Just listened to the Jeremy Vine prog.
The gentleman was saying that it helps promote Wirral !! I would assume it would come out of the Leisure and Tourism budget. Why should Wirral Council need promoting. If it helps to promote Wirral as an area, then the Tourism Office did that very well for many years until in 2007 when it was closed. There had to be cuts in the department which resulted in the loss of jobs. I'm quite sure the salaries didn't amount to anything like £125,000.per annum. So if there had to be severe cuts, why did this sponsorship of Tranmere Rovers continue anyway?
Keep your eyes peeled for the Golf and the expenses surrounding that little affair again.Did the last championship put Wirral on the map in 2006 and bring business? Don't think so, but Hoylake got a nice roundabout and so did Arrowe Park! Which incidentaly, on th busiest morning of the 'week'(Friday) during the Golf Championshipst, the new taffic lights failed and one policeman was directing with queues going back beyond junction 4 on the motorway. Great!
...and those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.FN
