Exam Time Results!

Exam Results are in:

I know there are comments on this site that question the academic prowess of certain Rotten Metropolitan Borough Council Elected Members; however the 100% pass rate on the ethics papers may undermine this widely held view point.

No grade creep here, no exam marking changes a 100% pass rate, all candidates selected question three as the correct answer.

3 Try to shaft the hospital for £250.000 for a planning application   regarding car parking?

Well done boys and girls a gold star for everyone, no wonder it’s called Rotten MBC.
Now some controversy has crept into the news surrounding the exam results, some individuals who are not Elected Members have said that answer 2 is correct,
2 Adopt an open book approach to delivering community services and share back office resources to reduce costs?

Yes, they are right but not if you are a Labour Councillor at Rotten MBC.
Regrettably it has been brought to my attention (by the THT prefect) that following the heads up that the topic of Steel Action would feature in a future exam paper that the newer members of RMBC have been caught cheating by asking questions of their older and much wiser colleagues, they even asked some of those involved in the project, naughty, naughty.

It is also understood that the very mention of the words Steel Action resulted in a deathly silence descending on a room in THT with all eyes fixed on the big three, one started to perspire and loosen his tie, one started to cough and splutter so hard he went bright red and the final one clutched his chest while desperately looking for his GTN spray.

At this point a Member with First Aid skills considering the possibility of having to perform mouth to mouth resuscitation on one of the big three made himself scarce and let the GTN take effect.

Given the level of cheating on the topic of Steel Action the exam board are now looking how best to form the Steel Action question bank.

More exam papers to follow.

Exam Time!

Exam Question.
Subject Ethics.

Rotten Metropolitan Borough Council (RMBC) is a provisional Labour controlled Council.
This question is for Elected Members of RMBC and any Labour Party Member willing to answer to the question.
As requested by RMBC Elected Members this is a multiple guess question and you can use your big thick bingo pen to mark the correct answer.

Additional information.
The local NHS Hospital is facing a £15m cut in its budget that’s 7% of its operating budget; nearly 80% of its budget is spent on staff costs,
It is highly likely that the hospital will have to make medical and clinical staff redundant.
The outcomes for colorectal cancer at the hospital were below the national average and they are taking steps to address the position.

As an RMBC Elected Member do you?

1. Do nothing, hope they do not ask for help and when you need NHS care go to Sheffield?

2. Adopt an open book approach to delivering community services and share back office resources to reduce costs?

3. Try to shaft the hospital for £250.000 for a planning application regarding car parking?
