A Farewell to Frankenfield

So as the dust settles from the General Election fallout we thought we’d send a long wished for farewell to  Frankenfield! And special thanks go to one of our readers who suggested a Smiths album cover as the inspiration for a fitting tribute  both marking the end of Field’s  imperious reign as the MP for Birkenhead and the death of his political career.

Yes , whilst we acknowledge  that Angie, Ali and Maggie ensured that Wirral remains an all red peninsula we all know that the big local political story from the General Election is that the most prominent and influential  politician on Wirral for the past 4 decades has finally left the building (or rather been bundled out the emergency exit  by his former party). As we know the ex-Labour man set up his own political vanity project known to us as  Frank Field’s BS Justice Party  but officially named as the Birkenhead Social Justice Party which was supported by a rag tag of local Labour ‘rebels’ including the hopelessly devoted ever faithful factotum and new electoral agent Cllr Moira ‘Matron’ McLaughlin.

However  Field  must have known the election result was on the cards when long serving Labour Party members had been telling him they were more loyal to the  Party than to the man himself  and wouldn’t be supporting his arrogant venture and especially when his former electoral agent Cllr George Davies abandoned him for an old mucker from Vauxhall’s whilst in pursuit of his sad little ambition of becoming the next Labour Mayor of Wirral  – a position which he would have relinquished if he’d stood by his former mentor and the man who got him (and other local Labour councillors) out of many a scrape of their own making. Let’s face it it comes to something when Field has to rely on the likes of former pottymouthed Labour councillor Harry Smith for  support.

Wirral Leaks readers will know that we’ve never been a fan of the man known to us as Frankenfield (and with very good reason) and will not mourn his passing into the political wilderness . We doubt whether  Mick Whitley , his Labour successor as the MP for Birkenhead will leave behind such an enduring legacy and after Field’s glorious forty years of wallowing in poverty that can only be a good thing.

However having said all that we are certain that we haven’t heard the last of the monarch of misery. No doubt Field will be penning pity party opinion pieces  for the likes of the Daily Mail and telling everyone in the Home Counties that Labour should have listened ‘to me! me! ME!’ and how Mick and the mob from Momentum have unfairly and unceremoniously unseated him from his rightful throne.

What’s more Wirral Leaks is far from finished with Field as he’ll soon play a starring role in our outgoing series of posts which we hope may finally explain to Frankophiles why we are rejoicing that his reign in Birkenhead is finally over…

  1. Somehow I don’t think we have heard the last of Frank,a knighthood and a well paid job as tsar on getting universal credit and pensions done with this Tory government.Or how about school tsar he’s already made a start with his friend nearby in Tatton.And on his final note about momentum forming there own party,he can see who he thinks the enemy are to his reactionary ideas

  2. Look out! It’s the BOOMERANG…

    ‘We have given them almost six years to own up and say it was all wrong, they’ve lied, cheated, hidden stuff, obfuscated and told bare faced lied.’

    • He was always in it for himself the self righteous wanker, he got air time for being a big time player in the government yet he was merely a little prawn in a big pond soon to be washout he’s does very little for Birkenhead other than drain the life out of it.
      Good riddance arsehole.
