Wirral Council consult on £1.1 million scheme to change Birkenhead’s Hamilton Square

Councillor Pat Cleary (Green Party for Birkenhead and Tranmere ward) writes on his blog about a current consultation by Wirral Council proposing changes to Hamilton Square and the surrounding area.

If agreed the changes (you can view a plan of the proposals on the Wirral Green Party’s website it would mean:

  • The removal of the taxi rank outside Hamilton Square train station in Hamilton Street. The reason would be so there could be a puffin crossing outside Hamilton Square train station. This taxi rank would be relocated to two sections of Bridge Street (one for four taxis, one for five taxis).
  • A bus stop in Bridge Street would be relocated to Hamilton Street.
  • The existing bus stop outside Hamilton Square train station would be moved further down Hamilton Street.
  • The area in front of Birkenhead Town Hall which is now closed to road traffic, solely for pedestrians and protected by bollards would become part of the road and open to traffic.
  • The mini roundabout at the Hamilton Square/Hamilton Street junction (to the North-East of Birkenhead Town Hall) would be removed and replaced with a Give Way junction instead.
  • The mini roundabout at the Hamilton Square/Hamilton Street junction (to the South-West of Birkenhead Town Hall) would be removed and replaced with a Give Way junction.
  • The closure at this junction which prevents traffic going to Hamilton Square from the South-West along Hamilton Street would be removed.
  • Hinson Street (now one-way) would be made two-way between Hamilton Street and Henry Street.
  • Hamilton Street (now one-way between Hamilton Square and Conway Street) would be made two-way between Hamilton Square and Conway Street.
  • Conway Street will be closed at its junction with William Street.
  • Alterations to the traffic signals at the Bridge Street/Hamilton Street junction.

  1. I’d better declare a professional interest as I visit Birkenhead Town Hall for public meetings of the Birkenhead Constituency Committee and my wife has a Blue Badge.

    I’m concerned about the reduction in parking this will lead to outside Birkenhead Town Hall. Four disabled spaces will be lost and although the plans show 6 replacement car parking bays (far less than what will be lost), the plans don’t specify if any of these 6 replacement bays will be specifically for Blue Badge users.

    1. I have had it confirmed by the Council that the number of disabled bays will be reduced from 8 to 3. It is unclear exactly where all these will be, and whether they will be a safe distance from the buses and HGV’s using the new road

  2. G’day John

    To be a council person John do you have to be a coward that just votes as told and thumbsdown anonymously.

    What heroes.

    I just did the Australian Army were standing up and being counted counted.



  3. G’day John

    Thought I would give the local rubbish propaganda sheet a day off because they wouldn’t write this anyway.

    EXCLUSIVE: How much do bosses at YOUR council earn? Mail investigation reveals huge pay deals for the public sector fat cats – so now find out how much YOUR local authority chief takes home

    Hospital chief facing a budget crisis and probe is pocketing £1.26million

    Council executives earning up to £411,000 a year while cutting services

    Council boss in Wales charged taxpayers £2,368 a month for his Porsche

    Revelations were made after 6,000 Freedom of Information requests

    The shocking scale of fat cat pay in the public sector is exposed today by a major Daily Mail investigation.

    Following the most detailed audit of state earnings ever, we reveal how bosses milk the taxpayer for millions of pounds.

    Even those presiding over national scandals – such as child abuse and fraud – have pocketed huge salaries.

    The details came to light only through 6,000 freedom of information requests and months of painstaking research by the Mail and the TaxPayers’ Alliance.

    No wonder John they all just keep their gobs shut and protect each other.

    They are one huge national joke John taking the piss out of the taxpayer.



    Come on you cowardly thumbs downers show us what you are made of speak up.

    No wonder people are retiring and getting out.

  4. G’day John

    No wonder the thumbs downers keep their gobs shut these dullard wannabe’s.

    Come on speak up.

    Tell us how these council people are taking the mickey out of you elected buffoons.

    Tell us how you are told how to vote to keep these overpaid fat purple headed egotist thieves in their overpaid jobs whilst you think you are doing well getting curled up butties at the local gala.

    Treated like peanuts one and all.

    John did the angry little man say he was getting out before the shit really hits the fan?

    They really are a national joke.

    ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

    Some should truly be in jail.



    No wonder AdderleyDadderlyDooLally hung on for four years after Lockwood/Harbac Wirral “Funny” Bizz all aided and abetted by this shower of crud.

    How much was that worth to “The Football Shirt”?

  5. G’day John

    Looks John like Fartin Lobsterpot is starting to do his job.

    Speaking for Uncle Joe through “Phil the Very Very Deluded Dill’s” gob in his empty purple head.

    Which gets more purple every day John on your “Tarrantino” camera purpleometer.

    The rubbish paper from over Kev and Stella’s Stinking Stagnant Wirral Waters.

    A SPOKESMAN (aka Fartin Lobsterpot) for Cllr Phil Davies, who chairs the “super cabinet” of leaders across the city region, said progress had been made in the meeting.

    He said: “All six leaders attended the meeting with Lord O’Neill and the Treasury team.

    “Progress has been made on negotiations, and further discussions will now take place at councils on November 19.”

    Poor old Phil thinks he actually has a say.

    “Ankles” used to pull his strings and now Fartin Lobsterpot.



  6. G’day John

    Back to the local rubbish propaganda sheet

    Taxpayers’ group shows Wirral Council officers in the ‘Town Hall Rich List’

    Looks like they may be trying……………………………………NOT

    Typical of this rubbish they pay for

    Comments are closed on this article.

    John this lot are a disgrace to themselves their families their alma maters and the human race.



    Come on thumbs downers stand up for these scumbag pigs.

  7. G’day John

    The thumbs downers must all be busy interviewing hopeless causes like Wirral “Funny” Bizz to dish out everybody’s money with the usual lack of RIGOUR.



  8. Isn’t it an odd thing to do. You’re sat there, presumably minding your own business, flicking through the content of your laptop and browsing the John Brace blog when you spot a tiny little thumb down symbol and you feel compelled to press it.
    Not only that, you do it over and over again thus making it quite clear that you, the person who’s minding his own business has got bugger all else to do other than use one of their ten digits and press the bloody rotten thumbs down button.
    Makes you think doesn’t it! I mean, say for example the person or persons who are taking the trouble to press the button are actually sucking on the teat of public service and are actually in a position of responsibility and they’re being paid to press the bloody button. Makes you wonder why and worse, what’s going on during their thought process to think that it’s all a jolly good use of their time.
    I mean, I ain’t kidding myself. I know, beyond any doubt that as I sit here tapping upon my keyboard it’s all a complete waste of my time and yours for even bothering to read whatever it is that’s going through my mind. But, as pointless as it all is, sat here, supping on me tea, smoking me hand rolled cigarette and transmitting this drivel, at least, at the very least, a tiny little piece of my limited intelligence quotient was used to produce this tripe. Whereas the fella or fellows, idiocy and mindlessness can affect more than one person, can only offer up their very very limited best which is, to sit bloody down and press a bloody button.
    To those that press the button, up or bloody down, I couldn’t care less, I hope that God delivers you a repetitive strain injury to all of your digits, so severe and tormenting it brings on debility and you quickly become infected by rickets and head lice.

  9. G’day John

    Luv yer stuff Bobby.

    Bobby in their local rubbish propaganda sheet there was actually an article suggesting not all was well in the state of The Northern Shithouse er I mean powerhouse.

    Updated: Taxpayers’ group shows Wirral Council officers in the ‘Town Hall Rich List’

    etc etc etc

    Yet Bobby it says there were 6 comments but did not show any of them.

    They are sad,

    I also wonder Bobby about these thumbs downers.

    Can you imagine if “Phil the Very Very Deluded Dill’s”, (lots of other idiots at Wirral are available), little darling came home from school and said their house captain was taking all the kiddies play lunch money and are told to stay schtum.

    He would be down that school as quick as, as soon as he holed out in Hoylake.

    I would love to see his purple bulbous head when his kiddies headmaster said eff off it doesn’t happen in my school send an FOI and we will answer it 18 months.



  10. Good reporting John. I’ll make sure that I respond to this, I wasn’t aware of the consultation.

    I really wish people wouldn’t hijack your blog comments and go completely off on unrelated subjects. Surely comments sections are intended for people’s views on the actual article?


    1. I wasn’t aware of the consultation until Cllr Pat Cleary pointed it out to me recently on Twitter.

      I appreciate comments that are on the topic of the article as it’s good to read other people’s viewpoints.

    2. G’day Thumbs Downer.

      I hate writing about Wirral “Funny” Bizz and hijacking blogs but I will continue to do this whilst ever they insult me and “Highbrow” by not acknowledging their complete cock up and rectifying the matter.

      Then insulting our intelligence even more by ignoring the situation were they got away with about £2,000,000.00.

      Then spending over £200,000.00 probably covering up their lies.



  11. G’day John

    Thumbs downers have not been to forthcoming to defend AdderleyDadderlyDooLally so I just thought I would remind them of the slimy deceitful actions of the most improved council in the country.

    Stop laughing John.

    Comments on Lockwood/Harbac situation by a chartered accountant of over 30 years

    Lockwood Engineering Ltd

    Though Cllr Davies says it was dissolved in September 2012 that is misleading in the context of proving that the BIG fund purposes were met.

    Begbies Traynor, liquidators were appointed in April 2011 for it takes over a year to allow all creditors to come forward.April 2011 is 11 months after the BIG grant was awarded and is the most pertinent fact, not 26 months.

    The Liquidation is a Creditors Voluntary Liquidation. That means that the directors put themselves forward because they could not pay their creditors. Cllr Davies has referred to “(not for financial reasons)” as an explanation of the phoenix of the company. I attach a copy of the Liquidators statement of 21st April 2011 showing a deficiency of £218,197.72

    (Can’t be bothered copying John)

    The above means in no uncertain terms that the company went into liquidation for financial deficiencies. It was insolvent patently at the time of the BIG application and so remained throughout until its liquidation.

    The tone of the statement or advising of Grant Thornton is that the BIG achieved its objectives. The tone is wrong because the BIG fund went to the wrong recipients rather than to the recipients that the Cabinet was advised would receive the monies. Two of six had serious solvency problems then and ongoing and it is disingenuous to write that they survived 2 years. Any accountant will tell you it is possible for companies to bluff their way through an extra year or two. The history of wirralbiz shows what can be done by sleight of hand.

    John Beverley Edwards the original auditor was all over this before she went missing in action.



    I know the thumbs downers will not understand this as it is always the excuse like “The Pretend Friend” when caught out claim not to understand accounting.

    Which organisation has Britain’s most credulous man AdderleyDadderlyDooLally retired to John with his ill-gotten loot?

    It must be mentioned “Phil the Very Very Deluded Dill” “The Shyster” and “The Pretend Friend” were all over this like a cheap suit.

    Get rid Ecca.

  12. Cut backs, the Library closed for most of the week, streetlights not working, The footpaths closed on Duke street bridge, potholes in the roads, wet leaves all over Wirral left for some old dear to slip and break her leg, gutters blocked with same leaves, litter on every street etc etc and they want to waste more tax payers money doing up an area that has become a ghost place after Wirral altered it in the first place 20 years ago, just leave it alone, and spend any money where its really needed!

  13. G’day John

    Fancy a road in front of the clown hall becoming a road for two way traffic.

    What genius invented this?

    Most improved council in the country.



    A road becomes an area and then the area becomes a road no wonder Kev and Stella’s Stinking Stagnant Wirral Waters is moving ahead so rapidly.

  14. G’day John

    Does anyone believe the tripe the leader drivels on his blog?

    Supporting the growth and development of Wirral’s economy

    One of my biggest responsibilities as Leader of Wirral Council is to support growth and development for the benefit of all in Wirral.

    Why did he let AdderleyDadderlyDooLally keep paying Wirral “Funny” Bizz eighteen months after the whistle had been blown?

    Why did he allow AdderleyDadderlyDooLally to be promoted to super director after letting Wirral “Funny” Bizz get away with about £2,000,000.00 knockoff.

    Why did he not get rid of AdderleyDadderlyDooLally sooner after his part in the Lockwood/Harbac asset stripping affair?

    Why did he allow about £250,000.00 be spent to defend the lies and shit around Wirral “Funny” Bizz, Grant Thornton, FOI’s etc.?

    Why did he still let AdderleyDadderlyDooLally Britain’s most credulous man talk shit publicly about Kev and Stella’s Stinking Stagnant Wirral Waters?

    Why did he let AdderleyDadderlyDooLally get away with about £250,000.00 after the above?

    I wouldn’t give the purple headed buffoon the responsibility of his own kids pocket money.



  15. G’day John

    The fact they will never admit anything was wrong with Big, ISUS and Working Neighbourhoods and Wirral “Funny” Bizz is still costing taxpayer money.

    They have wasted about £200,000.00 defending the indefensible.

    Another FoI I found today John, how much will this cost John I forget what you said?

    It is a very serious one and I think it needs serious consideration.

    I have seriously considered it and my response is


    From: nigel hobro

    11 November 2015

    Dear Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council,

    The Big fund

    Subsequent to receiving in September 2015 the previously hidden
    Principal auditor report from January 2012 whose 370 pages largely
    dealt with the BIG fund and where it has become clear that a report
    ought to have been made to councillors and to Begbies Traynor
    liquidators re Lockwood Engineering ltd I believe it to be fair and
    just to ask more questions.

    At the Audit and Risk committee meeting of 8th October 2014 claims
    were made both by Mr Burgess and by Mr Adderley that the number of
    recipients of the BIG fund who had gone bust were limited to
    Lockwood Engineering Ltfd and its successor , Harbac ltd, and to
    Atlantic Engineering Ltd. This was for them a knock-out argument
    justifying the fund and they attached words like “not bad for a
    fund in a recession”. Public statements by senior officials such as
    these two can have a strong effect on public perception so it is
    important for the record that such statements are correct.

    However scrutiny of the January 2012 report where the names of
    further Limited company recipients were not redacted out yielded
    the truth that the above statements were not true at all. for

    TTH laundry Services ltd whose grant was approved on 25/08/2010 was
    liquidated on 18 August 2014

    Brocks Mechanical Services Ltd considered in meeting of 25 August
    2010 went into iquidation on 08 November 2011

    WBC left a further 6 company names unredacted-quite rightly as no
    obligation exists under section 40 of the FOI act to protect Ltd
    company names .

    Given the above contradiction of statements made by senior
    officials to a scrutiny committee I ask for

    !. the names of all limited company recipients of the BIG fund

    the dates the panels awarded the grants
    the dates councillors signed and authorised the above grants

    All the above is occasioned by the need to set the record straight
    and is in the context of a degree of obfuscation that has
    previously obtained

    Yours faithfully,

    nigel hobro



    If people only new John what was happening to their monies.

  16. G’day John

    I think “Phil the Very Very Deluded Dill” should pay homage to my thumbs downers on your site on his blog.

    Tell them how he has lived with the lies of Big ISUS and Working Neighbourhoods for 1,591 days, 4 Years 4months and 7 weeks since I blew the whistle to AdderleyDadderlyDooLally and his little “Chamber Potty”.

    He must dread the day when someone, god knows who, will come and say “Dill” you’ve been pickled.

    I would like to think he he he it would be Pickles ha ha ha or Hodge or whatever that other non-event dude at the DCLG is called.

    Get your mates and co-conspirators “The Shyster” “The Angry Little Man” “Ecca” “Ankles” “The Pretend Friend” and all the other clowncillors and senior officers like “Humpty Dumpty that new of Lockwood/Harbac and Wirral “Funny” Bizz and go for a long walk on a short pier on Kev and Stella’s Stinking Stagnant Waters.

    You and your lot are not fit to serve the public if you can’t fess up to the whole Wirral “Funny” Bizz thing.



    Liars liars pants on fire

    Do you think John the thumbs downers are really stupid enough to read me?

    If they do it is no wonder they are in “The Dill” and “Ankles” gang of
    S T U P I D.

    Is Ecca still hiding under his desk John?

  17. G’day John

    I don’t know John why Ecca doesn’t just sort out to everyone’s satisfaction the whole Wirral “Funny” Bizz, Big, ISUS and Working Neighbourhoods four and a half years farce.

    Is the man of no substance like “Phil the Very Very Deluded Dill”?

    I want to retire from this cause Ecca.

    Word on the street is that the Official Receiver is now on the case and is speaking of the seriousness of the situation.

    C’mon Ecca sort it or move on.

    As much as I get an enormous laugh out of watching “The Shyster” in court mumbling and with his cheap plastic biro and expensive barrista just sort it and you will forever be known as “Him who did the right thing”.



    “Dill” you best go see Fartin Lobsterpot on the way home this will take some spin.

  18. G’day John

    A quick lesson to Ecca “Phil the Very Very Deluded Dill” “The Shyster” “He who can talk….” other assorted senior officers and 66 councillors.

    Asset stripping

    What is asset stripping?

    Asset stripping is taking company funds or assets of value while leaving behind the debts.

    Company directors transfer only the assets of one company to another and not the liabilities. The result is a dormant company with large liabilities that cannot be met and it has to be put into liquidation

    Stripping of company assets is normally done for two main reasons:

    The fraudsters deliberately target a company or companies to take ownership, move the assets and then put the stripped entity into liquidation
    “Phoenixing” – directors move assets from one limited company to another to ‘secure’ the benefits of their business and avoid the liabilities. Most or all the directors will usually be the same in both companies. This usually arises as a way of ‘rescuing’ the assets of a failing business rather than targeting a company.

    Who will be implicated John?

    And poor old “Phil the Very Very Deluded Dill” thought AdderleyDadderlyDooLally was talking about the clubs they went to in Reno and Shanghai.

    Ignorance is no excuse “Dill”.



  19. G’day John

    Who do you think read that report?

    The Big Fund

    Subsequent to receiving in September 2015 the previously hidden
    Principal auditor report from January 2012 whose 370 pages largely
    dealt with the BIG fund and where it has become clear that a report
    ought to have been made to councillors and to Begbies Traynor
    liquidators re Lockwood Engineering ltd I believe it to be fair and
    just to ask more questions.

    So John what do ya reckon

    AdderleyDadderlyDooLally, Garry, Lambert, Burgess, “Phil the Very Very Deluded Dill”, “The Pretend Friend”, “He who can talk for twenty minutes without breathing or saying anything”, Norman, Wilkie, “The Shyster”?

    In over 3 years John lots of other people like Grant Thornton and DCLG yet not one body has been punished………..amazeBALLs.

    Oh that reminds me “Humpty Dumpty” as well

    They just have their own law John


    Each and every one of them.



  20. G’day John

    If you see Ecca today John on your rounds of the Wirral Council Asylum aka Fantasy Island on Kev and Stella’s Stinking Stagnant Wirral Waters or “Phil the Very Very Deluded Dill” or “The Pretend Friend for that matter you could ask them a question about this excerpt from a letter to the Official Receiver

    The Principal auditor refers to the transfer of these assets from Lockwood to Harbac uk ltd, with no reference to any payment therefore, as well as the trade and contracts of the latter. She alerts the Wirral Borough Council Monitoring officer of her suspicion of asset stripping.(page 9/372 para 4.2)

    Who is/was the Monitoring officer?

    This report John just before she went missing………..

    It seems John there was quite a bit of stripping on “Phil the Very Very Delude Dill” and AdderleyDadderlyDooLally’s watch monitored by ??????????



    I presume the Fudge It and Risk It Mis-Management Committee was all over Lockwood/Harbac like a cheap suit on “Ankles”, probably the main topic on the “Crapapple” Booze Bus. They probably thought it was new club in New Brighton at “Crisp Packets” Community Centre with business plans to burn.

  21. G’day everyone listening (that’ll be no-one then)

    Blah blah, rant rant, here’s drunken incoherent meanderings about some funny business only I care about and let’s go off beam completely from whatever story is being published….

    I’m starting early on the juice today John, spending your readers hard earned on more of the mothers ruin. 4 long years I’ve been ripping you all off, you great galahs and I get to moan about an injustice too!!! Long live the welfare state!!! You don’t get a bulbous red nose like mine doing a proper job you know John – just ask Alex Ferguson!!!

    Might even throw another FOI on the barbie later today John – let’s cost the tax payer some more money chasing gold coast sandcastles in the sky!! Hohoho I’m so frickin’ clever like my old pal, Nidge the brain surgeon.

    Bye for now John you cheeky little chimp – I’m off to Alfs store to buy myself another bottle of white lightning so I can get even more juiced up and come back on later and annoy your readers just a little more!!!!



    Ps I wonder if the real James will like being parodied – probably not. Let’s wait for the inevitable indignant response.

    Take care John – sorry for the hijack but I felt it appropriate to highlight the ridiculousness of some posts going on here from the real Mr Griffiths

    1. G’day John

      Why does he pick on “Highbrow” John I don’t think he has insulted anyone just their illegal and immoral actions.

      Obviously someone with issues.

      I was born and cared about the Wirral unlike Jimbobs.

      Never sent an FOI Jimbobs that just gives “The Shyster” something else in the pile of sins to hide from the public.

      That third thumbs up was from me Jimbobs I think you are my kind of guy/gal?

      Keep up the great work Jimbobs.

      I think my fan club is growing John.

      I laugh a lot at what Bobby writes but I laugh even more at you Jimbobs.

      How can you bow and nod for “Phil the Very Very Deluded Dill” “Ankles” “The Pretend Friend” et al.

      What have they done for the Wirral?

      Wirralgate Wirralgate Wirralgate



      I can’t believe John that anyone reads me…Jimbobs seems to know me better than I know myself.

      Write again soon Jimbobs X

  22. G’day John

    Which liar, cheat, obfuscator, criminal do you think Jimbobs was John?

    Hope he writes again I luv his style I wonder what Bobby thinks?



    They still haven’t fessed up John I presume DCLG etc will sort it all out with devolution or in Wirral’s case DEVILution.

  23. G’day John

    Full of cheap cider and so thankful Jimbobs put me in my place.



    They deserve so much respect, cream of society…..ask the Official Receiver.

  24. G’day John and Jimbobs

    Another day and history hasn’t changed anything.

    Fess up and it might be a start.

    Do you honestly think central government will give you control of any dosh?

    A Mayor from Wirral?

    Most improved council in the country…not till you fess up.




    James X

  25. Thoughts and prayers for the victims and families of the horrific events in Paris

  26. G’day John


    Hope Jimbobs writes again today John I think he is hilarious.

    It will remind me to write to you and mention Wirral “Funny” Bizz and them being allowed to knock off hundreds and hundreds of thousands of pounds and when “The Football Shirt”, “The Chamber Potty” and “The Garbage Lady” were told they did the “right thing” and kept paying them for eighteen months.

    It is ok though Britain’s most credulous man said that it wasn’t our money anyway at Gra Gra’s farce of a public meeting into Big, ISUS and Working Neighbourhoods of 8 October 2014.

    Remember that night John when Gra Gra himself with his twenty nine mistakes in seven seconds, “The Football Shirt” and their little mate “Humpty Dumpty” stood there lying and him waving a signed contract with a gay flourish EUREKA one signed.

    That kind of generosity deserves special mention.

    It enabled them to get new gnashers and go to Portugal….so kind.

    I think they will be getting jobs with a certain “Sir” any day soon when “Sir” realises who he is dealing with.



    1. James my dear friend. The ‘thumbs down’? Rather than be bothered my friend, take heart from it. My conclusion is that your missives are the reason you are getting this reaction. There are, as far as I can tell, at least half a dozen who’d like you to shut up. These same people want you to shut up because they don’t want the past to be revisited by some open and transparent forensic analysis which, as you know will cast a long dark cloud of a shadow over events that one day will be illuminated by a criminal nvestigations.
      Rather than be disappointed James, rub your hands and tell yourself, ‘I’ll be damned if I stop’. Keep going lad!

      1. bobby you are right . If James has been draining the state of £58 per week plus his rent then wonder why a huge tranche of our rate-payers cash is paid monthly in enormous sums to some-I say m- ex Town Hall employees who do not appear to have made any positive difference to out , the rate-payers’ lives.
        Surely Mr adderley’s £20,000 pension money per year (10 years) of service is like a tsunami compared to Mr Griffith’s £3,500 pa plus rent; the difference between their contribution does not seem to merit such a gulf in reward. Mr Griffiths cannot work because of his honesty .He never introduced Stella Shiu to Wirral , nor did he attempt to cover up an abysmal waste of regeneration money.In covering it up Mr adderley appears to have brought further expense in its train not least to ERDF and of course all the pseudo investigative costs of WBC.

        Seems to meMr Griffiths is relatively innocuous!!

        1. “Mr Griffiths cannot work because of his honesty”

          Nope, Mr. Griffiths cannot work because he spends too much of his time on the internet hijacking local blogs and spouting utter garbage that only he and his pseudo-intellectual mate understand or care about.

            1. Brilliant.

              just for clarity though, I certainly don’t consider Hereford’s finest to be intellectual, pseudo or otherwise.

                1. G’day John, AnonyMouse and Bobsicle,

                  Fairly irrelevant Aussie here

                  I’m sorry I’m late to the debate, the lunchtime grog surely knocked me off my feet!!! I ran out of cheap cider at 11am and I had to drink some aftershave samples I was given in Debenhams in 1998. Strewth that Brut is fairdinkum party juice!! I slept like a baby until 15 minutes ago and I wake up to find all my favourite people on here having a party without me!!!

                  Nice to hear from you again Anony – but I’m not liking the way your are having a go at me old mate the Hereford Hero! He needs a bit more respect for the ditties he puts on here!

                  I can’t believe that dirty stinking rag from over the water today John, they only had a horoscope you couldn’t make up!! It said ‘career prospects will strike when least expect’. Haha like I actually work John, can you believe that?! Bloody deluded fools with all their pie in the sky talk of me being in work!!!!! Russell bloody Grant, more like Bobby bleeding Grant writing that propaganda!!

                  It’s windy tonight John, I’m hoping it dies down for tomorrow. I’ve got to go out for some more samples of that Brut, the old taste buds are going mad here. Saves me brushing my tooth too!!!!

                  Laters thumbs downers – how about some thumbs up??????



                  Ps I do hope Anony writes more, his humour tickles me this pink angry colour

                  Thanks for your support Bobsicle – you’re a diamond, a prize prince amongst the brave keyboard warriors

                  1. Thanks for taking the time Jimbobs

                    But do you know nothing has changed in the history of Wirral “Funny” Bizz, Big ISUS and Working Neighbourhoods or Lockwood/Harbac in the time it took you.

                    The asset stripping did happen ask the Official Receiver.

                    I do hope AdderleyDadderlyDooLally can find a job he probably didn’t think he lied John’s camera “Tarrantino” was probably lying.



                    I do luv a brut.

  27. Thanks Bobster

    Your right as always my man and I thank you.

    Another dirty trick yesterday like April 2013 but it didn’t work for poor old Jimbobs.

    I do hope he stays in touch.

    He is nearly as funny as your dirty underdacks.

    Bobby I have been at this for four and a half years so why would I stop now?

    About £2,000,000.00 knocked off or wasted by them defending the knockoff we know why Bobsley so why didn’t HE just say “got me lads”?

    Then to get all the senior officers and councillors to go four years plus living the lies and obfuscations, and heaven forbid maybe crimes?

    No sincere thanks or apologies.

    Sorry John didn’t mean to ignore you please stay up em I think there is a Fudge It and Risk It Mis-Management Committee meeting coming up that we could go to for old times sake, or, maybe just greet “Crapapple’s Booze Bus” full of the labor elite down the pub afterwards.

    Do they deliver leaflets on the way???????



    As Jimbobs says long live the welfare state and he should know better than me.

    C’mon thumbs downers I am up early looking for work as usual but I want to get to 30 THUMBS DOWN this week tell your FRIEND but tell them not to read me my humour is crap.

    They should though read Bobby and Jimbobs.

  28. G’day John

    It seems like the thumbs downers have spat their dummies John and Jimbobs has the stamina of the maestro at Wirral “Funny” Bizz.

    I do hope though they are all asking who on Wirral would walk away from a £100,000.00 plus job and why?



    C’mon I want 30 thumbs down.

  29. G’day John

    Is Ecca going to do some more cleaning out of the dross and slurry at Clowncillor Crispy Creme Doughnuts meeting tonight John?

    Wirral can only hope.



  30. G’day John

    If Ecca wanted to line them all up “Phil the Very Very Deluded Dill” “Ankles” AdderleyDadderlyDooLally “The Pretend Friend” and “The Shyster” etc and plead insanity over the Wirral “Funny” Bizz fiasco.

    I would probably consider vouching for them after the latest hair brain scheme in their local rubbish propaganda sheet

    Wirral councillors to hold talks on devolution deal – with plans to build UK’s first ‘tidal lagoon’ off Merseyside coast

    Who makes this crap up John.

    Britain’s most Credulous Clowncil.



    Will this garbage reach the rubbish paper from over Kev and Stella’s Stinking Stagnant Wirral Waters.

    Maybe Wirral Waters can be the focal point for the pedalos, hovercrafts and jet skies and other fortune earning schemes.

    I can see “The Raving Loony” being lagoon master from his house on the Dee out of harm’s way.

  31. G’day John

    Let me take the time to thank you again publicly for leaving my posts up even though they are ridiculous.

    I promise as soon as the whole wirral “Funny” Bizz saga is over to everyone’s satisfaction I will never write trash on your site again.

    I still can’t believe anyone reads, or in Jimbob’s case studies, the gob rot I put up in the cause of us whistleblowers.

    There must be some very guilty consciences out there John



    Keep well and keep up the great work.

  32. G’day John

    Just thinking back over the past four and a half years John.

    The highlights I feel today, it does change quite often John, is “The Pretend Friends” and his lying and deceitful ways.

    I do hope I am not like that at his age.

    His quotes over the time

    “Due process boyo”

    “You’ve won boyo”

    “Due process boyo”

    “You can’t pick the eyes out of a corpse boyo”

    You’ve won boyo”

    You can’t pick the teeth out of a corpse boyo”

    “You’ve won boyo”

    What does he do to his enemies John “Highbrow” had great respect for him.



    If this is his idea of due process to spend about £200,000.00 to defend lies, cheating and obfuscations he is another one that should be de-selected.

    Wirral “Funny” Bizz Wirralgate Wirral “Funny” Bizz

  33. G’day John

    Devilution has started John.

    The first of “Phil the Very Very Deluded Dill’s” fantasies has gone the way of AdderleyDadderlyDooLally by the looks of it.

    In their local rubbish propaganda sheet

    Merseyside Fire Service urged to ‘think again’ on plans for new station in Saughall Massie

    What next,

    Crazy golf?

    Kev and Stella’s Stinking Stagnant Waters?

    The new turdal surfing lagoon?

    “Phil the Very Very Deluded Dill’s” Grand Dunny Chain Wearing?

    or, maybe his knighthood.



    Fess up “Dill” on Wirral “Funny” Bizz and Wirralgate and face your demons else the demons of Devilution might get you.

    1. I’m fine.

      Perhaps I’d better explain.

      In the last fortnight this blog has switched from being hosted in America to hosted in the UK.

      As it was started in 2010 (well before the johnbrace.com domain was registered) there has been considerable unseen work by myself behind the scenes to ensure over five years of comments and posts are transferred.

      However files, such as photos, which may be used in more than one place have to be done manually and the web addresses changed to the new place.

      The fact no one has noticed (until you now) that anything is amiss is testament to me not screwing the whole project up.

      However that is why I have been quiet comment and post wise recently, I’ve just been busy with the above (plus filming public meetings and uploading the footage). So no haven’t been ill, just busy.

  34. G’day John

    Nice to see you are moving into the future John unlike the clowncil who are about to go backwards on their ridiculous, stupid and cruel decisions and AdderleyDadderlyDooLally schemes such as fire stations, crazy golf courses and turdal power schemes etc and hopefully Lyndale.

    Jimbobs is doing a great job keeping us all entertained but if he doesn’t start getting his fat derriere out of bed a bit earlier to get us roused stories like the fall and fall of “Crapapples will take front page.



    Keep up the fabulous work John and Bobby.

    I had noticed also John I wanted to get to 30 thumbs down from my ever increasing adoring public and I am still concerned about Reprahnehpets aka Stephen Harper.

  35. G’day John

    Lets hope now that people like, is his name Clark, can now force them (or should I say threaten them with a reduction of monies) into fessing up over Wirral “Funny” Bizz, Wirralgate etc.

    I am sure the federal lot don’t want to deal with cheats, liars and obfuscators who have gotten too big for their boots in Wirral.

    Well I hope they don’t.

    It can all be cleaned up quite easily John just a few more deselections and retirements and I and others can go away.

    People like Jimbobs can stop playing the man and we can all play the ball together.



    Well done Ecca if you are as I think, hope and pray are on the right side of decent.
