BabsGate5: Official position on Babs the ‘ex’ Chief Operating Officer of Westminster Council

Barbara Moorhouse

Position of Chief Operating Officer

Following the announcement of my retirement a report was made to Cabinet in May on the future role of the Chief Executive and the relative role of the Chief Operating Officer (COO). Following this report we have decided to streamline the senior management team and have concluded that the post of COO is no longer required going forward. Ms Moorhouse has made a significant contribution to future operations of the Council and leaves us with a strong financial foundation, an innovative managed service contract and a successful operating model for our Tri-Borough programme. I have put in place Section 151 Officer arrangements whilst the current responsibilities of the COO are realigned internally.

So yet another position that Babs has destroyed. She did such a masterfull job of incompetence this time that they abolished the post so it can’t happen again!

Do prospective employers not look at the history of an applicant when appointing such a position, this woman’s history is horrendous. If it wasn’t for the fact that it’s council tax payers that are ultimately the ones that get screwed, you could almost think they deserve what they get for not carrying out due diligence.
