You people are not making our semi -retirement easy are you? But then a semi is always a bit of an anti-climax isn’t it?
We did say we had unfinished business and we suspect that the powers that be have taken advantage of the fact that we’re out of the way in sunnier climes to try and sneak out of another long running scandal.
No chance! Thanks to the leak below we are confident we can draw a line under the Chris Beyga case. Regular readers will know that fugly bully Beyga was the Managing Director ( ha!ha!ha!) of pretend Wirral Council backed company Wirral Evolutions (Charles Darwin would be turning in his grave as far as the management of this service is concerned as it would appear to be the ‘survival of the unfittest’ ). And what’s more as far as we’re concerned this was just another ploy to deprive vulnerable people of essential services via pseudo-outsourcing. Before you read our latest leak here’s what we wrote last September – and once again it would appear we were spot on with our predictions and it would appear that indeed Beyga is a gonna !.
” It is great to see so many people here as we move from a public service to a commercial entity” we asked the question “What could possibly go wrong?…….”The answer to our question would appear to be : ” The same as usual”For those who don’t know what ‘Wirral Evolutions’ is – although we all pay for it – it is a : ” Local Authority Trading Company (LAC) bringing together nine key day centre and daytime services from across the area to continue to offer high-quality care for people with long term and learning disabilities”
Whilst those in charge at Wirral Council are relentlessly and recklessly pursuing the ‘public services/assets are best held in private hands’ model, let’s see how that works in practice with a couple of examples.Firstly, a Wirral Council manager with a penchant for awards ceremonies and expensive shoes ends up being the Chief Executive of the Wirral Chamber of Commerce (Paula Basnett) .Secondly, a rather more dowdy persona is made ‘Managing Director’ ( ha! ha!ha!) of a pretend company called ‘Wirral Evolutions’ ( Chris Beyga)Other than power crazed empire building using public assets and public money what do they both have in common ?That’s right the “The ‘N’ Word”. Needless to say the dirty ‘N’ word in this case is nepotism.What we can’t understand is how Wirral Council are prepared to pump public assets into both enterprises whilst throwing public accountability out of the window.However we have to give a round of applause to Wirral Council for keeping a lid on the Chris Beyga , ahem, situation using their timeworn strategy – ‘If it’s unmentionable , it’s manageable‘ – but then they can’t let their bogus flagship ‘commercial entity’ hit the rocks can they?We’ve known since July that Beyga has been conspicuous by her absence. No doubt tending the flowerbeds (but not at Dale Farm). As one of our sources writes : ” She also has always blanked the union but as soon as this happened she joined it.”Let’s hope Unison (for it is they) give Beyga the same kind of support they give to the rank and file who come to them when they’re being victimised by their managers. If so Beyga’s a gonna.Perhaps ‘ Independent Chair’ of Wirral Evolutions , Carey Bamber can clarify for us exactly what is going on just as she did with the ‘open and transparent’ (yeah, whatever) appointment of Beyga as ‘ Managing Director’ . Or perhaps she just lives up to her name – ‘ Carey’ – an imitation of caring. Or even better Cllr Adrian Jones can tell us what he knows about the allegations that were made against Beyga before she was appointed MD?Meanwhile all we know is that it doesn’t Beyga belief – it’s just business as usual!https://wirralleaks.wordpress.com/2017/09/21/wirral-evolutions-origin-of-the-specious/
Now read this leak and cheer! :
A belated Happy New Year to you all. I am cautiously optimistic that our relationship with Wirral Evolutions, Heswall Centre Management and staff may be on the point of improving.
As some of you will know, we have been led to believe that Chris Beyga (who has cast a long shadow over Wirral Evolutions since the first day she darkened its doors) has been subject of a number of disciplinary charges which have recently come to a head. The news today (as yet unconfirmed) is that after a prolonged suspension, she will now not be returning to Wirral Evolutions which may now begin to operate in a more sensible manner.
I am also advised today that the current temporary Chief Executive (Dave Fergus) has had his appointment extended to September 2018. This is potentially very good news for Wirral Day Service. I on behalf of ourselves, Oakenholt (Moreton) and Eastham Day Centres reached out to Dave Fergus earlier this month to take him up on his December newsletter offer of greater engagement. Dave has proven very keen to meet with the Charity Chairmen to “to explore how we can together re-establish connection, rebuild confidence and agree the way forward” and we have scheduled a joint meeting with him on the 31st January for this purpose.
This development with Dave Fergus builds upon other contacts with Wirral Evolutions senior management during Chris Beyga’s suspension which indicated their desire to improve relationships with the charities. However, I explicitly told Wirral Evolutions that the Heswall Charity would make no commitment to greater support or deeper engagement until we are certain that the Beyga era has come to an end and we can be assured that our efforts and support will receive the cooperation and appreciation that they deserve. Hopefully, the meeting on the 31st will provide this level of re-assurance and enable us to plan better for the future……………..Here’s hoping that the dark days are past and we can all look forward to better times.
We particularly look forward to comments on latest developments from ‘ Independent Chair’ of Wirral Evolutions, Carey Bamber, and bullying- Beyga enabler Cllr Adrian Jones . Meanwhile we have one request :
