Wasting Our Money - Dr Allison Fraser
Those of you who are wondering if our beloved local councils provide us with value for money, may care to consider what Dr Allison Fraser (CEO of Sandwell council) is doing with their council taxpayers' money.
Dr Fraser has decided that it is necessary to spend £5K to go on a self-awareness training course in Germany and Florida, to teach herself to 'like herself'.
The courses in the Avatar Professional Course will teach her how to become 'more likeable'.
Errmmm...here is a simple suggestion Dr Fraser, to make yourself more likeable, don't waste £5K of taxpayers' money on self indulgent crap!
As Chief Executive, Dr Fraser earns around £140K per annum; so she could afford to pay for this herself, given that "likeability" is not relevant for the role of CEO.
The course is run by the Church of Scientology, a clear sign of "quality", and aims to teach people how to become "more real, authentic", "protect themselves against the abrasions of the world" and "gain a connection with the undefined self".
Sandwell Council leader Bill Thomas is fully in favour of it:
"It is certainly very important that she has access to these training courses. This is considered to be one of the best course around.
The course was approved by the Labour group and the other main political parties."
Ah, how foolish of me, if Labour have approved it then it must be OK then!
