BRADLEY TO FIRTH - TIT FOR TW*T.......



There is one huge unresolved mystery about Kevin Firth's resignation letter.


It concerns the email which Fireman Bradley, then Cabinet member for Leisure, sent to his Lib Dim colleague Firth on November 14th, 2002.


Firth reproduced the email for our edification in his resignation letter, after carefully saving it for more than five years.


Here it is:




From: 'Bradley Warren' <Warren.Bradley@liverpool.gov.uk>


To: 'Firth Kevin' <Kevin.Firth@blueyonder.co.uk


Sent: Thursday November 14th, 2002 7.22 PM




"You have just confirmed to me that you are a complete and utter t-, and you have never lived in the real world, get a life and you might just realise that rosy little cup that you drink out of will eventually crack, this is when all the people will see what I saw a long time ago. How you can represent people from this city or anywhere else is a joke and I am absolutely convinced your little gravy train will come to an abrupt halt as you hit the buffers of life, and see what life actually brings once you raise your head above the parapit."




Councillor Warren Bradley


Executive Member for Leisure, Culture and Tourism


Church Ward


Liverpool city council




Leaving aside the horribly mixed metaphors, we can't help wondering how the Fireman will react when he eventually hits the buffers of life. Can we expect a gracious public apology to all those he has hurt? We doubt so, somehow.


But what is the missing word in the email?


The t- that even the irate Fireman felt compelled to omit? (We are still a family blog, so we have left one suggestion out, eds)


Suggestions on a postcard please - but this is hardly the language one would expect. Is it?

You say..."(We are still a family blog, so we have left one suggestion out, eds)", yet you put up the t--t pin badge? This is yet another sign that you're losing the credibility you held before. I used to think that your original stance against the "Evil Cabal" was worth it, but now this is becoming increasingly offensive and will begin to turn many of your original supporters off and this could easily turn them to sympathising with the Lib Dems. It's called the "bad-news bounce". Is that want you really want to happen?

The Tonys said...

ermm, we are sorry we have offended one out of 12 commentators. You could start your own blog, of course, and follow the magnificent example set by chucklebutty and pete price and tori, and then you might not offend anyone at all. not sure from your comment tho what you really find so offensive - swear words or the cabal or our very existence? or tongue in cheek comments about family friendly blogs? we could start a list of things which are infinitely more offensive than any of those of course. but thanks for putting us straight about the 'bad news bounce'. very enlightening.

My Mum wasn't very amused at the T*** word but she and others are still aware that this is one of the few places you will find the truth written.
Anonymous should realise this if he/she is a true fan, sometimes real words are needed to emphasise an issue.
Anyway, are you saying Bradley and his cohorts are not T***'s?

When did Pete Price become one of the bloggers gang?
Is he also fighting corruption or is he just shouting as usual?

Is it "tipsy spotter"?

Would the photo on the Turnip's old boss' website suggest so?

Tori seems to have lost the plot a bit. Does Tori really think that the Pete Price who has the Secret Diary is the City Talk Pete Price? Does Tori think the City Talk Pete Price, who is as mad as a badger, would seriously put a link on his Secret Diary to the SubCulture blog? And do tyou think the City Talk nutter would really want to work for Jason Harbarrowboy? Tori must be out of his tiny mind. The Secret Diary is a briliant, very effective and obviouly very subtle piss-take of the bloke who is as mad as a badger on CityTalk. Jay told me. Now can we just enjoy the talent that blogging Liverpool has?

Tori Blare said...

To Richard Maddock, yes I did indeed think it was and is one and the same Pete Price.
Does that make a difference any way?
Just his page is very arty farty and not political really so would not understand that weird world anyway?
Yes by the way I have lost the plot have you seen it anywhere around?

Tori Blare said...

I think the T stands for TRIBUNAL by the way.

Prof Y Chucklebutty said...

Tori, I have found your missing plot, it was in an old Barbara Vine novel my cleaner was using to stop the canata table wobbling. Do you really want it back, it's quite an intricate plot? It is only a cheap paperback price 2/6d but I am not sure if that's the real Price.
Think the edge has been chewed by a mad badger which may affect the value

Wasn't Richard Maddock in Hi De Hi?
The End

Chuckie, No that was me mother's plot, I'm getting cremated or dissolved?

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