Some might say it’s always panto season at Wirral Council but we think it officially kicks off at tonight’s full council meeting which features a special guest appearance from whistleblower Nigel “Highbrow” Hobro.
To join in the festive fun Wirral Leaks have been working on a pantomime production of our very own . Coming soon is ‘ Pipperella’ which is our unique take on the Cinderella story starring the following :
Pipperella – Cllr Phil Davies aka Power Boy Pip. Will Pipperella be asked to attend the Queen’s Ball to pick up an OBE or even better a knighthood for services to the BS industry and the business community?
The Ugly Sisters – Cllr Steve Foulkes / Cllr George Davies aka Foulkesy and Georgie . Typecasting we know !. Will Foulkesyetta and Georgetta De Combova spoil Pipperella’s plans by their bungling incompetence and inability to tell the truth?
Wicked Stepmother – Cllr Moira McLaughlin aka Matron. Will the bossy old trout continue with her unquestioning devotion to the unworthy?
Baron Hardup – Asif Hamid aka Massive. Will struggling millionaire get another grant of public money and bail everyone out of trouble?
Dandini – Paula Basnett aka Pouting Paula . Will the dandy highwaywoman break the budget with awards ceremonies and costume changes?.
Prince Charm Offensive – Martin Liptrot aka Liptrotsky . Will Wirral Council ‘cheerleader’ ensure that Pipperella has a happy ending ?
Buttons – Wirral Council Chief Executive Eric Robinson aka Eric Feeble/Stressed Eric. Will the one who doesn’t get paid ‘buttons’ get out from under his desk and do the right thing?
The Fairy Godfather – Frank Field aka Frankenfield . Will all troubles disappear with one swish of his magic wand? – be it hunger , poverty or protecting your political agent with public money !………
