Special Award Certificates are on their way to the lucky winners, as we speak....



The smiling assassin Phil Halsall for threatening Tony Parrish with the Information Commissioner (he quaked in his boots! ed). TP had published 'personal information' about Halsall on the evil cabal blog - ie, that Halsall's son Liam had appeared with his band 'Abe' at the Summer Pops thanks to Halsall's mate, millionaire pop promoter Chas Cole, etc, etc. Readers will remember that Halsall was the hypocritical Henshaw lackey who published Storey and Finnegan's emails!

Other 'hypocrite' nominations:

Councillor Richard Marbrow. For being Inspector Clueless.

Colin 'Cover Up' Hilton, for turning a blind eye to the cabal's corruption over Liverpool Direct, The 08 Place, The Summer Pops, Harbarrowboy lobbying for Chas Cole, etc, etc.

The entire Lib Dem group (with the honourable exception of Councillor Jan Clein) for paying tribute and thanks to Henshaw on his belated retirement. (I bet they regret it now, ed)

Councillor Richard Kemp - for calling for the censorship of the evil cabal blog and supporting Henshaw, while having the brass neck to still describe himself as a liberal.



Boris Johnson (for being the most attractive blonde of them all)

Other nominations:

McElhinney's close colleague and friend, Sarah Parr (obviously)

McElhinney's close colleague and friend, Louise Gray (obviously)

McElhinney's close colleague and friend, (and dupe, ed) (obviously), Councillor Marilyn Fielding

McElhinney's Head of Human Resources, Colette Hannay (obviously)



Jane Kennedy MP for saying about Henshaw:"He is a man in whom I have no confidence and for whom I have no respect".

Other nominations:

Joe Anderson about Robbing Archer's Australian 'cultural' appointments: "The only Australian missing is Skippy the bush kangaroo."

Mike Storey to Matt Finnegan: "Don't worry, whatever happens, we won't let you down."

Matt Finnegan's attack on Henshaw and the city council: "I was suspended 18 months ago after obeying the wishes of the elected Leader of the Council. My only ‘offence’ was to obey democracy. For that, I have been subjected to a campaign of appalling has been a vicious, shameful little episode in the city council’s history. "

Warren Bradley: "Every allegation on the evil cabal blog was, of course, 100 per cent true."

Henshaw's repeated question to senior council officers: "How do you think I am doing?"

4) SHORTLIVED FRONT PAGE AWARD (sponsored by The Echo)


Henshaw and Storey

The Cabinet

The Harbarrowboy, Bradley and Henshaw

The Harbarrowboy and the American bullshitter, Kris Donaldson

The Culture Company apologists...

NUS President Jack Straw, the young Henshaw (who is still desperately trying to hide the fact that he got his degree at a mere Polytechnic) and some obscure stuffed shirt.

Macca and Heather
5) Greatest contribution to Information Technology

The winner is: (obviously)

The liverpoolevilcabal blog

Highly commended:

Councillor Joe Anderson for exposing the Liverpool Direct scandal of McElhinney's astronomical computer charges

Booby prize: Colin 'Cover Up' for stupidly sending the wrong email to Labour councillor Rose Bailey

Not nominated by anyone: Liverpool Direct


The joint winners (and extremely clear winners obviously, ed) a

Henshaw and McElhinney


Robbing Archer



The winner is:

The picture of Halsall's son Liam (pictured in stripy shirt second left) and his band 'Abe' with Status Quo at the Summer Pops. This was the picture which when it appeared on the blog, infuriated and worried Halsall so much that he was described by one council observer as 'a dead man walking'.

This was the picture of Robbing Archer and Greedy Henshaw that brought the funniest captions from readers on the evil cabal blog.

And we just like this one.

This deserved a mention, Liverpool Direct are getting their dirty little fingers into Stockport now, should someone warn them?
This nomination is for the best web bullshit of the decade.

Liverpool Direct Limited
Friday 29 December 2006

Main Content
The way forward
Liverpool's radical approach was to enter into a partnership with BT and form a joint venture company, Liverpool Direct Ltd (LDL), which is 80.1 per cent owned by BT and 19.9 per cent owned by the council.

Crucially, workers from both organisations are seconded rather than outsourced, so council and BT employees remain council and BT employees with the same pay and conditions as before. In total, 800 people have been seconded to Liverpool Direct from Liverpool City Council and BT.

The joint venture company is an innovative way of bringing private sector communications skills and investment to a local authority. The contract conditions are based on Treasury Taskforce Guidance for Public Finance Initiatives.

You missed out a little blonde!!!
Toni Byrne former trade unionist who sold all of the city council trade union members out just for a quicky with the dog, she also allowed the following pile of dung to be presented on the Liverpool Direct Web site.
As with the rest of the web page it is totally untrue what she proclaims it was awful then and is even worse now.
What about a sell your work mates down the river award?
Thirty pieces of silver comes to mind, but who was Jesus?
See below for this blondes lies...

"The industrial relations between the joint trade unions and the City Council has improved
massively since the management team have been in place. This has been contributed to by
those in HR who have ensured regular lines of communication with the trade unions and have
now got an open door policy. This has allowed joint working on issues and in many instances
averted escalation to grievance or dispute. I and other trade union representatives have been
treated with respect and not ridicule. The overall approach has led to a positive industrial
relations climate with joint effort this can be cascaded out across the Council which can only
benefit all concerned" -Toni Byrne, Secretary of the Joint Trade Union Committee and
Secretary of UNISON

By the way this person has nothing at all to do with trade unions, unless of course you include stabbing them in the back?
