Just how stupid is Russell Roberts the former RCT Council leader who lost his seat on May 3rd
Speaking to the local press he said
“I think, for whatever reason, I’ve been targeted by some members of the opposition"
No s**t Sherlock. The main reason - apart from the wasteful spending and arrogant attitude of your administration - is because you exhibited excessive greed in skimming over £100,000 from the public purse by lining up five jobs when one of them – leading the Council was supposed to be a full time post.
Any other employee trying that trick would have been ousted long ago.
Still the press reports that
‘Mr Roberts is now looking to the future and said he will look for opportunities in the public sector’
Would anyone like to place a bet on how soon Russ will find himself doing some cosy little consultancy job for his mates down the Bay at a very nice little salary? Or maybe a sideline with the WLGA in recognition of all his sterling work for them.
Jobs for the boys? Suits you Sir,
