Such empty threats. The Ombudsman – who pisses in the same pot – would clear the council regardless.
As a result of recent posts from me, I have been contacted on Direct Messenger by a member of Merthyr Council.
The communications were not marked as private and confidential, so I am sharing the messages together with my responses.
I would stress that I have edited the Councillor’s messages so as to protect the individual’s identity.
1 Councillor’s message to me.
I have taken your posts down from our pages.
The simple reason is we can not be seen to supporting open criticism of Council Officers. You leave us wide open to ombudsman referrals and a threat of suspension.
That serves no purpose for you or the many other residents and businesses of Merthyr that rely on us Councillors to support them.
If you have issues, by all means contact individual Councillor’s as you see fit, however I can not allow such irresponsible posts on out pages.
