The old publicity shot above features Wirral Council’s new media tsar Martin Liptrot aka Liptrotsky. We can almost hear the photographer saying : ” Yes , Marty that’s definitely your best side ,sweetie.Now what we’re looking for is thoughtful – authoritative yet relaxed. Someone who is fearless in the face of a laptop. Lovin’ the tie by the way – the colour red is subliminal but the silk suggests you’re a man of sophistication and taste.Am I right in saying the look you’re going for today is champagne socialist?….”
A straw poll of readers decided that “Liptrotsky” was the pseudonym that best suited (and booted) the red hot Labour supporter who was appointed to a politically restricted post as council leader Power Boy Pip Davies’ personal bullshit whisperer !.
We’ve also followed up enquiries from our ever increasing readership and been informed that Liptrotsky works just TWO DAYS A WEEK for Wirral Council for his £45,000 bung – and at his side during those days is often a favoured journalist from the Liverpool Echo.
We presume that this lapdog journo is hoping for some exclusives from the crumbs off Liptrotsky’s table.As let’s face it all the local scoops have been coming our way lately courtesy of some very well placed (and disgruntled) sources.
We also understand that Liptrotsky also does the same PR job for – wait for it – Power Boy Pip Davies’ arch City Region rival Mayor Joe Anderson, despite the fact Mayor Joe and Power Boy Pip hate each other’ guts. Conflict of interest, anyone?.
Astonishingly Liptrotsky is ALSO looking after communications for Knowsley Borough Council AND Wirral Chamber of Commerce!. That’s some political busy body in the local body politic , eh folks?. And presumably well recompensed by the taxpayer.
Such is the power base that Liptrotsky has already built up that council leader Power Boy Pip Davies willingly takes his lead.Meanwhile Wirral Council CEO Eric “Feeble” Robinson continues to demonstrate his fearless leadership skills by hiding behind his desk in Wallasey Town Hall.
Somebody needs to tell Liptrotsky he is a Labour Party apparatchik – he is not an unelected de facto leader or a Chief Executive by default and he has NO business telling the council what it can and can’t do.
Oh yeah and another thing – apparently Liptrotsky lives “next door” to Pip in West Kirby……
So in conclusion if Mayor Joe doesn’t care that his “policy advisor” works for his arch rival Pip doing the same job and if after an initial burst of “outrage” the “opposition” couldn’t care less and if Eric Feeble is so compliant he doesn’t dare so much as squeak for fear of losing his job – then I suppose it is up to Wirral Leaks to up its game and make Liptrotsky earn his money !.
One final question for Liptrotsky – what do you know about “Wirralgate”? – well might we suggest you keep reading Wirral Leaks because you’re about to learn a whole lot more…………
