Whilst we’re familiar with the old refrain – ” April fool is past and gone , so you’re the fool for carrying on….” we felt that the following leak was too significant to be included in our Wirral Leaks Weekly Dispatch #10 and have instead chosen to post separately, if belatedly , today :
“I’m not in the Labour Party and have no wish to be drawn into their internal rows. However I notice that the final item in the screenshot in your post below refers to Cllr Phil Davies vowing “that Wirral council are doing all they can to stop ACS’s in the NHS…..
Some people might say he’s a fool. Others less charitable might say he’s a liar. Some would use stronger language.
He’s opposed to the ‘STP’ (Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships), he’s opposed to the ACS (Accountable Care System) , so how does he explain his own Council’s policy to implement both – from 1st April 2018 ?
See the screen shot above from a presentation to staff by Wirral’s Director of Adult Social Services Graham Hodkinson (who by the way, also from 1st April 2018 , becomes the deputy at Wirral Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) , thus committing Wirral Council into NHS England’s plans to ‘slash, trash and privatise’ the hand that feeds them very well indeed).”
Perhaps Pip can feed this back to the Birkenhead Constituency Labour Party (CLP) at their next meeting or is he quite happy to continue to make fools of both his Labour colleagues and Wirral’s constituents?
