of his own front room? Perhaps a sun drenched beach in the Bahamas even?

Its impossible to comprehend, when you look at the tribunal reports at the very start of this blog last June, that the council suspended and dismissed normal council employees for far less than BEING IN CHARGE of a council that has, somehow, managed to end up with a £12,000,000 black hole in its budget. Yet the chief executive who is directly responsible for our council being in such a mess financially, is just allowed to slip away through the back door, with glowing public appraisals from the leader of the council who just a few months before he was made leader called for the chief executives investigation twice, without so much as a sniff of an investigation or any serious questions asked?

It would appear that not only were that last Libdem/Tory/East Cleveland independent coalition in the Chief executives pocket, the new Labour leader is too! Once again, the question we all have to ask is why?
