Wirral Council advertise on this blog but do not class us as a media organisation!

Wirral Council advertise on this blog but do not class us as a media organisation!

In an update to yesterday’s blog post titled Wirral Council ban Leonora and John Brace from attendance at Claughton byelection count! there was a curious statement from Kevin McCallum (Head of Communication) reflecting an Eric Robinson decision that we are not a “bona fide” media organisation (therefore not allowed to attend the count on Friday).

Yet below you will see a screenshot of Wirral Council advertising on this blog taken today with is a screenshot from my iPad.

Obviously this raises an interesting question that Wirral Council see us as a media organisation they can advertise with, but are not able to see us as a media organisation for the purposes of elections.

There is a screenshot below of my iPad to show what I mean. The advert is at the top.

Of course if Wirral Council wants to stop advertising for whatever reason, they only have to ask me and I will make sure their adverts don’t display in future!

But I just thought I’d file this in Wirral Council wanting to have their cake and eat it.

I could write another email to Kevin but I fear this is getting embarrassing (for Wirral Council that is)!

Below is a tweet about it from Cllr Pat Cleary.
