The Appalling

As you can see we’re delighted to have made the hallowed pages of Private Eye . The latest edition of the satirical magazine features a Rotten Boroughs article concerned with ‘the appalling Jim Crabtree’. Wirral Leaks readers will be very familiar with the torrid tales of ‘Crabby’ and Cllr Louise Reecejones as they unfolded on this blog . However the article is a neat summation of the story so far………

We’re just grateful we got an acknowledgement as a source  – something the Liverpool Echo  journo who previously flagged up our stories to Private Eye regularly failed to do.

From our point of view the really scary thing is we don’t think that Crabby was the most ‘appalling ‘ Wirral councillor of recent times. Indeed we maintain that some of the most ‘grossly offensive and indecent’ offenders  are still in power and making ‘appalling’ decisions about OUR LIVES. Clearly Crabby wasn’t considered important enough for the local Labour cabal to throw their seemingly limitless PUBLIC resources and extensive political influence behind him to save his sorry backside.

It must be galling for Crabby to be publicly (and justifiably) pilloried whilst his former colleagues keep on trousering those allowances and acting all important ,especially when -like Reecejones – he knows exactly what they’ve been up to…….

Welcome to Murkyside

P.E.Adderlee 003

And so it’s a Murkyside takeover in the latest edition of Private Eye’s Rotten Boroughs section with dishonourable mentions for Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson and our very own Wirral Council “leader” Power Boy Pip Davies.

Of course the star of the show from our perspective is Rotten Boroughs regular Kevin Addled and the revelation that he apparently has “agreed a “voluntary” departure package – thought to be worth more than £100,000″.

We’ll be bringing you further details and commenting on his departure package very,very soon.

But in the mean time – let us suggest that Mayor Joe and Power Boy Pip put aside their personal rivalries.

What they need to do in the greater interest of Murkyside is to finally acknowledge their commonalities. Forget about bloody Reno – the only twinning that needs to be going on is between Wirral and Liverpool and particularly their respective figureheads.

Consider this:

Firstly – their ambition far exceeds their intellect,integrity and talent.

Secondly  – they have deputies that are a complete liability.

In Mayor Joe’s case it is a deputy (Cllr Ann O’Byrne) who drove away from a car crash

In Power Boy Pip’s case it is a deputy (Cllr George Davies) who tried to drive away from a car crash known as Wirralgate! – although shamefully it seems you won’t be reading about that in the Liverpool Echo any time soon……………….

Rotten To The Core

Crabtree- Private Eye 006Crabtree- Private Eye 009

Private Eye magazine is going to have to re-name its Rotten Boroughs column “Rotten Wirral” the way things are going – so regularly are Wirral council failings recorded in that hallowed tome.

We know that suspended Wirral Councillor Jim Crabtree likes to court the press so no doubt he’ll be delighted to find out today that finally he has national press coverage of his exploits/exploitation.

We note that the Eye article quotes from the Liverpool Echo without acknowledging that it was actually Wirral Leaks that broke the story and that essentially without the leak to us it would have been covered-up,glossed over and forgotten about.

However unlike Cllr.Crabtree we’re not proud – as well we know that pride comes before a fall.We also note Eye rang the beleaguered councillor  “but he hung up”.

Let’s hope Cllr.Crabtree receives similar treatment and that he is eventually hung out to dry – just like he and his colleagues have done to so many people over the years who dared to challenge the bullying,manipulative and utterly corrupt regime that runs Wirral Council.

Rotten Boroughs AGAIN !

…..And Wirral makes another of it’s regular appearances in Private Eye’s infamous Rotten Boroughs column – How much do they spend on “Reputation Management” and “spin”… hardly money well spent surely? And we all know how it ended for Malcolm Tucker 😉

Doubtless Mr Norman will appear over in Weightman’s or another solicitors firm or LA very soon

Rotten Boroughs (Yup It’s Wirral Again)

Wirral Council yet again appear in Private Eye’s “Rotten Boroughs” section. It makes Lord and Lady Wirral Leaks heart soar with pride that we have such wonderful Town Hall officials looking after the public. So squeaky clean in fact that they make the Jonas Brothers look like Marilyn Manson.

The final sentence deftly sums up many peoples frustration –

The fact that only two heads have rolled, and far too late, is not cause for optimism”
