Firstly , thanks go out to fellow Wirral blogger John Brace who generously tipped us off about a Local Government Ombudsman (LGO) decision made earlier this year which was published this week:
Serendipitously it coincided with our regular leaks direct from Wallasey Town Hall and combined together they tell you everything you need to know about Wirral Council’s warped priorities.
As you can see the notoriously stingy LGO , who are rammed with local government failures , ruled in favour of parents who had made complaints on behalf of their disabled children who had been denied transport by Wirral Council. The LGO financially penalised Wirral Council accordingly. Well ,when we say Wirral Council, we really mean us ,the long suffering Wirral council taxpayers, as let’s face it, the people responsible for this injustice never pick up the tab – we do!
Compare and contrast this decision with the fact that a disabled super-toilet has been installed on the ground floor of Wallasey Town Hall. When we say a super-toilet we mean a toilet equipped with a heated seat and a douche facility. As let’s face it we all know the most prominent inhabitants of Wallasey Town Hall are full of crap!
Meanwhile another leaker provided pictures of new chairs being delivered this week to the Treasury Building on two consecutive days . We can’t help feeling that both leaks serve as a perfect metaphor for Wirral Council – as they appear to be forever protecting their own arses!
Under the circumstances we can only suggest that Wirral Council employees wanting to climb the slippery pole press the ‘Turbo’ button. The symbol represents your tongue kissing someone’s arse. This may mean the people who pay your wages evidentially don’t get a decent service but hey! what do you care ? – you get to pay your mortgage and pretend you’re a pillar of the community.
