And so it’s a Murkyside takeover in the latest edition of Private Eye’s Rotten Boroughs section with dishonourable mentions for Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson and our very own Wirral Council “leader” Power Boy Pip Davies.
Of course the star of the show from our perspective is Rotten Boroughs regular Kevin Addled and the revelation that he apparently has “agreed a “voluntary” departure package – thought to be worth more than £100,000″.
We’ll be bringing you further details and commenting on his departure package very,very soon.
But in the mean time – let us suggest that Mayor Joe and Power Boy Pip put aside their personal rivalries.
What they need to do in the greater interest of Murkyside is to finally acknowledge their commonalities. Forget about bloody Reno – the only twinning that needs to be going on is between Wirral and Liverpool and particularly their respective figureheads.
Firstly – their ambition far exceeds their intellect,integrity and talent.
Secondly – they have deputies that are a complete liability.
In Mayor Joe’s case it is a deputy (Cllr Ann O’Byrne) who drove away from a car crash
In Power Boy Pip’s case it is a deputy (Cllr George Davies) who tried to drive away from a car crash known as Wirralgate! – although shamefully it seems you won’t be reading about that in the Liverpool Echo any time soon……………….
