Is it just me or did anyone else think it bizarre that the review of the number of councillors in Wirral was carried out by Wirral councillors?
In the same way that turkeys don’t vote for Christmas it comes as no surprise that this “task and finish” panel of councillors decided on the status quo.
The fact that there is something even called a “task and finish” group speaks volumes about the cosy world of officialdom. What did they used to have? “Task and leave half finished” panels?
We don’t need 66 councillors on Wirral Borough Council and the number should be chopped by at least a third. It would save more than £300,000 a year and I have no doubt that residents would rather that than have more parking charges foisted on them as now planned.
