Big Brother is watching you and Wirral Leaks is watching them ….

 ORWELL

Modern technology is a wonderful thing .Where would we be without it when it comes to Wirralgate and those eye-watering recordings – having said that we would have thought from the deluge of information we’ve seen about the ISUS/BIG/Working Neighbourhoods whistle-blow that it wouldn’t take the unlocking of a Nokia phone to identify serious causes for concern (even for those highly paid executives for whom Excel spreadsheets remain an eternal  mystery)

However there are times when we do wonder whether modern technology is always put to useful purpose. For example , a sourcein the know tells us about the odd goings on at Wirral Council Solar Campus site on Leasowe Rd , and informs us that in the entrance hall there is a flat screen TV which runs looped images of what is happening in the offices.

If so – can it be true that it costs £8,000 per year to rent this system and if so what essential,enthralling images do they capture ?- the arguments over who’s turn it is to do the tea run ? ensuring that staff are not wasting precious resources photocopying their backsides ?

Talking of TV our interest was piqued by a case of some perfectly dreadful TV “personality” who was in a spot of bother for allegedly making a racial slur.  A lawyer from Equal Justice comments that : “ It is offensive,casual racism to boost ratings”.
Now what does that remind us of ?……

  1. Speaking as a member of fernbank farm, we have had no word from the council about their proposed site of where they will re home us, they have gone quiet again , are they ignoring us yet again. Although they have said that they will find us somewhere the equivalent or better I suspect that they won’t find us anywhere at all and we shall be stableless, after our dealings with them I find it hard to trust anything they say, we have heard nothing from them since the court case in February. Does anyone know what’s going on ?
    Yours c Thomson.

    P.s I think we should have cctv in the council offices so we could see the shenanigans they get up to

    Very appropriate and thank you for mentioning Big, ISUS and Working Neighbourhoods on All Fools Day.

    You would not need CCTV, or, even a NOKIA to see the criminality in all three of those grants.

    In fact you wouldn’t even need a calculator, or, own a football shirt, blind Freddy could see it.

    I saw it in days and reported to Wirral Borough Council 1,001 days ago.

    Ooroo

    What’s good for the LORD to clear away the ungodly, The Flood,
    Is good enough for us
    THE LORD used the waters, we used Excel

    Dominus Excel-sior
