WILL THE SECRET TAPES TOPPLE BRADLEY, STOREY AND CLARK?


ASTONISHING but persistent rumours are sweeping the city about secret tapes which reveal the inside story of the campaign against Henshaw's evil cabal.
The series of tapes are rumoured to heavily incriminate current council leader Warren Bradley, (below left, on the phone interestingly enough, ed) former leader Mike Storey (centre) and the city's first citizen in 2008, Councillor Paul Clark (right)
The gang of three are all said to feature in the secret tape recordings (wow, shades of Watergate, ed) of phone conversations they made between April 2005 and September last year. Then they suddenly stop, for some reason.


The city's chattering classes have been agog in recent weeks with feverish and growing speculation about what the tapes contain - and when, and if, they will ever be made public.
But according to one informed source, the tapes allegedly provide the inside story on council leader Warren Bradley's role against Henshaw's evil cabal.
It's claimed the tapes show how Bradley was secretly involved in bringing evidence against Sir Diddy's rottweiller, Dr David McElhinney, who is still on the council's payroll.
At one point Bradley is alleged to have been taped confirming that all of the allegations on Tony Parrish's legendary liverpool evil cabal blog were true.
He then goes on to say McElhinney "should be in Walton Jail" for the crimes he has committed and the theft of millions of pounds from council taxpayers. (good for him then, ed)
But unfortunately, any publication or broadcast of the tapes would inevitably mean a full-scale investigation by the Standards Board which governs the conduct of councillors in England and Wales.
They would also raise the question of Bradley's actions as leader of the council, his relationships with senior council staff and also bring into question his personal behaviour.
The tapes would also beg the question of why he has done nothing to remove McElhinney or his accomplice, the smiling assassin, Halsall from their lucrative sinecures with the city.
Insiders believe that the tapes are potentially so explosive and so damaging they would inevitably spell the end of Bradley's short tenure as Lib Dem leader.
They would also raise questions about why Bradley sacrificed the city's best interests for a quite life at the Municipal Buildings and condoned the loss of millions of pounds in public money.
(This at a time when the council is now planning massive cuts, ed)
Observers say if the tape rumours are true, Bradley would have to resign.
A similar resignation fate could also befall Storey, whose political career would be dealt a fatal blow by a second appearance before the Standards Board.
Rumour has it that on the secret tapes he tells the full story of his battles with Henshaw and his attempts to bring McElhinney and Halsall to justice (what's so wrong with that, then? ed)
Publication would again underline Storey's helplessness and weakness as a politician and his failure to force new chief executive Colin 'Cover Up' Hilton to take any action.
Storey is also said to be remarkably indiscreet about some of his senior council colleagues on the Executive Board and Hilton, as well as giving the shocking low-down on the appointment of Culture Company chief executive Jason The Harbarrowboy (bloody hell, I can't wait for this! ed)
The role of Councillor Clark, a barrister, and a close colleague of Bradley and Storey is just as interesting.
According to one astounding rumour, Clark, who is due to be Lord Mayor in 2008, could face action from the Law Society as a result of what the tapes reveal.
At one point Clark is also rumoured to have admitted, in a damning indictment of the Lib Dem regime at the Town Hall: "We couldn't run a piss-up in a brewery."
The tapes are said to be 'absolutely lethal and political dynamite'.


We await further developments with great interest....
(Can we quickly sort out how to broadcast audio on this blog? ed)

These people don't deserve any loyalty whatsoever. They have stood by and watched the cabal get away with it all. Go for them.

I totally agree with the anonymous person who states that these people have allowed the Cabal to get away with daylight robbery of Liverpool's money and services.
Who cares what will happen to the 3 on the tape, not me that's for sure, theyt have not acted in the intrests of the electorate and lets not forget, the electorate pay thier wages. They should not be in public office as they have allowed these others to take what they want and said nothing and done nothing to prevent it.
They should be sacked along with McDog and smiler.
Hope you find out how to publish the tapes on this site I want to know more!!!

I note the question relating to whether we can sort audio out.

As it happens, pretty much - yes!

Soon as we have the audio, we can host it on a few American websites.

Then, as fortune would have it, all you need do is drop a link on your website and a headline saying 'Download the tape here'

I'm not sure if you can edit the html of the free blogger service, if so, you can embed the audio much the same as people embed the videos.

:grin:

Now all we need is sarcastic humour such as a Top 10 for the council

1 careless whisper
2 ah, shuddupa ya face
3 The impossible dream
4 Fraud lang syne

You get the drift.

i suspect that timing is of the essence here. a drip drip drip torture would inflict maximum damage.

Can we deliver the recordings to all the council tax payers of Liverpool?

i suspect that putting them anywhere public would probably initiate some excitement. it wqouold be interesting to hear bradley, storey and clark on radio city for example. that would reach a big audience, eh pat?

before everyone gets too excited, i heard one snippet of tape, obvioulsy recorded from a public phonebox but they were just chatting about favourite music, onee said he liked Gladys Knight and the pips went, so I don't know who else.

But seriously folks, if such tapes exist who taped them, where they on supplied phones and being monitored or was it the old aspidestra in the corner?

What about on the big screen outside the Tesco Metro? I reckon it could cause a scene at least as good as did the football!

im surprised that you have not said this before, but the cuts crisis is all part of the smiling assasin halsall's revenge. as you have rightfully said already he has been in charge of the council's finances for the last six years so any crisis with cuts is his responsibility. except what is going to happen to him? nothing. they cant touch him for it. this he knows. so he haS gone out of his way to manufacture this financial cock-up firstly to embarrass warren bradley, who the assassin loathes, ands then secondly once this has all sunk in, halsall will ride to the rescue with a balanced budget showing bradley how indispensable he is and how he can dig the lib dems out of a financial hole at any time. or put them in one. simple really.
