Leaks Activism

 

“Whistleblowers are exposing the secrets of the powerful and the foundations on which contemporary political and economic power relations are built”

Obviously not everyone likes , understands or supports what we do at Wirral Leaks.

And we’re OK with that.

However some people do like what we do and one has sent us an illuminating article written in the wake of the ‘Panama Papers’ leak titled : “Whistleblowers and leaks activists face powerful elites in struggle to control information”  written by Arne Hintz  – Senior Lecturer in Media , Cardiff University.

Now we’re not saying that anything we do is as significant as the leaks identified in the article but we do recognise that we are a very small part of an emerging news environment identified as the “networked fourth estate”.

For those interested in trying to understand how a culture of “leaks activism” has emerged internationally, nationally and locally might we suggest you have a read of the article and consider what the power elites might have got away with if it wasn’t for those pesky whistleblowers and leaks activists.

  1. G’day Lordly

    Talking of papers on whistle blowing I wrote a paper which I will send to you at a quiet time.

    My paper is titled

    Whistle Blowing on Wirral “Funny” Bizz and the CRUD and CRUDITES

    The gist My Good Lord is about “Highbrow” the genius and me blowing the whistle to the CRUD that is AdderleyDadderleyDooLally and the “Chamber Potty” ably abetted by Wilkie, Norman, Tour, Burgess, Armstrong, Garry, Jones (nurse rat) Jones, Green et al all fellow CRUD of who knew of the stealing of about £2,000,000.00 by Wirral “Funny” Bizz and the asset stripping Lockwood/Harbac and spent about £250,000.00 defending their fellow CRUD.

    You might ask Leaky who are the CRUDITES?

    They are the rest of 65 CLOWNCILLORS that let the CRUD go unquestioned.

    Only Stuart Kelly stood up to these obnoxious crimes so they got shut of him.

    Are they CRUD or just pure DROSS?

    Ooroo
