Jeremy Hunt’s Green Industry Deception

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood

Jeremy Hunt has revealed that the UK is sitting on an energy goldmine, as wind power has generated record amounts of energy in the past year. In a keynote speech at Bloomberg’s European headquarters in London, the Chancellor delivered an upbeat message as he unveiled his plan to turbocharge Britain’s economy. At this speech, Mr Hunt hailed the UK’s renewable energy industry as a “big growth area”, which he estimates could be worth a trillion pounds by the end of the decade. He also pointed to recent announcements made by the National Grid’s Electricity Systems Operator, which showed that the UK has produced staggering amounts of electricity in the past year.

In the speech, Mr Hunt said: “Another big growth area is out green and clean energy sector. The UK is a world leader here, with the largest offshore wind farm in the world.

Will the Monitoring Officer continue to be UNACCOUNTABLE for her failure to comply with the Council’s Constitution at the Annual Meeting on 25th May 2022?

Will the Monitoring Officer continue to be UNACCOUNTABLE for her failure to comply with the Council’s Constitution at the Annual Meeting on 25th May 2022?

Merthyr Council Cover-up

It would appear that the Monitoring Officer intends to continue the new administration in much the same way as she always has regarding compliance with the Council’s Constitution.

The Constitution Stipulates, amongst other things, that the Annual Meeting will approve the minutes of the last meeting.

You will note that there is no such item on the agenda.

Will the Chief Executive or the Councillors dare to raise this question at the meeting?

Or will the Monitoring Officer be allowed to continue to be unaccountable for her failure to comply with the Council’s Constitution.

And so it goes on 🙁

The following screenshots show the Agenda for the Annual Meeting on 25th May 2022:

A UNIQUE CONSTITUTION FOR A UNIQUE COUNCIL FROM A UNIQUE MONITORING OFFICER

A UNIQUE CONSTITUTION FOR A UNIQUE COUNCIL FROM A UNIQUE MONITORING OFFICER

Merthyr Council Cover-up

The following screenshots show a Report prepared by the Monitoring Officer on the NEW CONSTITUTION for consideration at the meeting of the Full Council on Wednesday 11th January 2023

I have also included some observations/comments in between the screenshots.

The word UNIQUE is used often in this report.

See 1.2. preserve continuity and retain many of the unique aspects of the Council’s existing constitution.

Why does the Council’s existing Constitution have many UNIQUE aspects.

The following screenshot shows an extract from the New Constitution.

See 4.11.3 approve the minutes of Cabinet, Council Committees and Sub Committees

Current Constitution.

See 4.01.2 b) approve the minutes of the last meeting;

OBFUSCATION CONTINUES

It would appear that the Monitoring Officer will do anything to ensure that the minutes of meetings of the Cabinet…

MERTHYR COUNCIL CONSTITUTION. MONITORING OFFICER’S CON.

Merthyr Council Cover-up

The Monitoring Officer is presenting a report to the next Full Council Meeting on 11th January 2023

I have been reporting for years that the Council has not been in compliance with its Constitution regarding the presentation of Minutes of Meetings for approval as a correct record of meetings.

See links to some relevant posts below.

I have researched the new Constitutions of a number of Welsh Councils. All of whom have modified their Constitution based on the Model recommended to the All Wales Monitoring Officers’ Group, via funding from the Welsh Local
Government Association commissioned Browne Jacobson to draft a new model

under the Act.

The Monitoring Officer has, indeed, drafted a new Model Constitution that is truly UNIQUE compared…
