What a fucking mess.  I hate Tories with a passion, but it's difficult to perceive how they could possibly do a worse job fronting up the city than the shower of morons that have been in charge for the last 40 odd years.

 

I'll pass your regards on to my parents.

The Lib Dems (locally) did ok? Never warmed to Warren Bradley though, thought he was weird. 

 

Plus, they had David Henshaw in charge at the council. For better or worse he didn't take any shit.

She's been bankrupted twice and only a councillor for 2 years.

She might be a lovely person but is there really nobody better to be the Labour Mayor of a major British city?

Fuck me that's scraping the barrel

It's a fucking sad state of affairs isn't it. But it needs to be remembered a lot of this is Labour's doing too. The original 3 candidates got pulled, nobody has a clue what's happening, others refusing to stand because the rug was pulled from under those candidates, so you're almost at last (wo)man standing. 

 

To be honest, I think this just plays into Yip's hands. And I'm beginning to think that's a good thing.

Liverpool is proper basket case for local politics. What's Mike Storey up to these days? 

Probably still got his missing finger tip on the pulse.

All I will say about Stephen Yip is that charity work must be more lucrative than I ever imagined. 

Should send his brother in to investigate him.

What is it about Yip you think would make him a good mayor of Liverpool?

I think they expect Yip to win so they're just putting her up to lose quietly and hope Rotherham keeps the Metro Mayor

Do you think the people of Liverpool should vote Tory. 

I think people should vote for whatever party they feel like, others should not judge them on their choices. If people want to vote tory what has it got to do with anyone else.

 

I dislike Mushrooms.

It wasn't really meant as a general question it was a question for Kurtz being about kicking out corruption that hides behind a red rosette but voting for a tory party thats riddled with it too.

It's got nothing to do with anyone else if you keep your politics private, but if it's something you openly discuss then expect to be judged on it, whichever party you vote for.

All political parties once they get into power will do what benefits them the most, it tends to be not who you trust the most but who you distrust the least.

When Liverpool One was built, Cesar Pelli designed the Chavasse Park building. But the tinpot planning department decided to tell the fella who designed the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur that his design was shit and made him cut it down to a stumpy business park design.

 

The city of Liverpool has a lot of potential but it's been held back by people who only give a shit about themselves while telling its inhabitants that everyone is constantly against us.


On a side note.

 

I actually think Chavasse Park works really well from a city development perspective. The variety Ive seen there over the years in different kind of activities and projects been both interesting and helpful.

I'm not 100% convinced he will be a good mayor, but I'm certain I don't want the alternatives. I don't see Tory or liberal as an option and I think it will be good for the city to have someone who isn't inside that labour system. He's a bloke who seems in touch with the priorities of the city, he doesn't get a free pass because of a labour rosette so he'll need to earn any 2nd term, he's run a succesful charity for many years, seems to be capable of articulating himself well and I'm in favour of his message of unity at this point - we need all city politicians to help drag this city forward. His 10 point plan we probably could have all done, but doing the fucking obvious is not something we've had from people leading the city for most of my life time. 

 

Plan to Reset Liverpool

  • A new Independent body to enforce the highest standards of behaviour and transparency across our Council.
  • Root and branch investigation into alleged corruption across all Council departments.
  • Build homes for families not speculators – make sure we’re building the rights homes for the future in the right places.
  • Harness the talent and potential of our young people to rebuild our City with a city-wide skills initiative offering quality vocational training and qualifications. 
  • Work with parents, carers, schools and universities on a city-wide “Summer School” to help kids catch up with their studies.
  • Put Liverpool ahead of the game by making AI an integral part of our children’s education – prepare now for the jobs of the future.
  • Ensure regeneration reaches every part of our city and delivers investment and opportunity to every neighbourhood.
  • Launch Team Liverpool, an army of volunteers to combat loneliness and improve our neighbourhoods.
  • Work with businesses, retailers, designers and community groups to rethink and revive the City Centre post-Covid.
  • Launch a joined-up Green Plan for Liverpool to make our City clean, safe and sustainable for future generations.

Is it true he and his wife each bought adjacent houses and knocked through to make one property?

I’d like to do that with my wife. Without knocking them through though. I’m also ambivalent as to whether they’re adjacent.

Sometimes, that’s true. Men really shouldn’t cohabit full time with women. Maybe a day or two a week at most. 

For 20 minutes at a time.
