16 October (Part 1) - Shameless

Bexley’s Deputy Director of Children’s Social Care, Sheila Murphy (paid £108,708 a year with 32 days annual leave) gave no hint of the day’s news headlines at last night’s cabinet meeting. She referred to various performance aspects of her responsibility as “good” (three times) and very good (once). Another comment to come my way is not so flattering…

The standard of child protection services in Bexley is a disgrace. How can Bexley justify allowing Will Tuckley, Mark Charters and Sheila Murphy to stay in their jobs, let alone increase their already inflated salaries? Surely at least one of these people must take responsibility for the shambles over which they have presided?

To which the response must be “When did you last see someone in public office stand down after a monumental failure?”
