Now although this site has been described as “disgusting” and ” insulting and utterly poisonous” Wirral Leaks does try to at least maintain some standards – unlike some organisations such as that there Council who having given up even attempting to maintain any standards and are looking to ditch their own “ineffective” Standards Committee – see here
Wirral Councillors seem to be saying – “let’s just give up the pretence we try and maintain any kind of selflessness,integrity,objectivity,accountability,openness,honesty respect for others or leadership – just give us the gifts and the perks and allowances”.
Meanwhile the Leaky Towers coterie does try to exhibit a semblance of integrity and that is why, although we have been leaked confidential documents relating to a potential Judicial Review involving Wirral Home Owners Association and Wirral Council, we will not be publishing or commenting on them because we do not believe in interfering with due legal process and frankly the allegations of Mal-Practice (which we agree is rather an odd spelling ) in relation to a consultation by a public body strike us as frankly tedious and slightly tawdry ( as ever the issue is about filthy lucre).What we will say though is that Jasper Bartlett is a simply spiffing name. LOLZ !
What interests us more are the side issues – how consultations are generally undertaken by Wirral Council and how the Council’s Adult Social Services and Legal Departments are embroiled in a seemingly endless merry go round of controversy.
Indeed from what we hear that these days the Legal Department in particular seem to be specialising in hissyfits,walkouts and spectacular rudeness. Bring back Bill Norman – all is forgiven.
As for DASS – well what can we say?.After the lamentable Miller/Webb/Cooper era we were prepared to give the latest DASS Director Hodgkinson a chance,especially considering he inherited a big bumper bag of abnormality.
Unfortunately we have to say his handling of the 4 -week delay scandal indicates to us he’s from the same cookie cutter as his predecessors.The latest Director was not around when it was concocted and enacted – so what’s stop him admitting what we all know to be true –
FACT: THERE WAS AN ILLEGAL 4 WEEK DELAY AND IT WAS A SHAMEFUL EPISODE
As many former Wirral Council senior officers have learned – denial is a dangerous game to play.
As the annotation on the following Freedom of Information request dated 28th March shows the questionable practices surrounding the implementation of the 4 week delay in care packages continues to mount.
Which buys you a lot of nest eggs ……. for as long as the chickens don’t come home to roost.
Happy Easter, Lord & Lady WL x
