9 Number nine was a video clip of a public meeting of the Birkenhead Constituency Committee filmed on the 1st March 2018 at the Wirral Deen Centre.

I published a short piece about what the public meeting was about (including copies of the questions) headlined What happened at the Birkenhead Constituency Committee public meeting held at the Wirral Deen Centre on the 1st March 2018?

2 The second most watched clip in 2018 was this clip of a public meeting of Liverpool City Council on 19th September 2018. The reason for the high number of views is that it was widely shared on social media due to a speech by Mayor Joe Anderson on the Trans Community Motion following public speakers for and against the motion.

2018 was also the year that Wirral Council started filming around half their public meetings themselves starting on the 14th May 2018.

So I wonder what will happen on these issues in 2019?
