In one corner of the Wirral was a town called West Kirby.

In the summer holidays families enjoyed the sun and sandy beach at West Kirby and next to the sandy beach was a lake.

I received no reply. In early September I asked Wirral Council again to do a review as to why this request hadn’t been responded to. Again no reply.

On Monday morning (25th November 2019) Wallasey Town Hall had a “Preparing for Retirement” course running in Committee Room 2 and in the One Stop Shop the public were explaining why they were struggling to pay their council tax.

Wirral Council’s Cabinet (which was on borrowed time and would itself cease to exist in around 6 months time) met for a somewhat brief 18 minutes in public (video of the meeting can be watched below).
