Private Eye magazine is going to have to re-name its Rotten Boroughs column “Rotten Wirral” the way things are going – so regularly are Wirral council failings recorded in that hallowed tome.
We know that suspended Wirral Councillor Jim Crabtree likes to court the press so no doubt he’ll be delighted to find out today that finally he has national press coverage of his exploits/exploitation.
We note that the Eye article quotes from the Liverpool Echo without acknowledging that it was actually Wirral Leaks that broke the story and that essentially without the leak to us it would have been covered-up,glossed over and forgotten about.
However unlike Cllr.Crabtree we’re not proud – as well we know that pride comes before a fall.We also note Eye rang the beleaguered councillor “but he hung up”.
Let’s hope Cllr.Crabtree receives similar treatment and that he is eventually hung out to dry – just like he and his colleagues have done to so many people over the years who dared to challenge the bullying,manipulative and utterly corrupt regime that runs Wirral Council.
