Times are hard , money is tight.
Redundancies and cuts to services abound but Wirral Council show us that when it comes to prioritising their finances they’re on the money.
Your money that is.
Yes indeed ! news reaches us that they’re looking to spend money fitting out a new bar in Wallasey Town Hall.
That’s right a bar- a boozer – a watering hole – an alehouse – a gin joint.
A speakeasy where nobody speaks easy – well you never know who’s recording you!.
Now we know the recent goings on at the Town Hall have made it seem like a non-stop sleaze-fest but is installing a bar really sending out the right message? .
This is after all supposed to be what they’d no doubt call the “administrative hub” of the Council and not a particularly louche nightclub.
Or are they going hell for leather to secure that sin city twin town opportunity with Reno?.
Next thing you know they’ll be installing a gambling joint in Committee Room 1 – let’s face it it’ll save a journey to Chris Pluck’s betting shop in Claughton Village for some of our more senior councillors.
Or how about the Mayor’s parlour becoming a massage parlour ?.
Or a big neon sign outside saying “COUNCIL TAX & COCKTAILS”
No doubt the justification will be about refurbishing the bar being an innovative moneyspinning venture creating a venue for hire.
But how long before inebriated teens are vomiting over the new carpet and defacing pictures of Wirral Council’s former mayors?……actually on second thoughts they’ve convinced us, the Leaky Towers posse might pop in for a quick stiffener.
Trebles all round!.
CEO Stressed Eric shows his leadership skills and gets the party started!……
