|Sheila Scott to quit politics...|
...and finally some really good news, the serially useless former adult care home owner Councillor Sheila Scott has stepped down as Cabinet Member for Peterborough Childrens Services, often Cllr Scott would turn up to important City Council meetings woefully unprepared, wing her way through questions, and at times seemed to be dressed by the nearby Oxfam shop.
Her classic radio meltdown interview on BBC Cambridgshire, is we understand being used as course material at broadcasting colleges, so at least something positive. Hopefully the new incumbent will realise the importance of the Cabinet role, and act as a real champion for the growing number of disadvantaged, battered and abused children in this City. They have been poorly served so far. Childrens Services in Peterborough have had a rough ride over the last decade, with Sheila Scott as Cabinet Member for Childrens Services, it was only to be expected.
There is nothing good we can say about Cllr Scott, which is a pity. We also hear that Mrs Scott will also be leaving politics at the next election next year. It just remains for Cllr Turnip to take the hint and follow her lead...
