THE OFFICIAL TONY PARRISH AWARDS 2006
Special Award Certificates are on their way to the lucky winners, as we speak....
1) HYPOCRITE OF THE YEAR
THE WINNER IS:
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.
2) McELHINNEY'S BLONDE OF THE YEAR (sponsored by BT)
THE WINNER IS:
Boris Johnson (for being the most attractive blonde of them all)
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)
3) QUOTE OF THE YEAR
THE WINNER IS:
Jane Kennedy MP for saying about Henshaw:"He is a man in whom I have no confidence and for whom I have no respect".
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 victimisation...it 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?"

The Harbarrowboy, Bradley and Henshaw

The liverpoolevilcabal blog
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

6) THE BLOODSUCKING LEECHES OF LIVERPOOL AWARD
The joint winners (and extremely clear winners obviously, ed) are:
Henshaw and McElhinney
6) PICTURE OF THE YEAR
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.
