Allegations of Misconduct against Swansea Councillors

There are three times more complaints to the Ombudsman against Swansea Councillors than any other Council. The Council Leader Phillips was forced to reign in 2012 over allegations of misconduct. Essentially none are elected with a majority of those entitled to vote. I made several complaints against a Councillor who has now retired, not before time. No one knows that he has retired. The Ombudsman seriously considered two of these complaints. The Councils indulge in forced development in small Welsh speaking villages by completely ignoring objections. The objection procedure is a grim farce. I have found that its Welsh language policy is a sham. On more than one occasion I tried to speak Welsh to an operator but was told that no staff could speak Welsh, only the operator. The Councils turned coat on the wind turbine development amid allegations of bribery. As Armiger I keep fighting wind turbines every day and take no notice of the Councils or A. M. ‘s. To a native Welsh speaker of Mawr, the Councils are irrelevant, frequently hostile. The Ombudsman does not consider complaints in any depth, its staff cannot speak Welsh and many are not from Wales at all, and it does not consider evidence even when given to it. It is a long standing joke that the Councillors should move across the road, meaning they should take up residence in Swansea prison, a grim, grey / black structure overlooking the old Vetch field in Swansea. Sometimes when watching Swansea Town at the Vetch with my late father, I could see the prisoners looking through the bars of their windows. I never had any liking for Swansea, Mawr is completely different and is totally misgoverned by Swansea. The Civil Centre is like a blackening concrete bunker, the Councillors sometimes stand outside it in wigs or toupees, so they all look like Donald Trump.
