Wirral Council will be holding the most significant meeting in their history today.
What do you mean you haven’t heard about it?…… details are right there on their website. Oh no sorry they aren’t are they ?!.
Of course they’re not as Wirral Council’s gaslighting* of the masses continues unabated.
So what are we banging on about you might ask yourselves? – today (and possibly) tomorrow if the meeting is adjourned , in a room somewhere in Wallasey Town Hall , the details of the second (and hopefully more factually accurate ) Thynne Inquiry will be laid bare before a select few. A select few who have been sworn to secrecy and silence.
Not surprisingly we’ve made the comparison to the Chilcot Inquiry before – delays, bureaucrats protecting their political masters, and the Maxwellisation of the process as politicians bleat about how they’re being picked on and it’s all so unfair.
The only difference is it looks like The Chilcot Inquiry will actually get published very soon and discussion will take place in public . We even live in hope that there may actually be some sort of belated accountability for the Iraq war debacle.
But oh no not the Thynne Inquiry – what could possibly be so incendiary that it wouldn’t be allowed to see the light of day?. Could it be the truth about how some of the most senior politicians on Wirral conduct themselves and have been conducting themselves for many years ? . Destroying the lives and livelihoods of those who dared challenge their wrongdoing so that they could maintain their reputations and positions of power – and what’s more using YOUR MONEY to do it!.
As we’ve said before it is the poison that has infected the body politic of Wirral for far too long. An infection that the likes of the Local Government Association and various consultants have diagnosed (for a big fat fee) but chose to walk away from saying to Wirral Council : physician heal thyself!. The physician in this case being Harold Shipman.
Of course the Thynne Inquiry is just one half of this sordid tale. Does anyone know if the Nick Warren Review (allegedly completed in April 2015) will ever see the light of day?. No – thought not!. Whilst we might know that both of the reports from these investigations are different sides of the same sordid ,moneygrubbing coin known as Wirralgate – why is it that the people of Wirral aren’t allowed to know ?. Is it because they’re just considered to be the mugs kept in perpetual ignorance and yet are expected pick up the tab for covering up corruption in high places.
Therefore we ask is it too much to expect that Wirral Council communications tsar Martin Liptrotsky should be enlightening rather than gaslighting the press about today’s momentous meeting?.
