If any of you would like to share your artwork we’d be delighted to publish in our Wirral Leaks gallery.
As you know we’ve been long concerned about the culture of Wirral Borough Council rather than the culture of the borough and what’s more we suggested a rebranding of their moto/logo during their ‘ Annus Horribilus of 2012. We felt as though their old “By Faith and Foresight” just didn’t cut it anymore and suggested a “rebranding”. We’re wondering whether to submit our efforts as part of our cultural contribution to the borough along with the following explanation of our artwork.
SERVE MEDIUM DICO VERUM – “Serve the public – tell the truth “.The crest will need changing too – the bird on the top suggests we’re all being shat on from a great height.The horn should be appropriately replaced by a whistle and the trident is all too suggestive of the three wise monkeys ( hear no evil,see no evil,speak no evil) and as for the lions rampant with golden handshakes – well what can we say???…..We think it is appropriate to maintain the helmet – although perhaps in a more appropriate colour – our heraldic advisor tells us that blue signifies truth and purple stands for justice.Eldritch (our former butler) – although not usually known to be “good with colours” – advocates purple as he says a purple helmet would finish off Wirral’s coat of arms off nicely…….
