Hello Mr Osborne
Of course I have no problem answering these questions. All of this information is available and all decisions made were made inside due process and are legal. I will treat your questions as a LGOIMA request and you will recieve your answers within the statutory time frame.
On a personal note. I actually find my self just wanting to tell you to go away in no uncertain terms. You only ask these questions in election years when you are looking to stand for elected office. Therefore I find your requests ridiculous and time consuming and somewhat contradicatory. You are making inferences that council are illegally wasting taxpayers money when you are quite happy to use up officers time on these incessant questions for no public good and taking them away from tasks that actually benefit the ratepayers.
And..please do not send me any of your silly UPPER CASE REMINDER emails when we don’t reply to your questions after 2 days. The statutory time frame is somewhat longer than that.
And.. please go to the paper saying that I have insulted you. I would love the publicity right now.
