Derek McInnes Must Go

Derek McInnes Must Go.

 

Derek McInnes Must Go, he said no to Sunderland and got a better deal, is he waiting to turn down Rangers for an even better deal to stay at Aberdeen?

Derek McInnes Must Go and the sooner the better, the players are struggling with will he won’t he mentality and just before the Rangers manager got sacked the Aberdeen manager was busy signing up the players with add-on contracts yet won’t commit to the club himself shows hes perhaps a greedy not to be trusted manager and makes the case for himself that he must go!

The Must Go case makes the Aberdeen board look really silly now in their attempts to move to kingswells must now be in serious doubt as they built their entire case on giving Derek McInnes the tools to succeed, well if he goes whats the point of the move at all?

Derek McInnes Must Go because deep down he really wants the rangers job, if that’s not true he should just come out and say so after all he is contracted to Aberdeen for another 3 years and the Aberdeen board should say hes not for sale at any cost but won’t which means, Derek McInnes Must Go!

Mark McDonald, MSP Resigns

Mark McDonald, MSP  Resigns

Mark McDonald, MSP Resigns for Aberdeen Donside, said he was stepping down from his role as childcare and early years minister.

He apologised and said his attempts to be “humourous” or “friendly” may have led others to become uncomfortable.

He is one of two SNP members currently being investigated by the party over possible misconduct.

It is understood the allegations against him are not criminal in nature. The other complaint being investigated by the SNP does not relate to a parliamentarian.

In a statement he said: “It has been brought to my attention that some of my previous actions have been considered to be inappropriate – where I have believed myself to have been merely humorous or attempting to be friendly, my behavior might have made others uncomfortable or led them to question my intentions.

“My behavior is entirely my responsibility and I apologise unreservedly to anyone I have upset or who might have found my behavior inappropriate.

“In light of my position in government, I believe it would not be appropriate for me to continue to serve in my role in the Scottish government at this time and I have tendered my resignation as a minister.

“I hope that in taking this step neither any particular woman or my family will be the focus of undue and unwarranted scrutiny.

“It has been an honor to serve in the Scottish government and I will continue to serve my constituents in Aberdeen Donside to the best of my ability.”

Well that’s what he has said but last week he refused to meet one of his constituents who had on-going problems with Aberdeen Social Work claiming he could not meet with them because of his role a Children’s minister.

We understand he also refused to meet the local charity Dadscare who wished to ask him why he refused to meet with them over their FOI request that stated that less than 1% of the 809 members of the public complaints into social services were upheld and 21% of employer complaints were also upheld showing the SSSC as not being fit for purpose of which he has responsibility!

THREE CUSTOMER SERVICE COMPLAINTS

THREE CUSTOMER SERVICE COMPLAINTS

Three Customer Service Complaints team are the pits, Three has lost the focus of customer and instead push new mobile contracts that are not wanted.

My wife was the victim of this latest attempt by three network to push their ESSENTIAL PACKAGE because over a 2 year deal they make more profit even though customers dont want it!

My wife was a loyal customer of several years and point blank refused to take on this Essential plan because it was a bad deal and compared to the advanced plan where her data was a personal hotspot three point blank refused to offer their online advanced plan telling her she was CRAZY to even ask for it and she was silly to even think about it?

It proves they don’t care about keeping loyal customers instead of profit margins, when my wife stated VIRGIN MOBILE HAD BETTER DEALS they stated VIRGIN uses a third party for services yes thats true but its true 4G not the crap 3G service we get in rural Scotland.

I listened to the 3 seperate calls to THREE CUSTOMER SERVICE COMPLAINTS TEAM and they were so rude and dismissive Three really can’t afford to leave their business to a third party Idia call centre?

Three has lost me this year after 9 years to the same sharp practices where they lied to me just to get me off unlimited data which was shameful and no matter how long you have been with them you wont get a reduction in price although they like to tell you “YOU HAVE BEEN SUCH A GREAT CUSTOMER” it means nothing, just empty words by THREE CUSTOMER SERVICE COMPLAINTS.

My wife now has a shiny S8 at £29, 14 quid cheaper than Three and £79 kept in her purse three networksgreat loss.

TRUMP IQ TEST FAKE NEWS

TRUMP IQ TEST FAKE NEWS

Trump IQ test fake news, everyone knows Donald Trump is as smart as a dumb ass here in Scotland and his line of I am smarter than everyone else is fake news.

Trump IQ test fake news, we know it is because on his twitter feed the guy who says hes the smartest in the room cant even spell correctly?

We challange this dumb ass to a proper mensa test held in public with Rexy boy and our money is on Rexy!

Trump is thick as mince he once took us to WIPO spent a fortune trying to steal a domain name from us in 2006, spent a small fortune and then just when he thought the job was done we rented it for another 10 years before it was transfered to him which meant he owned it but could not use it, yes he’s got a high IQ not?

If he’s so smart why is he surrounded by smarter people than him this must make him have an inferiority complex everytime he wakes up.

The truth is hes a dumb ass and its his own personal ego that’s bigger than anyones IQ by a country mile, he cant sack Rex because he knows hes boss is a dumb ass with a very low IQ and that really the Trump IQ test is fake news.

SSSC Not Fit For Purpose

SSSC Not Fit For Purpose.

SSSC Not Fit For Purpose as stated by Scotland’s leading Dads Charity, Dadscare based in Aberdeen, Scotland.

SSSC not fit for purpose, the case;

Dadscare has recently made a bold move to denounce the workings of the SSSC in public by stating the SSSC is not fit for purpose.

They state it’s a waste of time or next to a waste of time for members of the public to make any sort of complaint as they are seem to be simply not interested no matter what level of evidence one produces.

The charity thinks as do many other third sector organisations that the SSSC is only there for the employers if they are looking for a scapegoat as seems to be the case in a recent removal from the register in Fife.

If one looks at SSSC case files and the actual complaint details it’s clear the information could only come from the workers employers.

Dadscare has stated they have made what they believe to be very serious complaints against Social Workers in Aberdeen and Dundee childrens social services.

Just about everyone in Scottish media has heard rumours of what other professionals thinks about childrens services in the northeast of Scotland.

UPDATE, SSSC pulls the link for members of the public to report concerns about registered workers, why now?

SSSC Not Fit For Purpose

 

One other factor for all politicians that likes to read such things, the SSSC has a charter to print money every social worker has to pay £80 per year just to keep their jobs, if you dont pay your fees you dont work which could be why they discourage members of the public from filing complaints.

If word got out to the general population there was a body that could tackle dodgy Social workers then the service would get inundated because lets face it most end users don’t have a clue the SSSC is there for them most have never even heard of the SSSC because most dodgy Social workers wont ever tell their clients how to complain or even who to complain too, they just hope your to dumb to notice and that’s another reason the SSSC Not Fit For Purpose.

One of the biggest problems is if a member of the public puts in a complaint they are very rarely told the outcome of the investigations, how can that be described as fully transparent, the Scottish Goverment needs to intervene and make it more a opem process?

Link to Scotlands only charity that chalanges social workers on a daily basis to always act in a professional and hounerable way, where their reports are balanced and fair and where father parental assessments are required one will be carried out!

UPDATE;

Dadsacre recently recieved a complaint reply from the SSSC about an Aberdeen Social Worker they formally complained about and they stated “It may have been a breach of CODES OF PRACTICE but it does no impair on the workers fitness to practice.”

What so whats the point of brand new and very strong SSSC CODES OF PRACTICE makes no sense to us either and they had to wait 4 months to be told this.

The charity Dadscare was so concerned they request a freedom of information into how many charity complaints were upheld by members of the public, the result was amazing in the last 3 years there was 235 complaints made and only 2.15% complaints upheld against registered workers that was 5.025 yes a worker with a foot missing, that’s really accrete recording of the figures, not!

www.dadscare.org.uk

Sony Xperia Software Update v. 41.2.A.7.65

Sony Xperia Software Update v. 41.2.A.7.65 if your like so many other Sony Xperia users and owners looking for information on this update don’t bother.

Sony Xperia Software Update v. 41.2.A.7.65 after every update users are invited to put in their EMI number *#06#* and after you do that Sony in their wisdom will tell you even less than they did before you entered the EMI code!

Sony needs to work harder in telling users and owners just exactly what they have updated and why?

I have such a device and no matter how many updates they release on the Sony XZ it still can’t fix the video camera over-heating issues that shut downs most video capture at @60 FPS after 30 mins as it is so hot users can’t hold the device.

These Sony ZX phones should be recalled?

Other than that one large fault the phone is excellent.

UPDATE; Everyone in the community is saying its was basically just the September Android Security patch update which is great if Sony even told users it was that but you wont even find answers here, https://talk.sonymobile.com/t5/Xperia-XZ/September-patch-41-2-A-7-65-release-change-log/td-p/1259422 and if you get get then there then they must do better the next time…..over to Sony?

MORRISONS PARKING EYE APPEALS

MORRISONS PARKING EYE APPEALS

Morrisons Parking Eye Appeals is a complete waste of time unless you have a receipt or proof of purchase on the day of the alleged car parking offense.

They are not interested in any other circumstances and the fact it takes them over 4 weeks to notify you, who keeps food shopping purchase receipts for that long shows it’s a legal money-making machine pure and simple.

One of the readers of our blog has described their recent experience with Morrisons Parking Eye Appeals process and its scary how they try to get away with not upholding one’s genuine appeals.

Our reader had what they call a “Frustration of Contract” where by during a recent visit to Aberdeen Morrisons just off King Street, he met with a charity client who was a regular shopper there and had a few coffees and our reader became ill with a form of Colitis which is a very severe and disabling medical condition and was in their toilets for around two hours this condition also affected his blood sugars which he was a diabetic anyway so the driver could not drive even if was able to do so.

The disabled charity volunteers client was so worried about him he stayed in the store until he was able to leave the store and now he has got a £60-£100 parking fine as well!

Morrisons Parking Eye Appeals has so far rejected the appeal by its total lack of understanding and completely ignoring supplied medical evidence that our reader sent them in form of a recent doctor’s statement produced well before the parking offense.

In their response they completely ingnore his medical evidence and simply asked for a proof of purchase instead which could be a form disability disscrimination does Morrisons know that this company is doing this in their name?

Of-course should you find yourself in this predicament there’s no point going to Morrisons as they have no sympathy what-so-ever with customers with severe medical conditions as their line has and always be 2 hours is enough to do your business within our stores pardon the pun!

If you have a medical condition that might stop you driving for a few hours its best if you just don’t shop there at all!

Parkingeye is not very good at planning permissions and most sites have not got the proper planning approvals for their signages so check with your local planning office if they have this in place, if not you win your appeal on this basis alone and signs have to be at eye level.

If you’re like our reader just ask Morrisons Parking Eye Appeals for your 10-number appeal rejection code and take it to their regulator for a proper appeal which is a free service win or lose and seems very straight forward.

Everyone understands that parking in inner city areas could be open to abuse but if one has a medical condition that prevents one from driving if over the 2 hour max stay it says alot about the way you treat potential customers and others reading this should think carefully if they plan to shop there or any other supermarket that has the same policy against disabled customers.
