Her Ladyship and I were sitting round the fire , basking in the homely glory of autumn, perusing the Sunday papers and musing that Donald Trump et al would fit in well at Wirral Council.
It made us wish for the usual bread and circuses to distract us from the fact that the world seems to be run by sociopaths.
Then fortunately Verity reminded us that good news is on the way . And the name of that good news is ” Wirral Today”.
We guarantee there will be no bad news to be had in Wirral Council’s propaganda sheet “Wirral Today” . There is no doubt it will be shiny, bright and full of glorious bullshit.
But suddenly we thought to ourselves where did the inspired title come from after the gormless gits at Wirral Council realised they couldn’t use ” Wirral Life” as a) it’s already taken by a minor local publication and b) it’s an oxymoron ?.
Could it be that provincial,third rate , Floridean failure Martin Liptrot (aka Liptrotsky) thought up the newspaper title as a tribute to his role model – the original political editor of the failed tabloid “Today” and Machiavellian par excellence , Alastair Campbell ?.
This newspaper’s motto was “propa truth, not propaganda”.
Illiterate,deceitful and tacky – Wirral Today has found its template.
Let’s hope it meets the same fate.
