We note the new regime of openness and transparency is as well oiled a machine as the previous regime. Some things never change, and one can only assume the two officers (Nora Loone and Nike Fowla) mentioned in the Freedom of Information request below were paid HUGE amounts of public money to bugger off and keep quiet, and that Wirral Council has something to hide. Why else would they not comply with such a simple request?
Check out the tortuous process concerned members of the public have to go through to see how WBC spend tax payers money. Are they morons ? Well yes.
Some time ago a mysterious picture was sent to Lord & Lady Wirralleaks at Leaky Towers by the “Camberwick Green Kamikaze Crew”.
At first glance we thought it was “Sir” Fred Goodwin especially when we were informed it was a picture of the former head of a discredited and much maligned organisation .
However it later transpired it was the picture of “Sir” Kevin Miller – or “Windy” as he was known by his adoring fan (yes that’ll be you Anthea!).
Now until the 4 week delay scandal came to our attention Windy had been a bit of a mystery man.
However after reading a quite astonishing FOI request by whistleblower Martin Morton on the Whatdotheyknow website (SEE IT IN ALL ITS JAW-DROPPING GLORY HERE
) it would seem that Windy Miller may be a bit Shady as well.
It would appear he was getting someone by the name of Mark Jones to write secret and not very nice reports about Morton and then forgetting all about it – only for his trusted Commandant Thomas Von Ryan to dob him in it good-style with the cry: “ It vos Herr Vindy – I vos only following orders”.
Although it must be said Von Ryan doesn’t seem to be the most reliable of witnesses as he appears to have a bit of a thing about having documents shredded. We are reliably informed this is known in Town Hall circles as “Von Ryan’s Excess” and would appear to be catching as it is also reported in the whatdotheyknow request that 6 days after Morton was front page news on the award winning Wirral Globe newspaper and 816 days after he retired as Director of DASS – a “very white haired” Miller is witnessed meeting with his successor as DASS Director John “Webbmeister” Webb – who is then witnessed shredding documents!.
However I’m sure there’s a perfectly reasonable explanation because as we know Windy is best mates with the Mayor Moira McLaughlin and she wouldn’t have let anything untoward happen when she was the Councillor responsible for Social Services now would she???????………..
