    I have no idea what is supposedly going on in Liverpool..but it is deeply reassuring to know that the issue is being dealt with by the unflinchingly incorruptible Robert Jenrick.:rolleyes:

    I expect he will sell of the town hall to a mate to turn into luxury flats.

    My youthful ventures into politics and experience there make me convinced the whole thing is corrupt top to bottom. The worst of what is being reported about Liverpool is probably true, but little, no, or even less worse than any other council including the Tory shires. They're all crooks. I won't name names as they are also incredibly wealthy and litigious crooks and I neither want to put myself through all that again, nor have to prevail upon friends and relatives in the legal profession to give me advice I cannot afford to pay for. But one good example was a council leader, who had taken incentives for encouraging favourable planning outcomes, and whose colleagues including Party Chairman were given proof of this was exonerated by procedures overseen by his Party colleagues. Said Council Leader subsequently got an OBE, retired with a pension that would allow him to buy my house every year, and now works as a consultant to property developers, no doubt facilitating similar dealings with his anointed successor who remains in his former post to this day! :oops::rolleyes:

    I don`t really see Jenrick in the Cary Grant role though.

    So it matters not how corrupt a Labour council is as the Tories are seen as more corrupt.

    I don't know which is more worrying the facts themselves or the 'impartial' nature of off topic PFM.

    If there is one thing that will both substantially piss off and unify Liverpool’s vast left-wing vote it is parachuting something as absurd and tainted as Robert Jenrick in to Torysplain the processes of democratic representation. This will not end well.

    I see that this was announced on the day that 'Concrete' Joe had all his bail conditions revoked, still no charges of criminality levelled at anyone, even Derek Hatton.
    I put most of it down to a regenerate at all costs mind set and Joe was carried along with it. It did not help that Chinese gangsters got in on the act and sold lots of stuff "Off Plan". There are quite a few building projects stalled in the city right now due to all these factors coming together.

    Perhaps Jenrick will be Boris’s first human sacrifice. He’s obviously loathed by his Cabinet colleagues who were furiously briefing against him for breaking lockdown regulations last year, though strangely unperturbed when he was caught red handed helping rubber-faced Porn Baron, Richard Desmond to trouser £40m in unpaid taxes from a property development he unlawfully waved through as a Minister.

    Dirty business on the Isle of Dogs,

    Im surprised it's taken this long tbh. I don't know a single scouser who hasn't long believed the entire redevelopment of the city has been as corrupt as a corrupt thing.

    Anyone who thinks Jenrick isn’t as bent as a nine bob note has either had their head in the sand for the last 18 months or is a blinkered Tory fan boi.

    I think that if you read my OP again.. you might understand that I very clearly did not dismiss potential problems in Liverpool, but merely pointed to the absurdity of employing a known crook such as Jenrick to sort it out. But then I suppose Johnson would struggle to find any Tory minister who isn't also a crook. It's practically a requirement.

    No need for any of that corruption round these parts.

    Jenrick rooting out corruption? I just want to know how they get those baby-faced complexions. I could make millions...
