Chief Exec Lockwood in The Times (“revolving door” syndrome)

Michael Lockwood_ 150px x 208pxJust when he thought it might finally have gone away, Michael Lockwood, Chief Exec of the council which follows animal-porn on Twitter, features in an article p18 of The Times (September 1, 2015) lambasting huge payouts for chiefs of large organisations  to leave, and then return shortly afterwards – the “revolving door” syndrome.

It reads: “Other examples of the ‘revolving door’ include Michael Lockwood, chief executive of Harrow council in northwest London, who was given a £168,000 payoff in February 2014 – only to be reappointed when the £163,000 post was reinstated by a new Labour council in November that year. He did not have to repay any of that money when he returned.”

Regular readers will recall that Lockwood came third out of the candidates interviewed, and won the role at “the insistence of council leader, David Perry.”

    Don’t blame Michael, blame the useless politicians you have managed to elect.
