So farewell then teen sensation Cllr Warren Ward who yesterday announced his retirement from local politics at the ripe old age of 12 (or thereabouts).
The former Bromborough Ward gave an emotional speech at last night’s Wirral Council meeting where he reminded everyone he was the first foetus ever to be voted into public office (or something like that).
Of course Ward proves the local dictum ‘if you can’t stand the heat get a nice little earner with the Wirral Chamber of Commerce’ (or words to that effect) . The Chamber now has so many Wirral Council refugees we’re surprised the Border Agency hasn’t raided the place and been asking various people with fancy titles whether they have the proper credentials to do the job.
By the way can somebody tell us where jobs with the Wirral Chamber of Commerce are advertised?Wirral Life? Tatler? Harpies & Queen? the Mayor’s parlour at Wallasey Town Hall ?
However having said all that we do feel that , with his relentless self promotion , Ward has found himself the perfect sinecure at the Chamber. No doubt we’ll be seeing pictures of Ward at various vacuous awards ceremonies for years to come… and certainly if his Twitter account is anything to go by, he’ll be keeping it classy !
