I HAVE recently been suffering from an acute sense of embarrassment which first started on realising that Wirral View actually existed and wasn't just a daft prank.

Things got a lot worse when I read how much of our money was being wasted on its distribution.

When things are so bad financially that these ridiculous parking fees are being brought in, it is worth considering that the distribution costs for the view for a year would pay for 180,000 hours of car parking (at the 70p for an hour rate charged for the first hour's parking) at West Kirby Concourse.

It has to be the dullest thing I have ever tried to read and I am so jealous of those residents who have yet to receive a copy.
