Edinburgh Council’s supposed “Education Supremo” has shown the city that it is herself that is definitely in need of education – and pretty damn quick. With having just cut 16.5 full time front line positions from Community Centres and herself bordering on obese she is really showing the citizens on Edinburgh what takes high priority in her working day – “let’s shut down a tattoo studio because like me it’s “fairly close” to two schools. Definitely a clueless Twatette and a half.
It seems that power has gone to the head of twattette extrordinaire, Councillor Missus Marilyne MacLaren. Making suggestions of harrassment to a newspaper because a constituent contacts her and she totally ignores the contact is conduct could lead her into court for defamation of character and of course her snout is so hard into the trough that she would probably use taxpayers money to defend the action which her own comments clearly show she is guilty of.
MacLaren has already brought disgrace on her office since gaining power. During the last administration it was the FibDems who were constantly attacking then head of strategy for Children & Families (Fraudster Rosendale) and his performance. Indeed they were also passing information to us here at EdSucks for publication and their information formed parts of many posts here on this little site. However, since taking the helm of that very same department she has caused nothing but chaos in the department and the city with her on/off schools closures and total failure to speak to the citizens of the city about her plans. She has also complained bitterly about the mess the department was left in with the ultra-huge defecit – but she not only kept on the department’s previous head of strategy on but actually promoted him and he runs round the city calling her “clueless” to anyone and everyone who will listen. Is this the type of person we want in charge of the council’s biggest budget?
The vastly overweight councillor should take a couple of hours of downtime to walk round herself and seriously think of her actions in this case and also ponder whether being so overweight is indeed the correct message to be sent out by the education leader. Edinburgh Sucks will gladly fund her first weight watchers visit.
