ONE of the questions in Wirral Council's ongoing consultation asks whether residents favour a switch in the local election timetable to complete elections once every four years rather than the present system where partial elections take place three in every four years.

However, Wirral's ruling Labour cabinet clearly isn't bothered about what residents think.

In December, it voted to change the election timetable long before the public consultation was complete.

Given the justified unpopularity of the current government, this switch obviously favours the Labour party.


This clearly demonstrates that the “ You Decide” consultation is an expensive, politically expedient sham.
