How? Even, Why?

The chief executive of Scotland’s water industry regulator has quit after it emerged that more than £80,000 of public money was splashed out on “unacceptable” expenses including a trip to Boston and £200-a-head meals.

Alan Sutherland stepped down from his £183,000-a-year post at the Water Industry Commission for Scotland in the wake of a damning report by Audit Scotland that exposed the largesse of executives at the quango.

But they don’t do anything? Scottish Water discharges of sewage are hardly monitored.

  1. Presumably Misconduct in Public Office isn’t a thing in Jockistan? Why isn’t the troughing twat being forced to pay it back?

    Because he isn’t a tory. Obviously he isn’t, as anyone to the right of Jeremy Corbyn is automatically disqualified from any public sector chief executive appointment.

  3. Isn’t Scottish Water a wholly-owned state company, along with the Scottish Water Regulator a department of state, so the government is regulating itself.

  4. I have little doubt he will shortly land another extremely well-paid sinecure. Rather like that bint who moved from heading the Port of Aberdeen to overseeing the debacle that is Network Rail Wales/West before resigning last week.

    I wonder how much he and particularly she has/will pick up as severance pay? The gravy train runs a damned sight smoother than anything on Network Rail.

    P.s. largesse is a bit of an euphemism.

  5. Look up Kirsten England…ran out of York with pitchforks and flaming torches (I may exaggerate a tad) only to roll up in the Islamic People’s Republic of Bradistan on £250k pa as CEO or whatever three letter word salad of a job title she held…

    Retires on a full pension with years to on her contract. This after instigating a Clean Air Zone, that every other council under the West Yorkshire Mayor from Coronation Street, decided was bonkers…

    AND then gets appointed head of Bradistans 2025 City of Culture…on £250k pa….
