Wirral Council Christmas Question Time (Bah! Humbug! Edition)


Wirral Council Christmas Question Time (Bah! Humbug! Edition)

                      

As it’s Christmas Day on the day I write this I thought I’d start first with the question most related to Christmas from Cllr Mike Hornby to Cllr Harry Smith (Cabinet Member for Highways and Transportation) which starts at 0:46 in the video above.

Cllr Mike Hornby, Conservative (Greasby, Frankby and Irby): Thank you Mr. Mayor. Errm, my question to Councillor Harry Smith who doesn’t seem to able to hear me, can you hear me?

Cllr Harry Smith, Cabinet Member for Highways and Transportation: Just about.

Cllr Mike Hornby, Conservative (Greasby, Frankby and Irby): I shall speak up. Is he aware that a large number of small children in my ward are greatly saddened when they learnt that Santa will not be coming to turn on their lights next year? Is he further aware that the once…

Mayor Cllr Dave Mitchell: Is that in relation to the report? Highway services contract, how does that relate to the report? Can I just stop you there and say that I’ve had the great pleasure and I’m sure my Deputy will follow the line we’ve continued for many years regarding the Mayor who’s attended an awful lot of occasions like this where he goes and switches lights on.

Cllr Harry Smith, Cabinet Member for Highways and Transportation: Mr Mayor, Mr Mayor can I just say?

Cllr Mike Hornby, Conservative (Greasby, Frankby and Irby): Mr Mayor, I..

Mayor Cllr Dave Mitchell: Just …

Cllr Harry Smith, Cabinet Member for Highways and Transportation: Allow me to say, sorry go on.

Mayor Cllr Dave Mitchell: Please relate your questions to the report.

Cllr Mike Hornby, Conservative (Greasby, Frankby and Irby): I will make a comment. Is Councillor Smith aware that the once jolly Harry is now being referred to as Ebenezer Smith? However, however will you not agree that it is not too late to change any thoughts he has in mind on this matter and that he should become like the Dickens character the spirit of Christmas yet to come?

Mayor Cllr Dave Mitchell: I would like you to try and answer that one.

Cllr Harry Smith, Cabinet Member for Highways and Transportation: Thank you. Err, Mr Mayor the Christmas tree lighting program is no longer part of my portfolio. It’s been dished out to the areas a long time ago and I think really what you have now is the area committees, which will may have the money to afford a program such as that or you could as Claughton and other areas have done approach the local business people who may well be ready to pay for the lighting.

Mayor Cllr Dave Mitchell: Thank you very much for that.

Cllr Harry Smith, Cabinet Member for Highways and Transportation: Mr Mayor, my children, it’s well been known that I am Mr Humble if you know what I mean.

Mayor Cllr Dave Mitchell: That report needs to be noted.

    • You’re too old fashioned. Mr. Humble is a character in the video game The Sims, who has no personality points and no interests…
