Oops! DASS Did It Again!


With the Lord and Ladyship away on their summer sojourn, it is I,Verity who has been left to hold the fort or more accurately the Towers! And no sooner had I bid a fond farewell to our esteemed entourage than another exclusive lands in the Wirral Leaks inbox.

Remember when Wirral Leaks exclusively revealed that unfortunate incident when a gullible Wirral Council employee was duped into parting with £45,000 to a fraudster claiming to be a care home owner?

Well in time honoured Wirral Council fashion lessons have been learned when it comes to security and data protection as it would appear that like a dodgy curry history repeats causing a bit of a stink…

I say this as it would appear the Department of Adult Social Services (DASS) are not unlike Britney Spears with OCD.
“Oops! I Did it Again …..and again and again and again”

A “Doctor” writes:

“Imagine if someone from WBC had accidentally emailed a breakdown of every care home and vacancy.  Imagine if this spreadsheet was disclosing sensitive commercial information including confidential information about homes which there are issues with and not placing with etc.

Imagine if this information was accidentally emailed to EVERY care home.

Imagine that WBC had previously refused to part with this information due to its commercially sensitive nature and providing a market statement.

Imagine if providers look at their own information – its not even accurate.

Imagine if the officer had just tried to recall the email.. ”

Well  at Leaky Towers I don’t have to imagine as I have the evidence of the malpractice right here before me.

(By the way can somebody tell me what is meant by “top ups” and why this applies to some care homes and not others – it’s all very confusing! )

Meanwhile all I am left to do is paraphrase a famous quote:

“To lose £45,000 may be regarded as a misfortune; to email a spreadsheet containing confidential information looks like carelessness…..”

  1. G’day Verity

    I am very pleased to meet you and commend you on your excellent performance in the absence of the nobility.

    You are not only beautiful My Heroine you are aptly named;



    a true principle or belief, especially one of fundamental importance.


    facticity, factuality, sooth, trueness, truth.

    The only reason the ISUS Reports are not in the public domain Honey Bunny either by will or LEAKAGE is that they are being closely guarded by “The Shyster” and “Phil the Dill”.

    Sadly we are not allowed to post pictures on this site Darl so you will have to use your imagination;


    Two Keystone Kops with tiny tiny tiny tiny tiny tiny tiny tiny tiny tiny little “coshes”.

    So My Verity I hope you will be at The Special Fudgit and Risk It Meeting on 22 July regarding Big, ISUS and Working Neighbourhoods so you can report back to My Ls’.



    Ps Verity My Darling “The Shyster”, “The Pretend Friend”, “The Dill”, “The Football Shirt” and “The Dunny Chain Wearer” are the very ANTONYMS of


    falseness, falsity, untruth.

    Pps My Veritous you could probably report back to my Heroes in France already as they are so predictable, the meeting will be a whitewash whitewash whitewash and then they will vote for it to go away, because as with every other committee they have what we like to call THE BULLY VOTE.

    Ppps I hope “The Dunny Chain Wearer” makes a guest appearance as this committee won’t be the same without him going on and on about “We have lessons to learn” “lessons to learn” “lessons to learn” “lessons to learn”.

    Luv you too Hun xxxxxxxxxxxxx
