Shock Report: “WIRRAL COUNCIL STILL SHIT” say beancounters

WIRRAL-COOKIE

A new report by Wirral Council auditors Grant Thornton identifies “continuing concerns raised by regulators” and “governance weaknesses which have been repeatedly identified in key issues such as whistle-blowing, conflicts of interest, compliance with procedures, risk management, internal audit and providing value for money”

And yet despite the fact the report concludes that the council “did not put in place proper arrangements to secure economy, efficiency and effectiveness in its use of resources for the year between April 2012 and March 2013″ Power Boy Pip still sees fit to blame an administration that was not even at the helm during this particular time frame !!!.

He’s clearly the kind of character who having let off a particularly acrid sphincter whistle kicks the family dog before the missus gives him a clip round the ear!.

What’s more the report seems to make a mockery of the premature appointment of Comrade Burgesski to the permanent Chief Executive post.As commentators said at the time of his appointment, after a mere 2 months in post, shouldn’t such a position be bestowed only after it was clear that Wirral Council was no longer an organisation seemingly under the control of Billy Smart?.

It now appears that the man once voted the fourth most influential in local government ( “That’ll be a lovely eulogy on a tombstone ” trills Lady W ) is being made to appear by Wirral Council’s continuing woeful performance as though he’d be out of his depth in a kid’s paddling pool.

The fact that auditors have made this damning assessment is particularly telling as these are the type of people who compromise their integrity for a living.

As some of the main protagonists in this sorry tale are currently in the far east we thought it appropriate to ask Leaky Towers feng shui consultant Sum Ting Wong to provide some Chinese proverbs as wise words of solace in these difficult times:

“Failure is not falling down but refusing to get up.”

“The beginning of wisdom is to call things by their right names”

“Don’t consider your reputation and you may do anything you like”

  1. Beancounters are indeed the last persons to throw mud and each mild sentence ought top be considered a hammer-blow. It is a shame they cant stop generalizing and actually speak of detail…..

    Internal audit was active in covering up scandals simply by doing nothing in response to revelations in detail by fellow bean-counter. This cost the ratepayers more than £50,000 but was effective in discouraging pesky whistleblowers upending the wirral cornucopia. This latter in ISUS, Working Neighbourhoods and BIG fund.

    “governance weaknesses which have been repeatedly identified in key issues such as whistle-blowing, conflicts of interest, compliance with procedures, risk management, internal audit and providing value for money” {Grant Thornton}

    and by that we mean that wirral whistleblower simply written off as violent and vindictive individual even though he be a mild beancounter. As to the other whistleblower saying exactly the same story, well erm erm cant say both are violent and in beancounter razor gang lets say bitter ex-employee, that’ll do for now.

    As to compliance with procedures by that they can mean that vital contracts were left unsigned, that valuable work was not put out to tender and officers did not monitor a multi-million pound contract.

    Other persons who can fill in the gaps in Grant Thorntons general statement may do so!
