Wirral Council does like to control it’s news and add a thick coat of spin in an attempt to gloss over the cracks ( gaping chasms would be more apt) to it’s unintentionally hilarious press releases.
Alas as the “footballer who cannot be named,” Bryan Griggs discovered you can’t control twitter. Massive kudos to the journalist who first broke the Martin Morton story, Justin Dunn who has started to name the main players in the Wirral Council debacle. Super injunction anyone ?
Here’s the tweets thus far :
“Maura Noone and Mike Fowler are the two senior managers to leave #WBC. There. Named. #OutInTheOpen #PleaseRT
They went under ‘compromise agreements’ – pay offs – signed hours before the Klonowski report was made public, albeit redacted
Superiors who knew for years allowed to leave first with handsome cheques.
#Including former chief exec Steve Maddox, ex DASS bosses Kevin Miller and John Webb #WBC #NameAndShame
Serious question mark over knowledge of current chief exec Jim Wilkie, his spin chief Emma Degg, and mayor Moira McLaughlin #WBC
Degg of #WBC infamously briefed Globe that Martin Morton was “a bit mad”.
Degg advised that her “Martin mad” nudge was to protect press from making fools of themselves #WBC
Degg, in charge of supposed impartial #WBC spin, used to be a Labour cllr in Chester”
