READERS will remember that the Pembrokeshire County Council education department was found wanting by the Welsh Assembly, who parachuted in officials to examine the workings of the department and oversee changes in line with recommendations.
Now there are questions about the pension arrangements for senior, highly-paid, officers - decisions taken by a small group of councillors without discussion with full council.
Somewhat confusingly, the Audit Commission for Wales seems to think these pension arrangements are not lawful, but the members question its interpretation.
It will be interesting to hear the outcome.
Is this yet another nail in the Pembrokeshire coffin?
For those who dare to question authority, these words of Ulrike Meinhof may be of comfort: “Protest is when I say I don’t like this. Resistance is when I put an end to what I do not like.
“Protest is when I say I refuse to go along with this.
Resistance is when I make sure everybody else stops going along too.”
