We don’t know about Wirral Council but it has been a great start to 2017 for us. Leaks galore! – so we suspect that the year might just be about to turn a whole lot worse for them . However in the mean time we’d like to provide a fascinating insight into our public representatives – our betters, our role models – and their exemplary conduct.
Whilst we can only aspire the reach the dizzy heights achieved by that pillar of the community Cllr Steve Foulkes aka ‘Foulkesy’ we are fawningly grateful that this week he provided us with a masterclass in public accountability via the medium of nasal excavation.
Foulkesy showed us mere mortals how to earn those generous allowances at a Merseytravel Committee meeting held this week . Watch as he proudly represents the people of Wirral with his masterful oratory by thanking Merseytravel for ,er , doing their job by kindly letting everyone know that the trains weren’t running to and from Wirral .This seems to be Foulkesy ‘s modus operandi at these meetings : a) turn up b) make a fatuous statement c) claim the allowance .
We’d like to reassure our readers that the stills from the John Brace recording of this week’s Merseytravel Committee meeting are not photoshopped. You can see the live action at about 9 minutes in on this video. Don’t have nightmares.
