The Mid Devon Advertiser has reported that Councillor amanda Forde is on th everge of quitting TDC because the atmosphere at forde House is one of misogyny and bullying.
She stated: "I have absolutely no desire to sit on Teignbridge Council... it needs a massive shake-up. They are not in the 21st Century. They are locked in a time warp."
We know all this, of course. The worrying thing is that Forde was until recently the vice-chair of the Overview and Scrutiny Committee, charged with getting to the bottom of several swampy shenanigans including the massive pay rise and pay off of Nicola Bulbeck. This, she claims, was met with abuse, bullying and intransigence. She also claims that she was silenced when she raised concerns about Chudleigh councillor Doug Laing, who was later jailed for beating his wife with a mallet.
