Wirral councillor's letter was political

Cllr Kelly

Cllr Kelly

First published in Letters

YOU published a letter from Cllr Stuart Kelly on Wednesday, May 21, which was very critical of me.

Your decision to publish the day before the local elections in which I was a candidate, without giving me the opportunity to respond was, I believe, very unfair and shoddy journalism.

I had, in fact, sent two very detailed emails on the issues Cllr Kelly had previously raised with me – my last email to him was dated April 22 – over four weeks beforehand. I received no response at all from Cllr Kelly to any of my detailed points.

I am therefore driven to conclude that his decision to write to you last week, and your decision to publish, with no reference to me, was influenced more by political considerations than a genuine desire to resolve any issues.

Brian Kenny, Formerly councillor for Birkenhead and Tranmere and cabinet memb

Ex Councillor Kenny, you could cry a Brown Bin full of tears, but just remember who it was who set you up and fed you the load of garden compost that put you in the position you ended up in.

How many times have you been told there is no reason to have Party Politics in Local Government, Councillors should listen and act in the interests of the local population that elects them and nobody else.

Not long back, you were endorsing abuse by voting to keep Steve Foulkes, then leader and portfolio holder for Social Services - whose senior officers had been repeatedly plundering the bank accounts of vulnerable learning disabled people.

You also endorsed £1 million plus in pay offs to these wicked abusers.

How dare YOU complain when you get unseated by a man of principle?

Now back off. WAY OFF.

Does this quote not demonstrate everything the author purports to comment on in all those who feel the wrath of his keyboard?? Clearly a case of "double standards" me thinks!! Unless the egotistical and bullying rant are not personal as my comments are not personal!!

Good point well made Hugo.

There is a clear lesson here. Just look after your electorate and forget the politicking.

I feel this could be the turning of the tide and Mr Kenny is the beginning.

All the best Cllr Cleary.
