You may have noticed we’ve been keeping our powder dry as we await the denouement of the the biggest scandal in Wirral Council history (yes , just think about that statement for a moment!).
Meanwhile we’ve had several of our loyal readers congratulate us on crashing through the 500,000 hits barrier on this site which surely demonstrates – that if nothing else – that there is huge public interest in what we publish. We’d normally make a song and dance about it but all we’re interested in finding out at the moment is , as a point of comparison, whether Power Boy Pip’s “Leader’s” Blog is still going?. Perhaps local Labour Party Communications Czar, sorry, Wirral Council’s Executive Policy Officer Martin Liptrotsky could tell us (in the public interest of course). Well we do pay your bloody wages Marty-baby!.
Needless to say the scandal to which we refer is due to be discussed soon at a much delayed Wirral Council Standards Panel meeting . Details of which are , of course ,entirely absent from Wirral Council’s website.
All His Lordship intends to do at the moment is sit back in his wingback chair , take a sip on the cognac, light the blue touch paper and await the BANG! . Although this being Wirral it is more likely to be a whimper!.
In the meantime we are indebted to Wirral Globe photographer Geoff Davies for this revealing portrait of Birkenhead MP Frankenfield in his summer lightweights . Judging by the perfectly placed horns it’s a case of “The Devil Wears Primark”!.
Although we know all too well that Frankenfield is the political hypocrite behind the biggest scandal in Wirral Council history – you’re not allowed to know that.
Unless of course you keep tuning in to Wirral Leaks!.
