NSCSO JR appeal
News reaches Mr Mustard that a provisional, although highly probable, set of dates for the appeal of Maria Nash against the NSCSO Judicial Review judgement is 7 & 8 October 2013 (Mr Mustard will see you in court!)
The delay is in no way attributable to Maria Nash and her legal team who are ready to roll today.
Thus I don't want to hear Councillor Richard Cornelius droning on about how the delay is costing taxpayers £1m a month because:
- Mr Mustard is a council tax payer and would rather the appeal goes ahead
- many of the "savings" are only aspirational and in the fullness of time might just be shown to be smoke and mirrors
- the JR and the appeal have only been necessary because the council failed to consult
- the delay is entirely the fault of the council.
