Sherlock Holmes: So what can you deduce from the credit note from Rotherham Investigations Limited sent to Wirral Council Doctor Watson?

Doctor Watson: Well Rotherham Investigations Limited is a detective agency. This credit note is for £589.80 and has overpayments written on it. So it was for a previous invoice that was overpaid?

Sherlock Holmes: That’s a good start. If you check you will find that the department that this credit went to was Wirral Council’s legal department. The spending was described as to a “legal service provider”.

Doctor Watson: So what did Wirral Council pay Rotherham Investigations Limited to do at some point before November 2013?

Sherlock Holmes: Who knows? Rather mysteriously (considering that the credit note is for an amount above £500) only details of the credit note are on Wirral Council’s website and not of any previous payment to Rotherham Investigations Limited.

Doctor Watson: That’s scandalous Sherlock! How were the public supposed to know that Rotherham Investigations Limited were hired at all?

Sherlock Holmes: Obviously either someone at Wirral Council didn’t want the public to know that they hired a detective agency or the invoices of Rotherham Investigations Limited were all below the threshold of £500.

  1. Why wasn’t the money repaid to Wirral or do they intend using the private eyes again?
    Alimentary-not a spelling mistake! Who is Moriarty?

    • A credit note would suggest that Rotherham Investigations Limited aren’t refunding Wirral Council the £589.80, but will count it towards any future work.

    Just watching the news and the Chief Crown Prosecutor for the North West Nazir Afzal (leaving after four years) is saying no one should be above the law in this country.

    So how would Reprahnehpets or “The Shyster” explain the clowncils actions or lack of over Wirral “Funny” Bizz?

    They could have been honest with myself and “Highbrow” years ago and we would have acted differently.

    Wirral Labour will launch its manifesto for the 2015 general and local elections tomorrow.

    We are going to be honest, open and transparent and prosecute Wirral “Funny” Bizz!
