Our dear friends, at the sloppy Barnet Times, are reporting sketchy details of a report into the Iceland fiasco before it has even been published. Word reaches us that it may not have even been finalised. Further the report of the Working Party has no weight or force until it is considered at the meeting of it's parent Scrutiny committee on 25th March.
Obviously never ones to let the facts get in the way of a good story, and to fill the small gaps in their paper not taken up by wall to wall advertising, they have given two small paragraphs to an analysis of what we can only assume is a weighty and serious report.
Statler and I are waiting by our interweb machine for this report to be published properly and then shall be happy to report, at some length, on what it means and who should carry the can.
P.S. Why are the Barnet Times reporting Mr Nick Walkley, the new Chief Executive for GDfB, as 'defending the Leader' on this, similarly why is he, seemingly commenting on a report that has yet to be published? Quite huge gaffes, if correct, for his first week. Please let us know if we need to be corrected.
