Major protest expected as Wirral councillors meet to begin multi-million pound cost-cutting process

Wirral Globe: Flashback to anti-cuts protest at Wallasey Town Hall in November 2012 Flashback to anti-cuts protest at Wallasey Town Hall in November 2012

A MAJOR protest is expected tonight as Wirral Council's cabinet meets to decide the first phase of a massive cost-cutting programme.

The civic hall at Wallasey Town Hall is being readied to accommodate the high numbers expected to turn up to hear staff terms and conditions debated - it is anticipated substantial reductions in redundancy payments will be agreed.

The council has sent out more than 3,000 letters to workers informing them their positions are on the "at risk" list.

Up to 700 could lose their jobs as the authority seeks to find ways to reduce its spending by £77m over this financial year.

Also on the agenda tonight are nominations for Mayor of Wirral with the former leader of the council, Cllr Steve Foulkes, being tipped to be Labour's choice to take office in 2014.

Cllr Foulkes as mayor.

Now there's a prospect to be considered while lying down in a dark room with a cold compress on one's forehead.

Are these people serious?

This is the man who wanted to close among other things half of our libraries.

By all means put a chain around his neck - but lock it to some railings so we can throw old fruit at him.

Short memories at the town hall - as EVER.

I know some of the protestors - they're old colleagues of mine pre-2003. A couple of them have been through hell after complaining to a certain Social Services Director, and getting nowhere - and I totally sympathise with their plight.

However some of them are not so easy to forgive. These are the ones who tended to go AWOL when there was a one-day strike - and either hit the sick or go on holiday, only to return with palms outstretched when the pay rises were being handed out.

These are the people who helped managers to build a phantom case against me built around my 'bullying'.

Now ask me whether I sympathise with THESE people - the ones who did their best to toady up to managers and have me sacked - The answer's no - I hope they lose their jobs, because they fully deserve it.

After I won my case, resigned and came to the office to collect my things, although their cars were in the car park, they were nowhere to be seen in the office. They had hidden somewhere safe until the coast was clear.

And that's the measure of them. Cowards. I've moved on now, and if they lose their jobs they'll have to do the same. But with no bosses to bail them out, this time. And that could be tough.

I forgot to mention, the prospect of having Steve Foulkes as a Mayor. I had some correspondance with him, and to be honest - All Talk, No Substance. But others like former council leader, Jeff Green, and the current leader, Phil Davies are not any better. Judge them yourself what they tell the press, in front of the cameras and WHAT they actually do and practice. The 4 weeks delay of care to Wirral Vulnerable residents saga plus disabled abuse, highlighted in AKA report says it all. Where were these Councillors, all 64 of them when all of this abuse was going on. They are equally to blame, rather than holding only those chief officers who buggered off with public money of £811,000 - so far. Many more are waiting in the pipeline to be awarded the same price - FOR FAILING.

Thanks for your comments FarooqB. Yet another person who seems to have had a rough deal from these chancers.

This council has an immense amount of suffering to answer for and when the central government hit squad / public enquiry / judicial enquiry finally arrives, it won't be a moment too soon.

We've had plenty of time to judge these people and the verdict is a massive thumbs down. I can't think how any council tax payer could sanction and approve of what they've been up to - power abusing, disabled abusing, cheating, lying, covering up, rewarding crooks and squandering our money for decades.

In the corrupted culture of Wirral Council where the natural laws of justice and honour are inverted; failure is always rewarded.

Hence Foulkes' catastrophic tenure as Council Leader is no barrier to his elevation to the Mayoralty.

Nor was the pitiful performance of his long time Chief Officer Steve Maddox an impediment to his being awarded an OBE for his 'services to local government'.

I confidently expect Jeff Green to be honoured with an MOT for his services to the road transport industry.

And surely it is only a matter of time until Phil Davies picks up a Birkenhead Bafta for his role as Best Crony in a Supporting Role.

And step forward labours vote Foulksey a man who failed the people of Wirral and abandoned the titanic that was the good ship destination excellence.
He jumped ship before walking the plank and now they want to give him the chains and limo and the all inclusive option for a year.
We don't need a mayor to carry out civic duties we have 66 cllrs who I am sure if the food is free and the expenses cheque is in the post will turn up for the opening of an envelope.

As far as Steve Foulkes for mayor again another sick joke after him overseeing the fiasco of the labour administration over the previous decade it would be a reward for incompetence if ever there was one.He will be mayor of that there is no doubt as his majority mates on the council will vote him in anyway.
Never mind Foulkes for mayor bring in the commissioners & try to run wirral council as a business instead of an old boys club. Anybody who reads the minutes and agrees with my opinion please let me know

Redundancy was set at 2.2 weeks with enhanced rates which the directors recently took full advantage of before the the rules were changed for the lesser mortals.

I thought that Moria Mac took the position of Mayor to a new low level with her treatment and expertise in the Whistle Blower saga.

But it seems Wirral can go even lower with Slimy Steve, what a wonderful ambassador for Wirral Council.

Not satisfied as being recognised as the worst managed local authority in the land, now bidding for the title of the most cynical to boot.

Let us Recap: Graham Bugess CEO brought in on a temporary contract, highly acclaimed and congratulated by the ruling Labour Cabinet. very quickl given a permanaet Contract for his good work. Almost before he had done any.

Graham Burgess CEO in his wisdom reconmends any redundancy pay out should be statuary levels, due to the fiancial situation.
Labour Cabinet, chooses to ignore that well meamt advice and do something different. Like pay outeven more money we do not have.

Question: What the hell are we employing CEO Graham Burgess for if the Ruling Labour Council will not let him do his job, and that is to save money and get Wirral out of the financial mess that Wirral Borough Councilors got us into in he first place.

You could not make this up if you tried, its an abolute farce but not comical, deadly serious.
