Ullo Foulksey got a new motor?
They’re certainly pulling out all the stops for Foulkesy’s Mayoral reign at Wirral Council aren’t they? Firstly news arrives that he has a new motor – a shiny new silver/blue Vauxhall Insignia replacing the Jag.
However it is with a wry smile we note the comments of David Armstrong ,a Director of Something or Other, who’s main role seems to be making press statements so that none of the flak gets back to Burgesski. Armstrong pre-empts any criticism of the purchasing of a brand new vehicle just before Foulksey’s triumphant ascendancy to first citizenry by emphasising Wirral’s proximity to Vauxhall motors in Ellesmere Port and claiming that Council vehicles are “replaced on the basis of age,condition and reliability.”
We think they should have stuck with the Jag – as frankly we think Foulksey is well suited to a clapped out guzzler that’s no longer fit for purpose.
Secondly one would assume that Wallasey Town Hall having had an expensive makeover would be fit for a Mayor making ceremony.
However we understand that the sickening,sorry … glittering event will break with Council tradition and be held at New Brighton’s Floral Pavilion.
The questions have to be asked as to why there has been a change in this tradition? who’s idea was it ? and who is picking up the tab for the new venue when Wallasey Town Hall would have been free?
We can only assume that one long-running Wirral Council tradition remains intact as like a low rent Lola it would seem “whatever Foulksey wants Foulksey gets” …….well, almost whatever he wants anyway!
