I blogged a couple of weeks ago about how I found the Councils ‘newsletter’ a classic example of how to waste money in a time when we should be saving it. I will admit now that I am becoming a grumpy old man and this is a pet hate. But please read on!
This morning I received this Tweet from Nottinghamshire County Council, informing me that the latest newsletter is in the process of being delivered to all Nottinghamshire homes.
Our new Council leader is making herself highly ‘popular’ by looking to cut costs, reduce staffing – and generally cause mayhem withing our local council and Greater Nottingham area (yes – I still use this description, sorry Councillor Cutts).
However, she still appears to want to tell us all what a great job she is doing!
Why can she not use ‘free’ media?
TV, the internet, radio, local newspapers to name a few, spring to mind as suitable FREE conduits to ‘the people’. Why spend our money on self publicity!
Oh, and to really get me going – the headline is a peach!
Rant over – for now………..
