Gym’ll Fix It

Good news for all Wirral gym bunnies with the announcement that gyms across the Liverpool City Region will re-open on Friday.

With gyms being allowed to remain open in Lancashire and Greater Manchester under Tier 3 restrictions it was clear that the government’s stance on imposing gym closures on the Liverpool City Region alone was becoming increasingly untenable and especially with widespread local protest including the open defiance of some local gyms who tried to remain open.

No doubt we’ll have local politicians currying favour and claiming it was them ‘wot won it’ for their constituents to pump iron. But we all know that’s BS. What we’ve witnessed on this score has showed local politicians blaming central government and central government throwing it back like a medicine ball and saying the agreement to close gyms was a local decision. As far as we’re concerned they’re all as bad as each other and couldn’t organise a circuit training class if an Olympic gold medal depended on it.

However what the situation has exposed once again is the scheming duplicity of Wirral Council and their appalling managers. The extraordinary allegations made by Nick Whitcombe of Bodytech gym in the video first aired on Facebook (see below) won’t come as any surprise to Wirral Leaks readers. It would seem that once again that Wirral Council has gotten itself in a shitstorm of controversy over a leaked telephone recording which whilst perhaps is not on the scale or seriousness of ‘Wirralgate’ it is nevertheless deeply troubling.

It is alleged that council officials were badmouthing the police and conspiring against gyms on Wirral and Bodytech in particular in trying to prevent the latter making a donation of £50K to mental health charities raised through a Go Fund initiative.

We are also familiar with the well worn tactics deployed to ‘sabotage’ or ‘fix’ individuals like Mr Whitcombe who stand up against the council. Once again we ask ourselves WHAT THE HELL IS UP WITH THESE PEOPLE? The notion of being a public servant seems to have been entirely lost .

We understand if Mr Whitcombe is reluctant to name the power trippin’ Environmental Health officers involved but we’re not. Naming and shaming on social media is the only form of public accountability that Wirral Council understands.

  1. When you vote, Never Re-elect the same rubbish that have let you down for years, always “Pick a New Face” that way the new Face knows if they do not listen to the Electorate, they will be out of a job. local Government is riddled with Party Political Parasites, Eradicate them, there should be no Party Politics in Local Government, Elected or Employed. local Officials must always work with the best interests of the Local Population that vote and not the Party Political Dogma. Work together to bring Government into the hands of the People. “ Pick a New Face” every time.

  2. The scum never did depart Wirral Borouch Council did it? All those reviews, turnarounds, LGA investigations, independent external enquiries and it didn’t stop the freewheelin , steamrollerin elected and unelected shite at Brighton Street doing WTF it likes. In fact, I’d say it’s gotten a whole lot worse.
