Cllr Chris Meaden (on the left of the picture above) who is a councillor for Rock Ferry is now listed as an independent on Wirral Council’s website (previously elected as a Labour councillor). She is also one of the four councillors from Wirral Council appointed to Merseyside Fire and Rescue Authority.

This follows her fellow Rock Ferry councillor Cllr Moira McLaughlin leaving the Labour Party last year.

Whatever the reasons for it, it puts more pressure on the remaining Labour councillors on Wirral Council over aspects of their policies which remain unpopular with the voters of Wirral. Labour now have 34 out of the 66 seats on Wirral Council (plus two more who are elected as joint Labour & Co-operative Party councillors), if any more Labour councillors left it would put them at risk of losing their majority.

All twenty-two wards on the Wirral elect a councillor this May. There is growing discontent amongst the voters over increased council tax, public transport, greenbelt issues and many other issues too.

There is also the ongoing albatross for the Labour Group which is the Hoylake Golf Resort, which is due to be discussed again in less than a fortnight.

  1. They’re dropping like flies John.
    I’ll stock up on the insecticide for when hard right Labour parasites come knocking on our doors as May approaches.

    • It’s going to make for an interesting 3 months though as each party tries to persuade the voters why they should vote for them though!

  2. How many times do I have to tell Paul! When these Candidates tip up at your abode begging you for your vote, and they will, they always do, to test their honesty you simply ask them one simple question. ‘Do you masturbate?’.

    The honest Candidate will say, ‘I most certainly do’. He’s the fella you vote for. Mind, if that Candidate adds more to his response by saying, ‘at least a dozen times a day’, and he then asks to pop in and do it again in your front room, you tell him he’s sick, in need of help and slam the door in his face.

    I hope this helps both you and John during your deliberations on which narcissistic idiot you vote for during your forthcoming elections.
