Pleased?

The Audit Commission has today published its its Organisational Assessment for the Council, and the Area Assessment for Councils across the Country.    Wirral is performing ‘adequately’ with 2 stars out of 4.   Read more by clicking HERE.      Wirral has not been awarded any Green Flags, however it has been awarded a Red Flag for its safeguarding arrangements of vulnerable adults!      Whilst most, but not all of the other Councils in the area have been awarded 3 stars out of 4, I think it is very disappointing that Wirral is only ‘Adequate’.     I am even more disappointed that according to the Daily Post, the New Labour Council Leader is pleased with the performance!      Is he really pleased that the Council is only performing ‘Adequately’ , pleased that we have no Green Flags, and pleased that we have been awarded a Red Flag?
