Marco gets watered down 'Love Award' at posh Peterborough hotel...

ROTTING BUCKETS AWARD
PBROTRIB SKETCH




With so much important news around, we had a slight chuckle that as the Dear Leader is not feeling the love on a number of pressing fronts, found time to turn up at the 'We Love What You Do'  Business Awards 2014. 

Still ever appreciative of a free dinner or a slap up fork buffet (must check the extras on the water bill) held at The Peterborough Marriott hotel last night. Cllr Marco Cereste had a wash and brushup, donned his wet suit (ED: Check your sources...) and made a splash...  then having read the brochure we considered that the Dear Leader must have waded in with the Cereste Memorial Dancing Fountains in Cathedral Square   ".....to recognise people, businesses and initiatives that have made a difference in the field of water and environmental management..."  ( ..for 'field' read 'square')

Admittedly if you scan the twitter feed it reads slightly differently :

at the Anglian business awards PCC got highly commended in the leadership category.

Curious as to why the PCC would in these cash-strapped times spend borrowed public money and public resources, wasting staff time chasing a gong from Anglian Water which is little more than a marketing exercise we quote "Sound and video recording and photography will be conducted during the awards to be used for marketing purposes" we had a look at the Entry Form and its suitably gushing prose:

Businesses are in a unique position to protect the environment for future generations – not only do they have control over their own operations but they can also influence the behaviour of their employees, customers and even suppliers.

EAST COAST MAIN LINE CONTRACT AWARDED - A WIN FOR VIRGIN AND STAGECOACH




SHOW US THE MONEY!   GNER  bid £1.3bn for franchise, National Express £1.4bn but pulled out.  Stagecoach/Virgin are now promising £3.3bn.......



Despite being cast as the underdog, Government has announced that it is to award an 8 year contract to run the EAST COAST MAIN LINE to Virgin and Stagecoach. This appears to be a political about turn, as it was widely leaked, briefed out to a variety of industry sources that a very strong bid from a consortium including SNCF French Railways would be favoured.

The UK Department for Transport said the new eight-year contract, from next March, would be serviced by a brand new fleet of 65 train units to be introduced from 2018, the final assembly by Japanese firm Hitachi in a Durham based plant in the UK. 

The franchise has been [ profitably] in state hands since 2009 after the previous operator National Express abandoned it, before the strangely set up deal would require the franchisee to make increasingly loaded end balloon payments towards the latter part of the contract.  It was then a simple choice to walk away from the contract, without the increase payments being incurred.

The new trains they say will increase capacity by 50 per cent with an extra 12,200 seats, with journey times between Edinburgh and London reduced by 13 minutes to around four hours from 2020 when the full Hitachi fleet is in service.

Martin Griffiths, chief executive of Stagecoach Group, said: “A passion for customers, employees and the community is at the heart of our plans for the franchise.

“We want to build on the quality and pride of the people who will be joining our team.

“We have some fantastic ideas to deliver a more personal travel experience for customers.

“Investing in the committed people who will make that happen is a big part of our plans, giving opportunities for them to develop and grow into more senior roles.

“At the same time, we have developed major programmes to help young people, communities and small businesses along what is one of Britain’s major rail routes.”

Other improvements include better wi-fi on trains, which has been criticised by passengers, and upgraded onboard catering - on the new Intercity Express fleet.

Yesterday, Scottish Labour leadership candidate Neil Findlay joined those condemning the UK Government for re-privatising the service.

The trains will have faster acceleration and braking but top speed is restricted to the current 125mph speed limit..

Meanwhile the RMT Union has sent out a blistering, all guns blazing, Press Notice, It is published below in full:

FROM RMT PRESS OFFICE
 
 
Mick Cash, RMT General Secretary, said:
 
"It is a national disgrace and an act of utter betrayal that the government has confirmed that it is bulldozing ahead with the re-privatisation of the East Coast Main Line despite all the figures showing that the current public sector operator is handing over a billion pounds back to the British people while delivering huge improvements in service and customer satisfaction.
 
"It is simply ludicrous to even contemplate re-privatisation when not only have there been two previous private sector failures on the East Coast route but when the public-sector rescue operation has been such a stunning success. This is pure industrial vandalism by a rotten government hell bent on wrecking successful public services in the name of private greed. 
 
"While domestic public ownership puts money back into the coffers that can be reinvested in our railways the private operators suck out colossal sums in subsidies and profits - that's what privatisation means.
 
"The decision to hand this profitable and successful public rail operation back to the vultures from Virgin/Stagecoach is based purely on hard-right political ideology and RMT is committed to continuing the fight to block this betrayal right up to polling day and beyond."‎

ARE SEVERAL PETERBOROUGH CITY COUNCIL VOTES KNOWINGLY INVALID?


Here at Trib Towers, we get all sorts of information and leaks, some of it finds its way into this blog, other items are so serious that we try and channel it directly to where it can be properly evaluated. But the latest piece of information, which has arrived in four different forms, and through 6 very different sources, is something that we are simply unable to process and handle discreetly. 

It does however need to be properly in the public domain, and someone in officialdom, needs to act on it without delay and ensure the results are made very public.

This is the basis of our knowledge so far.  It is being seriously suggested that several members ie councillors are KNOWN by council officers to be seriously in arrears, over council tax payments on their properties. Several names have been quoted, and the same names are repeated by 3 different sources.  So why does this matter?

Simply if an elected member is in default over council tax, we are led to believe that he/she cannot lawfully vote in council or within Cabinet or as a member of a committee. Clearly officers should have picked up on this and advised the member (s) in default accordingly. They have to withdraw from all votes, there is no room for manoeuvre.  

So it stands to reason if this information is correct, then some votes recently passed by council are in fact null and void. The results of those votes should not be acted upon.

We'd ask some of our legal friends out there, to dig up the exact wording of the legal authority relating to this situation.

As soon as we have assembled a dossier, it will be on its way to London in addition to being the basis of a formal complaint directly to Council. In the interim period, if any Council Officers are sitting on this information and knowingly allowing the votes to stand, they may wish to urgently consider their own position.

We are raising this now as soon a vote will need to be taken on the current budget proposal, which will see disabled people saddled with an extra £12 a month payment of council tax, and many other issues.

THOMAS COOK CHIEF 'OUSTED'... STEPPING DOWN IMMEDIATELY...

IN: Peter Frankhauser

In a shock announcement the Peterborough based Thomas Cook Group Plc Chairman Frank Meysman said Chief Executive Officer Harriet Green, the woman credited with restructuring the 173-year-old travel company, which involved wholesale disposals and a dramatic reduction in the headcount, is stepping down immediately.  The shares plunged 24 per cent in early trading following the news. Her departure was announced as the firm posted an annual pretax loss of £114m, down from £163m a year earlier. Earnings before interest and tax rose 44% to £323m.

OUT: Harriet Green
Ms Green is to be replaced by Chief Operating Officer Peter Frankhauser, a year after he was promoted to that position.

Sources suggest that Green was aware that she heading for an exit and would depart within six months as part of a gradual handover. She wasn't aware say industry sources that Meysman would remove her almost immediately. According to Twitter Harriet Green will get six months pay, and depending on future performance of the business, around £7m worth of shares as part of her exit package.  Commentators point out that the usual vote of thanks to the outgoing CEO was missing from the somewhat initial starchy press notice which concentrated on the incoming Frankhausers more traditional travel industry experience.


Before becoming COO, Frankhauser was in charge of Thomas Cook’s U.K. and continental European operations. Green had held the CEO role for two years,

The company’s loss after tax was  £115 million ($180.7 million) for the year ended Sept. 30, compared with a loss of £213 million a year earlier, Thomas Cook reported in a separate statement.

Sales fell almost 8 percent to £ 8.5 billion
.
The shares were down 23 percent at 106 pence as of 8:34 a.m. in London

WICKED SCAMMERS TARGETING ELDERLY HOUSEHOLDERS - A MERRY CHRISTMAS FOR SCAMMERS ???

Bogus company targeting elderly

This information has been sent on behalf of Cambridgeshire Constabulary
Message sent from
Helen O'Driscoll C R O, Peterborough POLICE - Southern)



Scam ALERT :  A [scam] company contacts (usually elderly) householders by telephone and say  they have a cheque from the householders bank owing the householder over £3000, but they first need to pay a fee before the cheque can be hand delivered to them.  >>>CONTINUED:

SILENCE AT LAST! Cllr Marco Cereste : "I am not prepared to talk to anyone who is being rude, vulgar or libellous"

http://parkfarmneighbourhoodwatch.blogspot.co.uk/2014/11/loadsamoney-pay-hikes-rubber-stamped.html  WHO GETS WHAT UPDATE



Tweets get discarded very quickly so we thought these few from 24th November 2014 should be preserved, in the cloud - for posterity - they chronicle the Dear Leaders renewed attempt to re-write recent history via social media but has clearly backfired. Have a look through and see what you think.

It is no secret that since coming to power in 2003, the power struggle in the Peterborough City Council has been like a replay of The Sopranos mixed with elements of North Korean style of democracy. Just put the word Cereste in the search box (top Left) on the Peterborough Tribune website and you'll see what we mean.

Clearly the Conservatives are up for a spanking next May by which time Cllr Seatons WACCO austerity programme will have kicked in, but senior council officers will continue living the champagne lifestyle, enjoying the massive pay hikes voted through by the Tory dominated employment committee.

How is it that Midwives are striking over as derisory ONE PERCENT pay rise but senior council officers in near bankrupt Peterborough can be awarded 30%,40% pay hikes? Even better how have they managed to keep it out of the red tops? And why is Gillian Beasley, the Chief Executive still in post? Her financial management over the last few years has been a recurring disaster, and at the end of the day she should carry the can, if she cannot steer the council along a more stable path.

Council meetings. The Dear Leader rightly says council meetings are recorded, the trouble is as we have found the contemporaneous audio recording differs from the later published print version. It is in effect tidied up and sections sometimes missed out.

THE DEAR LEADERS CABINET MAKES SHOCK NEW DECISION - MOBILE LIBRARY WILL STAY....





PETERBOROUGH TRIBNOTE







No one knows when any of our Cabinet members last picked up a hardcover book and read it all the way through, but anything to do with balancing books seems to be a problem for this council! [ED: Bad Budget, bad joke!].

Having already 'ripped the arse' out of Peterboroughs Library services by sacking experienced librarians, replaced by mega expensive neon lit self service check out terminals, reducing the budget for new books and ramping up interlibrary fees  (but keeping the central heating on 24/7 at Stanground), turning a totally blind eye to jihadist-style website viewing on computer banks at the Central Library.

 And placing the lot in the hands of another money pit Vivacity comes the news from the Cabinet meeting earlier today that no further cuts are to be made to the mobile library service, although Cllr Seaton might well set up some honesty boxes at the back soliciting donations from trusting senior citizens to plug financial black holes, in an attempt to  balance up his soon to fail budget!  That is all....

MARTIN: CYBER GEEK FACING JAIL FOR PLOT TO BLACKMAIL HALIFAX




A cyber geek is facing jail for attempting to blackmail Halifax Bank by releasing the details of 28,000 account holders to a tabloid newspaper.

 Lewys Martin, 22, demanded one Bitcoin - an untraceable virtual currency - for every 10 sets of details he was holding on a memory card.

 Martin was also caught with three malware phishing programmes which are designed to steal personal information and data.

 He issued his demands just days before he was jailed for launching cyber attacks on the websites of Oxford and Cambridge universities. - See more at: http://courtnewsuk.co.uk/

KIDNEY DIALYSIS TO BE AXED AS A 'PRESCRIBED' SERVICE ON THE NHS FROM NEXT YEAR


Press Association are reporting that Kidney disease charities were "stunned" to have been told this week dialysis will no longer be a prescribed service on the English NHS from next year, MPs have heard.
 
Labour's Madeleine Moon (Bridgend) said officials at the Department of Health revealed the "dangerous" decision in a meeting, and told the groups legislation would be put to MPs in February.
Mrs Moon urged Commons Leader William Hague organise a ministerial statement by Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt to allow MPs to protest at the plans.

Speaking during the weekly business statement, she said: "At a meeting in the Department of Health this week, kidney charities were stunned to be told that kidney dialysis was no longer to be a prescribed service and a period of consultation of six weeks would be held by the Department of Health.

"And then a Bill would be introduced to Parliament during February and changes to CCG (clinical commission groups) commissioning will commence on April 1.

"Can we have an oral statement from a minister for the Department of Health so they can hear from MPs across the floor in this House what a dangerous decision that would be and how kidney patients will be placed at risk by that decision?"

Mr Hague replied: "I don't think there is any need for a statement because it is health questions within a few days. Next Tuesday (Mr Hunt) and the ministerial team will be here on Tuesday to answer questions so I think there is an early opportunity for you to pursue this issue."

The PUBCO grinch...... and Stewart Jackson MP gets a Beer Tie for Christmas




Pubs, bars and clubs in Peterborough are being reminded to  make certain they are correctly licensed for both Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve. As they may not be licensed under their current arrangement, simply as both dates fall on Wednesdays this year, businesses must apply for an extension of their license if it does not currently permit them to serve customers beyond their normal weekday opening times on the two days.
 
Peterborough City Council says its aware there are a number of premises in the city that do not currently have permission to open later on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve, which are traditionally busy occasions for night spots.   The Council isn't automatically granting these extensions - they must be applied for.... Businesses can apply for an extension of their licenses through a temporary event notice (TEN), which costs £21.



Now what's all this about a Beer Tie? And why is Stewart Jackson MP so excited?


Julian Bray writes: I see that Stewart Jackson MP is all over the media claiming victory for voting in Parliament [ED: Voting? Isn't that what he's paid to do?] against the Beer Tie where pubs are tied and have to order beer from a restricted choice and that includes spirits, all at premium rates, through the owners (or agents of the freeholder), the PUBCO. 

I do wish he would first read some of the publications CAMRA puts out before rushing into the TV studio. Mr Jackson, known for climbing on the latest bandwagon,  claims that it will help save small community 'wet led' ie back street pubs. Sadly it won't save the majority of them  This is why.,,,,,

Peterborough Police Crackdown on Aggressive Pavement Cyclists...

 

 
On behalf of Cambridgeshire Constabulary
https://www.ecops.org.uk/


Next week your local police, together with our colleagues from the Road Safety Partnership are spending a few extra hours trying to tackle cyclists on Park Road, Broadway and Garton End Road and parts of Millfield, including Lincoln Road.

For a while now, the Police have been told by the Public that cycling on the pavement needs to be tackled in some way or another. We are told of incidents where pedestrians have been run into or have been frightened by inconsiderate cyclists riding along the footpath in our city streets.

We are helping to give talks and safety advice in some of the local schools,colleges and businesses. We are also exploring new pavement signage to serve as a reminder for cyclists that the pavement is for pedestrians

LOADSAMONEY 30% PAY HIKES RUBBER STAMPED FOR 'BROKE' PETERBOROUGH COUNCIL TOP OFFICERS

ITS A MARCO MEGA CASH ROLLOVER FOR A FEW CANNY COUNCIL OFFICERS  (the councillors led by the Dear Leader on the employment committee rolled over..)


Some senior officer pay rises 'loadsamoney' at cash strapped Peterborough City Council are now getting more than a front line social workers entire annual salary including overtime...


As the dust settles it has emerged that five senior officers have hit the jackpot have had their salaries increased as part of the so-called senior management restructure (aka hike) at Peterborough City Council, only six posts have been removed.

The most shocking of all is the £20k annual payrise of the Executive director of resources,  not suggesting that he has been rewarded for failure but his job title no longer contains the work strategic John Harrison’s  salary has increased from £121,192 to an eyewatering £141,127,  Astonishingly he also trousers 'back pay'  of £31,563 - The councils employment committee accepted the story that he had taken on “additional responsibilities” dating back to April 2011.

But all we can see is that he spent loadsamoney and time on the aborted solar farm project. And really has anyone asked to see his professional qualifications for the role?  He should at least get a vellum scroll for excellence in negotiating salary increases...

Only just in the door and slippers under the desk is Executive Director of Adult Social Care and Health and Wellbeing, Jana Burton. The Lotto sized hike has seen her salary increase from £110,235 to  an astonishing £135,345. The excuse is that her role has been expanded to include public health and the health and wellbeing portfolios ie two extra filing cabinets and a few more meetings...

Wendi Ogle-Welbourn is also smiling and for good measure, she has been named as Director of Communities, with a £10k pay hike rising to £115,345 per year, compared to £105,186 per year she received when she was Assistant Director Strategic Commissioning and Prevention for Children’s Services. Has anyone really examined her past career history at other local authorities?

Simon Machen apart from turning Peterborough into a bulding site over the last few years is the new Director of Growth and Regeneration, and will receive £115,345. He was banking £90,323 as Head of Planning, Transport and Engineering Services.

Kim Sawyer has been recast as the new Director of Governance, and will receive £95,000 per year. this is up from £74,314 in her previous role as Head of Legal Services.

Chief Executive Gillian Beasley’s salary will remain at £170,175 per year although she claims not having had a pay rise for the last 10 years. Go figure.... We would still prefer that she resigns and lets someone in with hard nosed commercial and financial experience.

 It is probably because of the fuss that this Blog has kicked up that she wisely didn't carry on with her campaign for increased pay. The lady is a solicitor with expertise in Child safety, not in our view qualifications for a council in severe financial distress....

Director of Children’s Services Sue Westcott will see her salary remain at £125,000, which is a pity.

We think that her performance so far has been shabby (she still has not responded to our many requests for a meeting to discuss the dire state of childrens services and the continuing low pay of frontline social workers for an on the record interview. We can as a small Unitary Authority do much better do much better.

Buried away in the council documents is this little gem:
APPENDIX 8
 
STAFF IMPLICATIONS
Vacancy and redundancy
 
In order to deliver the phase one changes outlined in this document we are proposing to restructure a
number of teams and departments which may result in a number of posts being affected.
 
The table below explains the staffing implications.
Our approach to minimising any compulsory redundancies will be the same as in other years, includingdeleting vacant posts, redeployment of affected staff and seeking voluntary redundancies where we are able to do so.
 
This information relates to council staff only. The phase one proposals may also impact on our partners.
We will outline the impact of the phase two proposals when they are published in January.
 
Staff implications Total
 
Total number of affected posts 55
 
Minus 12 vacant posts to be deleted = 43
 
Minus 13 voluntary redundancy acceptances = 30
 
Compulsory redundancy total 30

    @PeterboroughCC Tory dominated Employment Committee today refused to overturn big pay hikes for senior officers.  @cllrdarrenfower
     

    Published salaries of senior staff as at 1 July 2013 does not include new salary increases announced November 20 2014


    BUDGET CUTS: In view of the out of control dire financial position the City Council finds itself in the positions/posts/function below marked in RED should be cut or merged. Many of the functions are legacy positions, which should have ended/vanished when SERCO effectively took over the majority of council front-line and back office services.

    Consider that many of the highlighted positions would not exist if a professional commercially aware Chief Executive was in post. Mrs Beasley the former council solicitor (specialising in childrens services) had to buy in the extra commercial expertise and support, as her own career background has in our view not equipped her office to run these essential business functions. She also needs the strength to stand up to any political pressure, and immediately 'slap down' officers and councillors who break the rules...we've not seen it so far...



    NOTE: From the council website. some of the name/positions may have already been removed or changed.

    OUR HUMAN RIGHT TO LAMPOON AND CRITICISE POLITICIANS

    THE HIGH COURT has ruled....


    People have a right to lampoon and criticise politicians and public officials under the Human Rights Act, the High Court has ruled.
    We have the full High Court judgment, saved as a page on here, which should save Cllr. Turnip (who we honestly and truly believe to be a serially useless local politician), a bob or two.

    Cllr Turnip (so dubbed this as he spent an astonishing £1,800:00 of Community Leaders Funding - designed for the good of the whole ward - on "raised vegetable beds for infants" at a very well funded local authority school, together with some other additional funding from the CLF to the same school, Cllr Harper is one of just 3 Governors - they should have 7 )

    We also note that www. park farm.org reappears as a website for Cllr Christopher Harper from time to time directing people to his Tory party webpage. When it was originally paid for by the Neighbourhood Watch, and he gave a clear undertaking to the PCC Solicitor and Marco Cereste Leader of Council, that he would take it down. Do not be taken in by Cllr Christopher Harper, or the certificates he displays. Simply there is no Park Farm Organisation.

    lampoon (lampoon) Pronunciation: /lamˈpuːn/ verb [with object] publicly criticize (someone or something) by using ridicule, irony, or sarcasm: the actor was lampooned by the press noun a speech or text lampooning someone or something: the magazine fired at God, Royalty, and politicians, using cartoons and lampoons.

    Derivatives: lampooner noun lampoonery noun lampoonist noun Origin: mid 17th century: from French lampon, said to be from lampons 'let us drink' (used as a refrain), from lamper 'gulp down', nasalized form of laper 'to lap (liquid).

    Editorial policy: WE DON'T CENSOR NEWS, we will however come down hard on lawbreakers, all forms of ASB - Anti Social Behaviour, and anyone or group who seek to disturb or disrupt our neighbourhoods and communities, or in anyway abuse or disadvantage our citizens.



    We are openly but constructively critical of all political parties (actual and sham), pressure groups, overbearing 'jobsworths' and those who seek to waste public funds, abuse public office, ramp up expenses, BUY VOTES and/or engage in any form of directed or robotic voting.



    Whilst accepting that many in Pubic Office perform a valuable service and make a worthwhile contribution, there are countless others who are frankly rubbish. We maintain a special watching brief for seriously useless, backsliding officialdom, politicians and councillors, especially those who cannot be bothered to attend important core meetings. We consider all representations and correct any facts that are clearly deficient.
