Ce n’est pas un adieu, c’est qu’un au revoir
As we finally pack our bags for our new life in the South of France (and boy do we have baggage) we feel to need to finally clarify what the situation is with regards to the future of Wirral Leaks.
After extensive discussions with interested parties the situation is this – we have reached the abyss. As our friend Fred said :
“Beware that, when fighting monsters, you yourself do not become a monster… for when you gaze long into the abyss. The abyss gazes also into you.”
However – our work is not done. Why should Wirral Council have an easy ride into the abyss – and on a less philosophical note we want a million hits on our WordPress site (and we’re so very,very close).
So let’s peer into the abyss a little longer. There is unfinished business.
So whilst our faculties are failing and it may be a case of ‘begone dull care’ we understand our public service responsibilities (unlike those at Wirral Council) .
Not only are there are local elections in 2018 there are some unresolved matters that as much as Wirral Council and their influential partners want to shove as far away as they can – we’re having none of it!
Having said that any future leaks we receive have to be on the Exxon Valdez scale of damage. We just want to be in a position to raise ourselves gently up from our sun lounger , take a sip on our pousse-café and press the publish and be damned button.
Meanwhile it has been agreed that there will be an occasional column from His Lordship titled :
” Thoughts from Abroad”
And one from Her Ladyship titled :
“Thoughts from A Broad”
We also welcome contributions from approved campaigners and our esteemed regulars – The Prof, The Doc and Highbrow and any others who are able to meet the high standards of our regular roster of writers.
We particularly look forward to the work of Wirral Guerilla who tell us they’re taking our fight to the streets and as much as they admire satire they think that direct action is much more effective. We wouldn’t disagree. Go, Wirral Guerilla!
In the meantime you’ll have to endure expensive advertisement features such as this:
and expensive sponsored features disguised as journalism featuring the likes of Simone ‘Rhyming Slang ‘ White :
….and which of course WE all pay for!
But finally we’d like to give all of our readers a great big send off and thank you for all your kind comments and support over the years. Let’s just let’s hope our brakes haven’t been tampered with as we travel ‘La Grande Corniche’ to our place in the sun!
Keep on leakin’ !
