On Friday the Canberra Times dropped a bombshell with a savage attack on the operation of the ACT Government by the Ombudsman Allan Asher.
The public service watchdog has slammed the ACT Government for ignoring Canberrans’ complaints, saying it prefers to spend ”millions on consultants’ advice” than listen to the people it serves.
ACT Ombudsman Allan Asher also extended his criticism to the Greens and the Liberals, accusing them of showing little interest in fixing the problem.
Pollyanna, as usual, is blissfully ignorant of a problem:

However, Chief Minister Katy Gallagher said last night she was unaware that Mr Asher held such views.
”It has not been raised directly with me and I’m more than happy to meet with [the] Ombudsman to focus on continuously improving our complaints-handling processes.”
Anyone want to take bets on the ombudsman’s budget next year?
