Before we proceed any further we need to reassure our readers that of course we will be making a considered response to the momentous news that Frank Field has resigned the Labour Whip and detailing what we think are the REAL REASONS for the sudden (if not unexpected) announcement. For now just take it from us that the timing is particularly significant and the reasons given in Field’s melodramatic media appearances are entirely bogus.
Having said all that we don’t know whether you’ve noticed but , sickening as it is, we’re really enjoying the seemingly endless flow of sleaze emanating from Wirral’s political classes and particularly the ruling administration in Wallasey Town Hall…and so it would seem are our readers, for as you can see above, one of them has sent in a copy of today’s front page of the Liverpool Echo.
It is yet another example of the ongoing smear campaign ‘organised’ by local Labour politicians that has misfired spectacularly. We contend that if you were to walk past the latest edition of the Liverpool Echo , which considering the trash therein we would suggest is the only sensible option, you would be forgiven for thinking that the BULLIES (did somebody leave the Caps Lock on? ) and parasites referred to were Cllr Michael Sullivan and Wirral Council ‘leader’ Cllr Phil ‘Power Boy Pip’ Davies – and who’s to say you’d be wrong?
The Cllr Michael Sullivan ‘resignation’ is increasingly beginning to look like a dry run for today’s media onslaught from Frank Field – bar the anti-semitism rhetoric and the Martin Liptrot -penned (?) inflammatory language which seems to have resulted in Liptrot breaking the ‘PR Golden Rule’ of never becoming the story.
The question central to both Sullivan and Field is whether they can legitimately operate as independents – especially Sullivan. He was elected to the Pensby & Thingwall ward on a Labour (meal) ticket . Surely he owes it to people of that ward to stand down so that a bye-election can take place . It won’t happen – and the reason it won’t happen is that Labour very nearly lost the seat in the same ward at the last local elections and after this week’s events there is every likelihood that they would lose! – under these circumstances we would question as to what right Sullivan has to call anyone a ‘parasite’!
