In a spin over summer pops....

AND AN EXPLANATION FOR WHY THERE HAVE BEEN SO MANY FREE PUFFS FOR THE ARENA IN THE ECHO AND THE POST IN THE LAST FEW WEEKS....

Guess who the spin doctor for the new arena is Tony?
None other than your old friend Jon Brown, who worked so assiduously on behalf of Chas at the infamous lobbying meeting with the Harbarrowboy, way back when the evil cabal website was running rampant.
Dunno whether Brown had to formally tender for the job, or how much it was worth, but he was an obvious shoe-in being so close and friendly to Chas, I would have thought.
Makes it much easier for Chas for them both to have the same PR person, when he brings back the Pops at the arena next year.
And won't that be hunky dory for everyone then?
Lots of loverly cash...

hey Tony, guess how much Jayne Casey was paid by the Culture Company to loll about on a bed for the night?
A cool £25 grand!!!!
You will remember that Jayne, once of the pop group, Big in Japan and now of The A Foundation and the 'Independents District' and a well known extremely gobby scouser who is also a bit loopy, was one of the, ahem, 'stars of the show' when the Culture Company launched its programme for 2008 in St Georges Hall?
This was when they spent a huge amount of money, God knows exactly how much on balloons, glitter and free nosh and booze for the invited guests including a number of leading Lib Dem councillors of course who were quick to get their noses in the trough.
But it is now common knowledge in the Culture Company that they paid Ms Casey an astonishing £25 grand to turn-up and do her stuff.
She was apparently one of the self-styled 'artistes' they hired to entertain the hoi polloi during the night.
Jayne's artistic contribution to the event's festivities took place in St George's Hall's small ballroom which was got up like a bordello, all crimson satin, lace and feathers and a huge bed.
She proceeded to invite passers by to join her on th bed. Not sure how many took her up on this, however.
This was all to do with some film she was promoting, but it was completely lost on me. And it seemed to me that harbarrowboy was desperate to have the self-appointed 'independents' on board for the launch. so he probably reckoned £25 grand was cheap to make sure Jayne didn't go all gobby over culture and have a go. not that jayne could be bought off by anyone, oh no. hope this isn't too libellous for you Tone, but i thought people should know who and what their public money is being spent on when the council are making 50 million quids worth of cuts in services. No doubt even more money has been equally well spent...
