Birkdale Focus


Conservatives waste 1/2 million pounds of Council Tax payers' cash

Attempts to save Southport residents from massive Council Tax rises next year have been sabotaged by a secret deal between Tory and Labour Council bosses.
Concerned Lib Dem councillors have demanded that legal advice is obtained about the way that this squandering of over £½ million pounds has been forced through the Council.
In secret session, a Labour-Tory pact tossed out previously-agreed plans to cut back on bloated bureaucracy, which had been ‘worked-up’ by the Chief Executive. Labour and Conservative Councillors then forced through a ‘redundancy’ of the Council’s Chief Executive - without forewarning or information on the full costs to the Council. The Liberal Democrats fought this costly madness tooth and nail but were outvoted. Birkdale’s Councillor Simon Shaw has written urgently to the District Auditor asking for an investigation of what appears to be deliberate wasting of Council Tax-payers’ money

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
