A week ago I wrote Are Wirral councillors about to make another Town Hall bungle on education? and since writing that story from the outside it looks like Wirral Council has descended into an episode of The Thick of It.

One can just imagine the Wirral Council equivalent to Malcolm Tucker shouting at people, “Who’s going to resign? Who’s going to get sacked?”

The answers to both those questions (in the order they are asked) being Julia Hassall (Director of Children’s Services) and Cllr Tony Smith (Cabinet Member for Children and Family Services).

I’m sure politicians will be making political capital out of this change in the next few days.

Tonight, Wirral Council councillors meet to decide on a new Mayor (Cllr Ann McLachlan) and a new Deputy Mayor (Cllr Geoffrey Watt).

The political fireworks on this story look set to go off tomorrow evening.

If you click on any of the buttons below, you’ll be doing me a favour by sharing this result with other people.
