No surprise about no resignation; time he was dumped. However with so many councilors involved themselves as directors I simply don't see that happening either. Just how many other fiasco's can this bunch of chumps manufacture?

Well at least the hole has been plugged back in june
3 million loan from "bank of SMBC" to be paid back over 10 years (? council has spare 3 million)
plus 3 million overdraft arranged just in case.

It looks like this lady has already done her groundwork, I guess all the answers are here.

I wouldn't pay too much attention to Ms Oliver! She came on here not so long ago and showed herself to be a bit of a 'nut' and at times bordering on hysterical!

One subject she brought up, i know a reasonable amount about (as i was involved in some of the work there) and i can say that, certainly on that subject, she was making a big deal about things that weren't and that she didn't understand!

Oh Coleman. Sheila Oliver may or may not be a nut, but everyone should be given the opportunity of free speech without fear of someone who does not necessarily agree with them, calling them a nutter to someone else, and thus encouraging others to completely disreguard them. It might be that much of what she says is misguided, but on another hand keeping those in authority in the spotlight and on those toes is no bad thing.

Maybe I should have stopped short of using the word 'nut' but have your read some of her 'material'?
A lot of her ramblings are strange to say the least, some are just plain propoganda. And a few I would go as far as to say are bordering on certifiable!

I agree that its good that our council are scrutinized and monitored, god knows I have some suspicions of 'undesirable' goings on where our council is involved. However I think that somebody who often doesn't understand the subject, who makes wild claims to stir up support and who is at best missguided is the last person who should be doing it!

Surcharge all 32 of them for this mess, particularly the spineless independents. What a shame they didn't lose the vote and then all resigned ... That would probably have killed this SEMMS nonsense as well.
