My last word on the subject and at Mrs Chucklebutty's insistence.
You have a unique opportunity to redeem yourself from current opinion and make us all eat humble pie. It is certain you will never be elected as a councillor again, there will be no loyalty towards you from your lib dem friends, even less so if Wally is kicked out on his arse next week. I don’t know the truth of what went on between you and the Labour party or your relationship with Joe Anderson but it is you that are now the pariah.
The Lib Dems have used you and now as a result of your decision you will be seen as responsible for the decision going ahead to close the two care centres supporting the most vulnerable people imaginable. That decision is based on a Lib-Dem lie and really due to cost-cutting, as a result of financial incompetence on the grandest of scales. The money wasted on crackpot schemes and paying off self-serving idiots and failures alone could have kept these places open for another couple of years.
So why not do something about it? Why not tell the Lib Dems that although you may not be able to work with Labour, that in all conscience you cannot support a party that is willing to sacrifice the care of such a desperately vulnerable group. And tell them that unless they reverse that decision, you will have no choice but to resign the whip and return to the Independent benches.
If they refuse, and they would rather give £2.5 million to Paul McCartney Productions than care for elderly Liverpool Citizens with Alzheimer’s and pay off the likes of Harbarow and the other failures with hundreds of thousands of pounds to go away, you will know the calibre of the people you have joined. You will know what comes first with the liverpool Lib Dem leadership.
What comes first for you? If you find that they care less about sick and frail elderly Liverpool citizens who have paid taxes to this city all their lives and instead care more about hiding their own incompetence and paying off failure and this sickens you - as it should with your family background - then you must surely leave them in their moral cesspit.
You are not responsible for whatever happens afterwards as a result of a hung council or any alliance between groups. You could even join up with Radford, at least he has some policies that reflect a social conscience.
But whatever the result, it is not your burden to carry. The people can decide again in 2010 as clearly as they did last week.
But you have so far prevented the will of the electorate being realised.
If you do not act, the burden you must carry and one of many decisions for which you will be held responsible or blamed is when the doors of Leighton Dene and Boaler St close for the last time.
The Andy Warhol saying about 15 minutes of fame has been applied to you in several newspaper articles. You have the chance for another hour of fame at least.
It could be your finest hour - a chance to show the people that you have the honour and integrity lacking in the Liverpool Lib Dem leadership.
Go ‘ed, girl, do it, show us all.
