The rottweiller McElhinney joins the lecture circuit - on behalf of Liverpool city council

HERE is some semi-intelligible, self-serving, hypocritical rubbish about a conference which is being held next month in London.
No doubt the cost of attending will be almost equivalent to McElhinney's weekly expenses claim.
However the conference, which is apparently about giving the public a better deal, will not cost anything like the millions which McElhinney's corruption cost the council taxpayers of Liverpool.
However, there is also an item at the end, which may be of further interest, since there appears to be some considerable doubt about who McElhinney is employed by and therefore accountable to.
You can skip all this tosh and go straight to the highlighted bit if you like.

Following the recent recommendations of Sir David Varney, which calls for service transformation through a better service for citizens and businesses and a better deal for taxpayers, CCA will host a public sector seminar on 24 April 2007 in London to examine the implications of the Varney report and to offer defined solutions to the challenge of best practice service delivery to both employees and citizens.BBC Broadcaster Liz Barclay, will represent the citizen in her role as chair, challenging presenters and delegates with their needs, demands and frustrations in mind. Hearing almost daily from people who are perturbed by the level of service they receive, Liz is ideally placed to carry out this role and add the customer dimension to all elements of the programme.Anne Marie Forsyth, Chief Executive of CCA, said: "The Varney recommendations will have a gargantuan impact on how the public sector delivers it services in the next decade and we have created a programme which will deliver key educational learning outcomes on the challenges of change and the role of best practice."Having already gone through a significant consolidation programme, Nick Lodge, Director of Customer Contact at HMRC, will share his approach to the next stages and will discuss if it is possible to deliver great service with fewer employees.With local authorities operating 50% of public sector contact centres, an interactive panel debate will look at how they meet the challenges that arise due to services becoming increasingly complex and rising demand from citizens. You will hear how our panel of local authority contact centres have effectively implemented change with in their centre and will understand what impact this has had on employees and citizens alike. Panel members include Dan Paul, Gateshead Council; Paul Twine, Westminster City Council; David McElhinney, Liverpool City Council, Isabelle Bignall of Cardiff City Council and Robert Irons, COI.

So the question is this - is the rottweiller McElhinney representing Liverpool city council or not? And if so, why hasn't anyone from the city council had the bottle to discipline or suspend him for the millions he has stolen from council tax payers?
Not to mention the blondes ladies who he has fixed up with jobs. (I told you not to mention that, ed)
