Now that Nick Paget-Brown has stepped down the prospect of Daniel Moylan leading RBK&C becomes the stuff of nightmares.
|MOYLAN SUPPORTER: MAD CLLR PALMER|
With no job in hand and none on the horizon, Moylan has plenty of time to employ his troublemaking skills.
There was a very good reason why Moylan failed so spectacularly in his last attempt to gain the support of colleagues. It was down to his reputation as a bully boy.
Do bullies make great leaders? Very rarely, and, at a time like this, a divisive character like Moylan would do even greater damage to the reputation of the council.
As far as colleagues and officers are concerned Moylan is a deeply unpleasant bully.
So who are his supporters in his bid for the £75,000 a year leadership role?
He has just three... his mad fellow councillor, Matthew Palmer; Cllr Julie Mills who managed to screw up the election campaign and Sam Mackover.
Conservative councillors....listen to the Dame.
If you back Daniel Moylan to replace Nick Paget-Brown you will not just be shooting yourselves in the foot: you will be shooting yourselves in the head.
You will bring the Council ever closer to being put into Special Measures.
If Moylan is income short tell him to get a job in the private sector....if he can!
