10 Downing Street E-petition to abolish the Local Government Ombudsman

20-04-2007 13:42

Sir Geoffrey Chipperfield recommended abolition of the LGO because they were an unnecessary institution whose work could best be carried out by other bodies. His report was subverted by the interference of the then LGO and its allies. Since then the LGO has demonstrably failed to improve the system, and continues to exclude the public interest from their remit. Irrefutable evidence of its dishonesty and bias has been gathered by LGOWatch since 2003. The LGO is counter-productive to effective management in local government and a blight on the human rights of citizens looking to this publicly funded institution to act in good faith. On the rare occasions when it is found, the intervention of the LGO tends to entrench maladministration rather than put a stop to it. The continuance of this office is not in the public interest.

Date Rape Drugs as weapons

06-04-2007 19:42

I don't agree with judicial attitudes to drugs, I think all drugs should be legal. I just don't agree with rape, with drugs being used as weapons. I hate the insecure 'macho-men' who feel they can take who they want by force, but still need to spike drinks. Anyway, apologies, but this is going to sound like like a lecture by your mum or your local neighbouhood copper, or worse, like a Guardian editorial. I can't avoid that.
