Peel are to have the plans for Wirral Waters rubber stamped this week.
Liverpool's City Council have, forever been partners with Peel Holdings in amongst other things, the development of the Liverpool John Lennon Airport in Speke ...Above us only pollution.
It is granted that this brings a lot of tourists in to Liverpool... and just as many out.
What is alarming again is the failure of the so called local press to put two related stories together, along with the new tram spin http://www.liverpooldailypost.co.uk/liverpool-news/regional-news/2009/08/03/tram-link-bid-for-liverpool-airport-92534-24300789/ and stir up debate about the recessional effect that a lot of us have witnessed before in Liverpool, instead of how wonderful Peel are. http://www.liverpooldailypost.co.uk/liverpool-news/regional-news/2009/08/03/population-of-liverpool-may-stagnate-due-to-council-s-budget-black-hole-92534-24300791/ The sums just don't add up. You cant go on binge building without, at some time waking up with a massive hangover. PEEL ARE THE NEW DAWN WE ARE BEING TOLD by the papers YET THEY HAVE BY-PASSED LIVERPOOL'S PORT. (Oh, and the local papers have sent a load of printing jobs to Oldham). Now they, Peel are developing the Wirral, in direct competition to their promised plans for Liverpool. They promised us a new port facility. until Salford plans were passed and then scrapped the plans. http://www.liverpooldailypost.co.uk/ldpbusiness/business-local/2009/07/29/peel-s-100m-port-plan-halted-by-recession-92534-24262362/ We have had all the hot air from Mark Thommo and his Business editors Gleeson and McDonut at the Daily Ghost but when are they REALLY going to start looking into the need to create real jobs not dippy here today gone tommorrow, shop jobs http://www.liverpooldailypost.co.uk/liverpool-news/regional-news/2009/07/31/liverpool-among-worst-cities-for-empty-shops-92534-24282569/that rely on people pigging out on retail therapy. We need engineering and industrial jobs that last. So we can train apprentices and compete for the future. http://liverpoolpreservationtrust.blogspot.com/2009/07/is-daily-post-and-echo-mouthpiece-for.html YOU CANT CREATE JOBS WHEN YOUR PORT IS BEING CIRCUMNAVIGATED.
WHEN, and why DO THE LOCAL PRESS IN THEIR VAIN ATTEMPTS TO UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY ARE WRITING ABOUT EXASPERATE THE TRUE SITUATION? It is not what they do tell, its what they don't that bothers me.
I will leave it to Mr Correspondent to do a little bit of explaining about the retail situation just as we have flooded the market with Grosvenor-pool.
Dispatches from Dystopia - You do insist on sending us news about our former domicile. But where else would you go for solace from the dark foreboding place we know as the Wirral pen...
