What did the Mayor of Wirral put in his letter to councillors asking them to behave better?
When I was younger there was a cartoon called Stoppit and Tidy Up (yes I realise I’m showing my age) narrated by the late Terry Wogan.
In it were two characters called BeeQuiet and BeeHave (hence the picture above).
Prior to last night’s Council meeting, a copy of a letter from the Mayor was put on all 66 councillors’ desks, then orders from above meant the copies were gathered back in again, only to be handed out again later.
At the actual meeting itself Labour councillors voted to reduce the scrutiny function at Wirral Council and reduce the number of scrutiny committees from four to three. This was opposed by the Green councillor, Lib Dem councillors and Conservative councillors.
However the letter from the Mayor to councillors is a "BeeQuiet and BeeHave" letter.
There were also speeches from each of the three party leaders about the EU Referendum.
Video of the first part of the Council meeting is included below the letter, I will add the second part once it has uploaded.
