Hi Mr Burgess

I am chasing something specific here. Mr Madin came from my council after leaveing the finaces in a mess.

Action should have been taken before he got to your council.

It took me years to get this through the regulators

her is the outcome, http://www.crazycouncil.co.uk/alan-madin...

I wilkl go through that document again but i a,m not sure it give me the full finaces i asked for

Also, The ICO has suggested before that its not ok to just point a member of public to a full yearly accounts document to descover the answers.

All senior managments pay and perks are lists seporatly as well. they could have just provided that.

They make it difficult on purpose.
