Celebration!!!

party-time-georgie

Get the party started :  Committee Chair Cllr George “Good Times” Davies brings Public Health approved party  food and a Wirralgate mixtape to the celebration!

The Birkenhead Constituency Committee have gone all Kool & The Gang on us. Although it must be said it’s more Gang than Kool. For tonight ladies and gentlemen wave your hands in the air, like you just don’t care (and let’s face it some of our local politicians clearly don’t)  : YAHOO! THIS IS YOUR CELEBRATION.

Although the Wirral Council website still maintains that Frank Field is still the chair of this particular Committee when he’s not,  his influence can still be seen in the the agenda for tonight’s meeting which reads like there’s a party going on right here, a celebration to last throughout the year.

As you can see we have :

A Celebration of Birkenhead in Bloom

A Celebration of Food Hub and Christmas Hampers Project

A Celebration of Keeping Birkenhead Clean

Now don’t get us wrong we like flowers , we like food and we prefer not to be knee deep in food wrappers and dog crap but spare us the glitterball hyperbole . Furthermore whilst we applaud people who want to make a contribution to the community and well-being of others , knowing what we know about some of the politicians on the Committee we question the motives behind the party political party poppers .

What’s more and what doesn’t particularly sit right with us is ‘A Celebration of  Food Hub’.

For a start – enough already with the word hub . We plan to set up an Anti-Hub Hub at Leaky Towers . The Anti-Hub Hub Sub will be a ‘task and finish’ group establishing synergies and developing strategies to eradicate the use of the word ‘hub’ . Perhaps by introducing fines for the gratuitous use of the word. All proceeds will be spent on our personal agendas ( i.e copious amounts  of booze).

Call us contrary but should we really be celebrating ‘food hubs’ in 21st century Britain? – especially when no-one , absolutely no-one thinks ‘starving mites’ are a good idea. Shouldn’t we be channelling our energies into why there’s an apparent need for them and exactly who’s agendas are being met by their existence?

But we think what makes us want to be a party pooper  is the fact  that isn’t it a tad hypocritical to be celebrating food hubs when Wirral Council is withdrawing funding from older people’s lunch clubs?

What’s worse they are now asking those luncheon clubs to approach the likes of Birkenhead Constituency Committee for funding to enable them to continue knowing full well that their finances are either already committed or frozen !

So forgive us for suggesting where Wirral Council and Birkenhead Constituency Committee can stick their party blower :

One thought on “Celebration!!!

  1. Nimbly avoiding the vast amounts spent on these wastes of time. When do we have a celebration of the demolition of Lyndale School,Ingleborough Fields,Girtrell Court;selling off of the day centres to a Wirral created Quango and best of all the opening of a pay and display car park that precedes the death of Wirral ‘The Leisure Peninsula’?
