IT'S OFFICIAL: LIVERPOOL IS THE WORST COUNCIL IN THE COUNTRY!

  • Audit Commission officially ranks Liverpool city council bottom of the league

  • Council is the worst of 500 other local authorities in Britain

  • Fireman Bradley shown red card by watchdogs

  • CoverUp Hilton still to collect £250,000 a year

  • So too will incompetent Finance chief Hasitall

  • Echo to launch astonishing whitewash
LIVERPOOL city council has today been officially ranked bottom of the league table of 500 local authorities in Britain.

The verdict has been given by the Audit Commission in their Comprehensive Performance Assessment Annual Review.

The Review gives the city council - which pays the chief executive and Executive Directors the highest salaries in the country - just one star for its overall performance. The maximum is four stars.

The shameful rating comes just a week after the city council was also found to have the worst financial management in the country, thanks to Hasitall and Fireman Bradley's incompetence.

But already, under-siege chief executive Colin CoverUp has launched a desperate spin operation to try and limit the damage and protect his position.

By all accounts the craven Echo appears to have swallowed the spin hook, line and sinker and will trot out the line that, despite languishing firmly in the Vauxhall Conference relegation zone, the city council is still poised to become European Champions.

The Audit Commission's Annual Review is followed next week by its overall four-yearly CPA Report.

That will again give Liverpool city council two stars for its overall performance - no improvement on the previous rankings and still wedged in the bottom 25 per cent of local authorities.

Close observers of the Liverpool Town Hall scene will notice that after ten years in power, the Lib Dims have woefully failed to make any improvement in services - although they have dramatically improved the bank balances of a handfull of fat cats

After a disastrous and costly experiment, nothing has changed for the better for the people of Liverpool.

Pay ingots, still get monkeys.

This really is the best show in town, even if the ticket price is killing us (quite literally if you're in need of social care, housing etc.)

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