I am not surprised they do not signed these outrageus answers with their own names, but as "Information Rights". They are probably too ashamed!

Anyway, make an appeal mate. The public has right to know.

Looking at this website one conclusion comes to mind: to improve the way Stoke-On-trent Council works, one would have to sack the entire management team and start again.
