Re: Technical officer

Actually I think (and I've said it before), an important role for a technical officer is to advise about interpretations of legislation, consult upon potential legislative changes, provide expert testimony to MPs, or parliamentary inquiries, etc. If we take as an example, lighting standards... We k...

Re: Technical officer

A good example might be "mudguard clearance". Can you not come up with anything other than the same old 30 year old example? Surely if what you say is true there should be plenty more examples to roll out as evidence that are more recent? I could think of loads of examples. Sorry you don'...

Re: Name Change?

When I was elected for the se I was very unhappy about signing the code conduct, I took advice and in the end dined it. My doults about signing it have come to be true, as stated elsewhere by others on this forum the code is a gagging order. The council does not like debate. But you did sign it and...

Name Change?

If he felt strongly that this matter should be transparent and open to the membership did he breach the code or follow it? If there had been an intention by Council to withold the information from the membership then transparency might be a defence. But that was not the case. Council intended to fu...

Re: Name Change?

Gaz is right, I was NOT talking about Philip Benstead, the person who (thankfully) leaked the information is still a serving councilor. Though his card will be marked now. I'm not surprised if his card is marked. For a start he seriously breached the Code of Conduct he signed up to when he became a...

Re: Technical officer

The cycle touring community is a very small minority of the CTC membership these days although some of that community seem to think it should dominate other members' interests because of its history. Unfortunately real life is not like that. eh what else do they do? I only now of the CTC thru these...

Re: Name Change?

The voting slips wouldn't be sent out at all if it wasn't for one (unnamed) Councilor having a morals and standards by letting the membership know of the intended secret name and plan. Amazingly for which he has received much internal criticism from the Chair. Not forgetting that that Councillor wa...
