Note : Screenshots removed at the request of M.Liptrot, esq.
My how we laughed at Leaky Towers when we found out that on the same day we questioned just how media savvy Wirral Council’s controversial spin doctor Martin Liptrot aka Liptrotsky really was that his Twitter account suddenly became protected and his Facebook page is no longer accessible to the public !. Which all sounds a bit of a PR disaster for Wirral Council’s PR maestro . Under the circumstances it’s ironic that the header on his Twitter account (98 Republic @nyblue66) reads :
“Talk But Don’t Say Anything”
I suppose we could always ask to become Friends with him on Facebook and mingle with Wirral’s political elite. The entry requirements to this exclusive club appear to be – Do you : a) support Everton Football Club and b) suffer from Malignant Narcissistic Personality Order .
Fortunately some Liptrotsky followers managed to salvage some screenshots from the PR car-crash for posterity.
As we think we’ve covered Liptrotsky’s blatant political campaigning/posturing we thought we’d pick out a couple of posts that particularly interested us.
We love the hubris of the post above – “Interested in managing your reputation? looking to avoid a major pr disaster hoping to build trust and loyalty with your customers , staff and stakeholder”
Talk about spin doctor heal thyself!.
However we were particularly interested to see a few comments from our old friend and obviously still Liptrotsky’s friend former Wirral Council Chief Executive Graham Burgess(ki) ! . I think we can all work out how this networking/nepotism thing works now can’t we ?. In a thread also featuring Labour insider Anna McLaughlin – scion of Cllr Matron McLaughlin – sniping about Liptrotsky’s office in Wallasey Town Hall Burgesski pops up to say :
“Been there……..Need decent accommodation…and more important good member support”
Of course we know about Burgesski thinking he was a Captain of Industry rather than a jumped up town hall clerk and his attempts to turn the town hall into a stately pleasuredome .
However we were particularly intrigued by Burgesski’s comment about “good member support” as we know it all went a bit tits up towards the end on the members front (if you’ll pardon the expression).
“Hopefully they’ve solved the second challenge !!” chips in Liptrotsky chirpily.
After this weeks revelations and evasions we’d be interested to know how that second challenge working out for Liptrotsky!?. It’s just such a shame he can’t share the benefit of his experience via social media!.
