Slough Council Events Log

- Slough Council's chief executive's office emails us stating the corrected
May and July 2011 versions of Payments to Suppliers files are on the
council's web site. The council does not specify a location.
- Slough Council's data is here:-
- We tell the chief executive's office that the public will not know the
wrong version has been replaced unless the new versions (made in July 2012 to
replace the faulty May and July 2011 versions) are identified on the council's
web site as being different from the original faulty 2011 versions. The chief
executive's office does not acknowledge our email. We sent them a duplicate
copy on 5 August 2011. [SOLA 011028]
- The SLOB (Slough Observer newspaper) informs Slough Council's press and
propaganda department of our published Concerns about
Slough Council's Payments data. Many council staff visit the Concerns
web page. However, the SLOB does not print any story about Slough Borough
Council's Payments to Suppliers mess because the newspaper is afraid
to upset Slough Borough Council's top officials. Neither did
the SLEX (the Slough Express newspaper which moved to Maidenhead). Both
newspapers print news stories each week which were written by Slough Borough
Council's press and propaganda department. Both newspapers want the council's
paid advertising and, in the past, both newspapers were threaten by Slough
Council officials they would loose that revenue if they did anything to
upset senior council officials.
- Unidentified individuals at Slough Borough Council complain to Thames Valley
Police about the Concerns about Slough Council's
Payments data web page mentioning the council officials with overall
responsibility for the Payments to Suppliers mess.

- We spent 40 minutes looking at the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead's
Payments to Suppliers data for June 2012. RBWM (or Windsor as it is
often known) is, like Slough Borough Council, a adjoining unitary authority.
