Deggsy and Foulkesy may be notorious – but Bergman and Grant they ain’t.
Wirral Council obviously thought they could publish the Thynne 2 report and hope it would just all blow over during the silly season.
Sorry to tell you guys but you’re not getting off that easily as we intend to continue to serialise your deep and everlasting shame in gruesome detail.
Talking of gruesome – we’re talking gruesome twosomes, threesomes and foursomes on this particular post. For starters who’d’ve thought that ex-Wirral Council alumni Martin Morton and Emma Degg would ever blow from the same whistle?. Especially when the latter allegedly called the former “mad” – which let’s face it is a bit rich (pun intended) coming from someone who was “bedazzled” by Kevin “Addled” Adderley . A man who once wore a burgundy cummerbund and matching dickie to an awards ceremony where Wirral Council received a Most Improved Council award without a trace of irony or indeed fashion sense. Even enthusiastic cake guzzler Sue Perkins pointed at him as if to say : “I’m so glad I take the other bus to Hebden Bridge…..”
As we’ve previously reported it was the Morton/Degg duo , who independent of each other , instigated the Thynne 2 report. Which let’s face it has to be the most unlikely combination since snaggle-toothed halfwit Lib Dem MP Lempit Opik hooked up with a Cheeky Girl.
We note that Patricia Thynne rather ungraciously describes Morton in her increasingly looking pisspoor report as having ‘achieved a certain local notoriety as a whistleblower’. We’re sure he’d be delighted to have that glowing reference on his CV . Anyway we would have thought that Degg aka Uggs aka Spinderella would have been a more worthy contender for the notoriety tag. Although perhaps for different reasons!. A comment which will no doubt feeds into the victim schtick that Degg is still pedalling. The report states how Degg :“knew that as a result of this further investigation she will get even more pillorying in social media but it was more important for her to tell the truth.” Degg’s explains that “self preservation” led to her keeping schtum for well over a year before belatedly gegging in on the Wirralgate story. Oh come off it Joan of Arc shouldn’t that be “self interest”? .
Seems that Thynne was taken in by the serial eyelash flutterer and lets her off with a mild rebuke saying that Degg had showed a “rather surprising lack of political nous” by not coming forward sooner. Now I think we’re all agreed that if there’s one thing that La Dame De Rocket Dog did not lack and that was “political nous”.
If Degg was really interested in telling the truth perhaps she could tell us all about the infamous £48 ,000 payment she received and whether Foulkesy had any involvement in that particular episode.
Although to be fair and credit where it’s due , whatever Degg’s motive was – our guess is getting back at Foulkesy for the role he played in her demise – at least she spoke up. Unlike the cast of cowards who have either for financial gain , career advancement or self interest preferred to play the corporate game .
Step forward :
Graham Burgess – care to tell us how Frank Field attempted to “compromise” you by “demanding” you making £48,000 payments to the people who could bring his personal empire crashing down?
Surjit Tour – care to tell us how keen you once were to get your hands on the Wirralgate tapes for personal benefit and not the public interest?
David Armstrong – care to tell us when acting as Chief Executive you cravenly caved in and agreed that Field could appoint his mate Nick Warren to stitch us all up into making an unjustified payment of public money to people who just happened to press the ‘record’ button ?.
Joe Blott – care to tell us why you think co-ordinating a cover up of all the above makes you the very model of a modern public servant?
No , thought not.
