I originally started this blog as the bodged road blog because of problems with Vale Royal Borough Council and Cheshire County Council. (Read my early posts for more information).

When Cheshire West and Chester Council took over from Vale Royal Borough Council and Cheshire County Council contrary to my expectations things didn't get better they got worse.

As a result I decided in 2011 to include other information about the failings, incompetence and wrongdoings of Cheshire West and Chester Council and rename the blog accordingly.

If you have any information about the incompetence, failings and wrongdoings of  Cheshire West and Chester Council please contact me.


This blog would not exist except for the incompetence, bias and perverse logic of the York based Local Government Ombudsman & staff and the corrupt system of administrative justice they operate.

Qui Tacet Consentit - He who remains silent, consents.

Despite what some readers or councils may allege I support NO political party and I am not connected in anyway to any political organisation. I blog and tweet on issues that matter to me, public authority, watchdog and quango incompetence  & wrongdoing, in other words, this is not a Labour, a Conservative, Lib Dem or any other Party blog, it is my blog.

Nemo Me Impune Lacessit - No one injures me with impunity.

Legal Matters

In my view the information contained in this blog is provided honestly, reasonably, in good faith and in the public interest.

Article 10, Freedom of Expression of the Human Rights Act 1998, which is a qualified right, states everyone has the right of freedom of expression.

This right shall include freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart information and ideas without interference by public authority and regardless of frontiers.

This guarantees the right to pass information to other people and to receive information that other people want to give to you. It also guarantees the right to hold and express opinions and ideas.

It is unlawful for a public authority to act in a way which is incompatible with a "Convention Right".

A person who claims that a public authority has acted (or proposes to act) in a way which is unlawful under the Human Rights Act 1998 may, if he or she is (or would be) a victim of the unlawful act either:

* bring proceedings in any appropriate court or tribunal against the authority under the Human Rights Act 1998; or

* rely on the Convention right concerned in any legal proceedings.

Should an individual have a valid objection to anything I have published and be willing to provide me with the necessary evidence to support their claim, I will gladly correct the post objected to.
