Reader's message for Wirral Council: Pull your socks up or get out

FIRST of all, the brown bin episode.

Wonderful idea.

Put your garden waste into the brown bin, it is collected on a regular basis and turned into compost.

Brilliant.

Then some idiot on the council comes up with the idea to let them pay a little extra money.

It backfires.

People rebel and it turns into a very expensive fiasco.

Sack him.

They are collecting the unwanted brown bins today (which the public have already paid for), what is to become of them?

Next, the bright spark who has come up with the idea of turning the street lights off to save money.

I ask the question "where has he been lately?"

There are 16 street lights on 24/7 in Bebington, one has been on for 15 months.

Disgraceful.

This is bad housekeeping at its worst.

Let me remind the council you are being well-paid by the ratepayers to do a job which you are are not doing.

Pull your socks up or get out.

E Plested, Bebington

Spot on! There are regular calls for this shower to get their house in order, unfortunately they just stumble from one costly debacle to the next, if ever held to account out comes the cheque book and a big fat golden goodbye/hush money payment is made.

All we hear is 'sorry' or 'we're' right, you are wrong' or it's the other party's fault'. Frankly its a constant case of reasons and excuses from our Council, paid officials & Councillors - We ask for reasons & all we hear/get are excuses.

I too say do the job you were elected to do, never mind the excuses or in-fighting or to quote Alan Sugar "you're fired"... Without golden goodbyes, without notice payments, without compromise agreements, without gagging orders, without bonuses & witrhout excessive expense claims, the Wirral Gravy Train stops RIGHT HERE!

Residents in Wirral, No matter what part of Wirral you live in, the present members of the elected Council have done you no favours for over a decade, even more than ten years you have had some highly rewarded Councilors who have categorically let you down time and time again.

The answer is very simple, do not ever vote for one who has been in office for any length of time, "Pick a New Face" is a successful method of ensuring that those in power actually do the job they have been elected to do, and that is look to the interests of the local population and not some Party Political Idea.

It is not the National Government Coalition that have decided to Switch of Street Lights, or twist your arm to pay twice for a garden waste system, remember you did not ask for the brown bins in the first place.
It was not the National Government Coalition, decision to keep deep dark secrets about the abuse of care home residents, or to secretly pay off at huge expense the less than useless Managers and Directors who dragged Wirral Borough Council into years of Lies, Deceit, Poor Management, Mis-Use of resources and finance, nor using copious buckets of Whitewash to cover up serious Mis-Managemet.

It was collectivly the whole bunch of 66 Councillors who sat in positions of Governance on your behalf that allowed senior council officials and parasite Councilors who gained for Wirral the title of the worst managed and governed local authority in the entire British Isles, and you paid for it.

No matter what Political feelings you have or even if you have no Party Political Belief of any sort, do not ever vote for any Councillor Candidate if they have already been in office for over five years, "Just Pick a New Face" that way you get someone who knows they have to listen to the electorate first and foremost. And not some Party Political Official belonging to an organisation you
