What a disgrace on the day that the national audit condem the city for it's incapability in finacial mangement.

This Council rewards failure and victimises those who speak up or demonstrate integrity or morality.
That tosser was not worth £2.50.

Glad to see the back of him all the same now how much to get rid of Bradley?

We need to stop this happening and sort this city out properly.

The Audit commission has put Liverpool Council firmly at the bottom of the list for financial management and claims that, properly managed, Liverpool council tax payers could be £100 a year better off meanwhile the Harbarrow is the latest in a long line of carpetbaggers to amass wealth far in excess of his abilities courtesy of the same council.

A suitable attraction for visitors to enjoy liverpool culture in 08 would be a fairground rid whereby they were suspended upside down over a pigsty causing their money to fall from their pockets. They could then watch as the pigs feasted on their money and there would be nothing they could do to stop it. They could return home, disappointed and skint, yet with a true understanding about what it is like to live in Liverpool 2008.

I'm sure he needs the money for his Spanish hacienda. Meanwhile, this puff piece by Warren Bradley has just popped up on the Guardian's Comment is Free pages:
http://commentisfree.guardian.co.uk/warrenbradley/2008/01/mersey_sound_finances.html . No mention in the piece of last year's cancelled Matthew Street festival. Such is his desperation to try & justify his sorry administration that he begins the article with a look back to the 80s (Degsy, etc.).
If you're not already registered on the Guardian's site, it's fairly straightforward, so you can make your views known.

Well why wasn't I told this earlier. I had to listen today to Warren prattle on about how the council inherited all these problems from the previous administration. All the time he had knowledge of the payoff to the Harbarrowboy. A good mind to cross over to the new outfit, City Talk (providing the Price is right) listening to Jimmy Corkhill today I could do the gig, standing on one leg.

Oh anonymous, you are looking at this from the wrong end don't do Liverpool down saying we are bottom of the list for financial management! We are TOP of the list for worst financial management. Always try to be positive, I say.

When I saw this blog last night I telephoned Radio Merseyside and asked the news desk why they are not on this story. When all day we have had to listen to Bradley's drivel and from the rest of the Lib/dems, excuse, after excuse. Merseyside said were unaware a settlement had been reached, only comment its still in discussion. Wanted to know my source when I revealed it, the operator went silent, I added there is no gagging clause and the shit will hit the fan very shortly. He ended by saying this would only be of interest to the 'chattering classes'! I am now starting to believe incompetence is an attribute towards being employed in the public sector.

It is such vignettes which make us proud of Liverpool. Good on you anon - and there are millions like you btw - for phoning up Murkeyside. It sounds very much like you got that there lee benyon fella on the phone - he wouldn't know a story if it walked into his studio, sat down and invited him to ask any question he liked. As he demonstrated when he fucked up the interview with Lee Forde and constantly interrupted him. No one at the BBC can be told they are wrong, or that they are (literally)ignorant, or that they don't have the right contacts, or that their sources are crap. Because they are the BBC and therefore superior to the rest of us. And if anyone publicly challenges them - as in your case - they start to get all hurt and offended. They also try to dismiss the story or the point, by saying it's not what our listeners are interested in or, as in your case, saying its only of interest to 'the chattering classes' (which makes up the entire BBC staff btw). The fact that this is city council taxpayer's money being wasted on a wastrel who cocked up, on the day when the same city council was found to be the worst in the country, is beside the point for the BBC. Presumably. You are right to be outraged anon, at the subservient, toadying, uncritical, unenquiring nature of those in charge at Murkeyside. Thoroughly unprofessional. Anything for a quiet life. It serves the city ill.

Radio Nerseyside has a woeful journalistic record over recent years.

The only guy to speak any sense there, Simon 'FTC' O'Brian, was summararily sacked just for saying out loud what most Liverpudlians think, i.e. the council is a disgrace.

How the council use Ripa to spy on you....
