EXCLUSIVE: 11 more invoices paid by Wirral Council including £2,241 for gym mats and £6,090 for a barrister

EXCLUSIVE: 11 more invoices paid by Wirral Council including £2,241 for gym mats and £6,090 for a barrister

                                               

Below are eleven invoices (although some are for credit amounts) paid by Wirral Council. The first four are for people in nursing homes or residential homes where Wirral Council pay their fees. It seems Wirral Council do the accounting for this using software so these are printouts of the payments made (although the last amount to Riversdale Northwest Limited is for a credit of £6247.57). The invoice after that for £2,241 is for gym mats and safety mats for Birkenhead Youth Club.

Then there is an invoice for £6,090 from Kings Chambers. The invoice from Kings Chambers was covered in more detail at Wirral Council paid barrister £6,090 for 2 day planning inquiry hearing & 5 hours of work.

The next invoice is a bit of a mystery. United Utilities refunded Wirral Council £10,070.32. The information supplied (a printout from a spreadsheet) shows this is to do with United Utilities invoices to the library and one stop shops section (which doesn’t really tell why the refund happened).

Cottrell Electrical Services invoiced Wirral Council £1,973.40 for work on Wallasey Town Hall.

Merrill Legal Solutions (who do transcription of legal cases) issued Wirral Council a credit note for £1598.92 for a case in the Liverpool County Court in 2011.

DMM Psychology Limited did a psychological report for a legal case. The cost was split between four parties (one of which was Wirral Council). Wirral Council paid £809.85.

BDH Solicitors charged Wirral Council £1369.80 although what this is for is a mystery as the “attached cost checker” was not supplied to me. The amount of the court fee would suggest it was either to do with a special guardianship order or an application for permission for adoption or wardship.

  1. £2,000 + for Jim Matts! Oh sorry Gym mats! where these made by Carling, as i believe when Carling do Gym mats there the best Gym mats in the World!

    • Spock: It’s life Jim, but not as we know it.

  2. Over two thousand pounds on bloody Gym Mats! Good bloody grief! Every day is worse than the last! Bloody Council!
    Well I’ll be damned if I sit back and say nothing about this latest slither of pleasure pumped out by the inquisitive eye of Brace.
    Frankly, I don’t want them to have bloody Gym mats. I don’t even want them to have a bloody Gymnasium that’ll allow them to lay their fat cholesterol blighted bodies upon their new bloody Gym Mats. Quite simply, I want them who ride this gravy train bound toward the land of milk and honey, to sit at their desks, do whatever it is they do and avoid wasting our public bloody rotten funds. Tie, tether and bind these parasites to their chairs I say and nail the bloody Gym door shut.
    It’s of no concern to me that the new Chief Executive Eric believes that a healthy workforce is a happy workforce. Let them remain as miserable as me as far as I’m concerned and, if they want to excercise and reduce their cholesterol to a more manageable level, let them run home after work fully laden with a sack of gravel. Rather that than expect us to fund this new charge to Excellence and the relentless pursuit of public service glory.
    And be under no illusions. These Gym Mats are the result of the new CE being recently told, ‘you’re cholesterol has reached staggeringly high levels and frankly, given the state of your arteries, you’ve become more swine than human. What’smore, if I called you a Razorback Suckling Sow I wouldn’t be being to unkind’.
    Bloody Gym Mats! Two thousand pounds and it’s all done in the name of good governance and the unquenchable passion ‘they’ all bloody have to deliver us, the rotten service users, a positive outcome. Well they can get stuffed as far as I’m concerned. On principle, I’d refuse to lay my fat face upon their coconut mats, do five hundred squat thrusts howling, ‘thank you Eric’. Never! I’d sooner remain fat.
    If Eric wants to bring his cholesterol levels down to a more human level then that’s ok with me. It’s a noble cause and you’d be a fool and a rotter to argue otherwise, but why does he now insist on acquiring all these mats and driving his workforce to lose weight, get fit and do less work. Put them on Statins I say. That’s the answer. It’s cheaper and we wouldn’t have been required to pay yet another completely unnecessary bill.

  3. G’day John

    I luv that super duper camera with the swivel so much.

    I would just like “The Football Shirt” “Humpty Dumpty” and “He who can talk for twenty minutes without breathing or saying anything” (Ha ha he didn’t get the job) to know every time they see “Tarrantino’s beautiful “eyes and ears on a tripod that “Highbrow” and I know without doubt that they are liars.

    I will keep reminding them publicly until the public apology is forthcoming.

    Ooroo

    James

    Ps Luv your work John and Bobby47
