Not a chance, they at Merseytravel really should know better than wasting taxpayers money to take on personal grievences.
I wrote one of the articles that has caused offence to Merseytravel.
The truth often hurts, especially those with the biggest ego's. but FAIR COMMENT IS ALWAYS JUSTIFIED especially when unelected officials are in charge of so much money.
Merseytravel the company that commissioned the Building Design, (The Architects Weekly), 2009 Carbuncle Cup Winner, (that a collegue of ours nominated). The Terminal Ferry Carbuncle.
Are they out of control with a public art programme, that give us Ken Dodd with a kebab at Lime Street Station, wasting a fortune building a worthless piece of (s)crap.
Ken Dodd did once say you have to be a comedian to live here. Well I dont think its funny anymore watching uneducated people commissioning public realm that is no more than civic vandalism. (THIS IS FAIR COMMENT) http://liverpoolpreservationtrust.blogspot.com/2009/07/liverpool-european-capital-ofbad.html
The company that claims South Parkway as a station with world class destinations when the London trains can't stop there, and anyone getting off the adjacent Liverpool Airport has to get a bus into town and then get on a train that goes right past it because the platform isn't long enough for the trains to stop after it had £30,000,000 spent on it. Since when is Crewe a world class destination.
Where did all the money go. ( THIS IS FAIR COMMENT)
Mike Kiddy(?) the Miserytravel PR, may think he is doing a good job Kidding us, hiding these facts from the public. http://liverpoolpreservationtrust.blogspot.com/2011/02/liverpool-south-parkway-station.html
They cant get away with claiming they had to cut up the U-534 to save space and any idiot that knows Pythagoras's theorem, will understand that if you cut something up it takes more space. http://liverpoolpreservationtrust.blogspot.com/2010/06/u-534-cut-up-into-five-pieces-by-neil.html
But they cant kid us Mr Kiddy.
Without even delving into the Trams fiasco, oh alright then just a bit, Miserytravel have wasted 70 million pounds of public funds and are still getting away with it http://www.liverpoolcultureblog.co.uk/2009/07/merseytram-off-the-rails-for-good/
Why were they promoting a line to Kirkby? Is it to help Liverpools Visions boss Sir Terry Leahy and at the time, and his Tesco empire expansion? Are they kidding us? Was it to make friends and influence people so their head honchos can move in circles that benefit them.
We are now about to delve into all these questions.

Miserytravel incompetent clowns IT LOOKS LIKE FAIR COMMENT TO ME.
I dont think they at Miserytravel are in fact aware of what will ensue.
Are October Communications, now Aurora Media employed by Merseytravel?
A message to you all at Miserytravel...........You are not gagging any of us of FAIR COMMENT.
In fact quite the opposite we a the LPT will be making some further FOI act requests to you at Miserytravel and we believe they will show results that may be even more revealing than what we have already written.
REALLY YOU ARE NOT GOING TO GAG US. You are accountable.
