The video is made my the internal Print and Design team, and explains the ‘Smarter Workplaces’ initiative currently ongoing down at the Civic Centre. This initiative is costing Walsall Council eight million pounds, as stated in the video itself.
The video is publicly available, but unlisted, meaning it’s not visible to visitors using the Council’s YouTube site, or findable with a search engine.
I can only imagine that the fact that the film is not publicly listed is an oversight, after all, why wouldn’t the burghers want to share this fine news with us all?
For all those shocked by the level of cuts ongoing at Walsall, this is a real slap in the face. They can find £8,000,000 for waterless urinals and follow-me printing, but when it comes to social and public services, including Greenspaces, not so much.
This, of course, in the wake of the great Allowances debacle, out of which nobody escaped unsullied. Councillor Andrew, whose initiative the Smarter Workplaces is, will of course be benefiting from a healthy rise, too. Austerity is too good to share with everyone…
Watch and learn, people.
Nice to see someone in the Labour group getting their teeth into the issues that matter. My gratitude to Gareth for sharing this.
This is scandalous.
