Now we know that we deal in satire at Leaky Towers but there are times when Wirral Council is simply beyond parody.
Escaping the dreary weather and austerity,cuts,redundancies Council Leader Power Boy Pip , Kevin Addled and Paula Basket from Wirral Chamber of Commerce fly out to the bright lights – turning their attention from the east and head west – the wild west of Reno,Nevada to be precise in the hope of making twin town arrangements and establishing trade links.
First of all we’re wondering as to what happened to wooing Chinese investors like Stella Shiu? Are we finally going to get an admission that chasing the Chinese dragon was a complete waste of time and money ?

Needless to say we’ll be following this development closely especially when we read that during their transatlantic trip the trumped up trade delegation trio met with a character called Geno Martini from Reno’s neighbouring city of Sparks.
You really couldn’t make this shit up.
