Dear Herts Direct
Madam thank you for the reply

I assume that you are waiting for the leader of the council and the leader of the opposition to read my report FDS ;20120912 which they received yesterday and which proves beyond any doubt that the audit that your staff charged Hertsmere £4335.00 for is just a pack of lies .Ibelieve that only the numbering on the 19 pages is correct

Take as long as you like to see how the elected representatives deal with this fraudulent audit but at least they are aware of it and strange that on the week that the leader informed us that this was Democracy in Europe week hes Head of Legal was refusing me my constitutional rights to ask a question at full council on this audit

Yours sincerely,

tomcullen
