“There’s many a slip twixt the cup and the lip…..”


And so Wirral Council’s Cabinet in their infinitesimal wisdom confirmed this week Steve ‘ Vote of no confidence’ Foulkesy’s ascendancy to Wirral’s official first citizen for the forthcoming year. Really?  This is the best we have ? They do say we get the public figures we deserve, but  this is surely taking the pith ?


Hmmmm….might we suggest there’s at least one person sitting round the table at Cabinet who knowing what they know might live to regret this ringing endorsement.

Of course the Cabinet decision is yet to be ratified by full Council in June – and they do say that a week is a long time in politics so let’s see what the next couple of months brings shall we?…..

  1. It’s not May that a meeting of the full Council decide on who’s Mayor (and Deputy Mayor) next year but June. Normally it would be May, but the local elections are held on the 22nd May this year as they are combined with the European elections, hence why the annual meeting of the Council is later than usual. I did email the journalist and the May reference was removed from the article.

  2. Methinks he doth ingest too much
    of buffets and of free repast
    that swinish drink it swells in haste
    the plump and roundish estomac
    Of what it does to teeming brain
    Can be seen in his discourse
    of reasons that we oft disdain
    but still we fill his bursting purse?
