Are you sitting comfortably? It's the final chapter for the Storeyteller....

FASCINATING goings-on amongst the Lib Dims as the Fireman clings to power.

The Dancing Queen, Flo Clucas has been promoted to Deputy Lib Dim Leader as Bradley tries to shore-up his position in his last few weeks as Leader.

However, the price that Clucas demanded for coming to Bradley's aid was....the Storeyteller's head on a plate!

She refused to join the Fireman's Cabinet if Storey was kept on as Executive Member for Regeneration and Constant Self-Promotion.

So Bradley instantly sidelined his old mate - sugaring the bitter pill by giving him the job of being Mayor next year and with a few extra bob in his pocket (£6,000 to be precise, eds) for taking up the non-role of an Assistant Executive Member.

The Dancing Queen will show some nifty footwork if Bradley is disqualified from office and will, no doubt terribly reluctantly, quietly assume the mantle of Leaderene as the Lib Dims regroup and lick their wounds before being kicked out by the electorate in 2010.

However, at least Storey will now be able to fulfil his lifetime's ambition - dressing up in a funny costume every day and getting his picture taken.

That's if he first survives the Standards Board's blisteringly-speedy investigation which is expected to report sometime before the next Millennium (once they have counted all their pencils, made a brew and had a lie-down because of all the stress, eds).

But for the lame Storey the back benches now beckon - that's how a political career ends after 30-plus years, not with a bang, but a wimp.

What has also gone unremarked by the craven Echo is the astonishing dismissal of the Lib Dem parliamentary candidate for Wavertree, Colin Eldridge.
Bradley sacked him from the Cabinet and every other position he held after the two fell out spectacularly over the Mathew Street report.
Deep in his Municipal Buildings bunker, the Fireman also became increasingly paranoid that the lanky Eldridge - dubbed The Lurch by Sexy Rexy - was secretly plotting a come-back for Storey as Leader.So he had to go too.
The Eldridge dismissal is now likely to provoke all kinds of internal party trouble for the Fireman amongst the Lib Dims nationally, who will vainly try to spin it as 'Colin wanted to spend more time with his constituency.'
Of course, it is a huge slap in the face for Eldridge who was being wildly (correct spelling, eds) touted as the Lib Dim's best hope in Liverpool at the next General Election.
No doubt scores will be settled in the future.
Meanwhile the Fireman has carried on where he left off before Nadia Stewart threw him a lifeline - demonstrating his woeful lack of integrity, intelligence or judgement by giving the accused fireman Steve Hurst the job of Executive Member for Corporate Performance.

Hurst is in court in July accused of breaking election law.

What a performance!

Well well well, what can one say to this never ending story of Bradley and his paranoia.
He creates these problems himself, he simply has never been up to the job.
Now instead of having storey pulling the strings he's got twinkle toes doing the irish jig all over him.
Clucas is not just the deputy, she is the permanent deputy! does that mean we cannot get rid of her ever?

Henshaw will be so proud of her.

As you suggest, once Storey puts his stupid costume on and shows himself as the true Puppet, Bradley will get his mum to try and bully the standards board, once this makes no difference as no-one actually works there, Bradley will either go on making a mess as usual and lying about everything including lying about lying.
Or Clucas will send one of her chins to whip him into order.
Either way, the more this total idiot chops and changes his cabinet to suit his paranoia, the more disgruntled Lib dems there will be waiting to stab him in his back.

This man does not obviously know the meaning of keep your friends close and keep your enemies closer.

The Labour shadow cabinet looks so much more appealing now.

There are some really good hard working councillors in the Labour Party who have been given the recognition the deserve.

The way the ruling party are carrying on, the current shadow cabinet,(or whatever they call it), will be the ruling party cabinet in 2010.

You forgot to mention the corrupt Paul Twigger, fired by JMU for thieving. And the bonehead trio: Berni Turnip, Keith Turnip, Marilyn Field-of-Turnips. Oh, and the Tory: goose-necked, turkey-faced Ron Gould

Jesus! It's like the Muppet Show meets the Hammer House of Horrors

What truly shows the colour of the Lib Dems is that in the city's year as capital of culture they get rid of the select committee that responded and led it, culture, media and sport. granted it was ineffectual but it's about perception. if they don't give a **** about the arts fair enough, but lets try and pretend for a bit eh?

Gareth Pierce said...

Would that be THE Paul Twigger?

Recently "allowed to leave" or "let go", or FIRED as we prefer to call it, from a prominent Liverpool University for thieving?

And now appointed as Chief Whip to the LibDems, following niftily in the steps of Steve Hurst, currently being investigated for other equally unsuitable election offences by the courts?

Why change a winning formula?

There. I feel better now.
Thank you and goodnight.
