Further encouraging news that the Wirral Council Labour group are trying to get their house of ill repute in order.
As we’ve previously reported they’ve already deselected “The Defector” and the “Wet Lettuce” who are so insignificant in the political scheme of things we can’t be bothered identifying them.
However the deselection of Jim ” Crabby” Crabtree by the brave members of the Bidston & St.James ward is particularly significant as Jimbo is very much part of the tight-knit Labour cabal which has helped bring the reputation of the local party so low.
We’re currently awaiting further news as we understand that all three councillors are appealing (in the procedural sense not in terms of attractiveness obviously).
We just hope faithful Labour members who’ve had enough of the bullies and the bullshit send out a strong message about the direction they want the local party to go and in Crabtree’s case that his departure from high office would be every bit as welcome as when he “left” Wirral Council when he was a lowly employee.
