My last post mentioned that there has clearly been political briefing of the press, before a report has been made public. As at typing this post (just before 12noon) the report in question is still not up on CPOL.
... okay, not ideal, but I'm not going to complain vociferously about the practice of politically briefing the press - I think previous Administrations occasionally adopted this tactic :-(
... but what is totally unacceptable is that a formal Council Communications News Release is now up on their website and the report is still not public. That's paid officers publicising an official Council report BEFORE its in the public domain.
Simply unacceptable ... not to mention damned unprofessional.
