Wirral’s ruling Labour Lib Dem Cabinet last night agreed to spend £28,000 on the international World Expo event in SHANGHAI, 5,719 miles away. The Council will spend £18,000 sponsoring the Liverpool City Council exhibition stand. A further £10,000 will be spent sending officers from Wirral Council to Shanghai to ‘staff’ the stand during the event. My colleague, Local Conservative candidate for the By-Election on 26th November, Steve Williams said: “One minute, they haven’t got the £30,000 needed to hang on to lollipop ladies or to reopen Linear Park, here in Moreton. The next minute, it’s bags packed and they’re off to China. You couldn’t make this up. This is more proof that New Labour has lost touch.” Difficult to argue with that. TIME FOR CHANGE!
PS the title is Chinese for ‘Labour spends £28,000 on a trip to China’
