Neil Scales and Merseytravel Spend £67,000,000 Of Your Money-Who Sanctioned This?

N eel Scales is shown walking around talking about his new plaything, the vandalised U534 U-Boat and when asked "And How Does this fit into Mersey Ferries"? he declares
"It is a concious decision" he goes on.................
"Investing in all 3 vessels the Pier Head New Ferry Terminal and SpacePort all together cost £67,000,000".
He says "Spaceport half a day, Beatles museum 2 hours and this (U534, cut up ) with the resturaunt attached 2 hours so you have a full day............So the whole purpose of this is to increase patronage of Merseyferries"  
A day out costs us £67,000,000 while care homes are closing on both Mersey sides, somehow it does not seem sensible.

Miserytravel............Out of Control why don't they just concentrate on getting the buses and trains to run on time.
£67,000,000 of your money spent on misaligned strategies that need to be questioned.
£4.2 million to cut up U534......did they own it.........or was it held in trust.
All this wastage when the Manxman is being scuppered,
 http://liverpoolpreservationtrust.blogspot.com/2010/08/ss-manxman-do-you-care.html and will soon be scrapped, if it has not been done so already.

The Whimbrel fund cant get the cash to bring an intact ship home, to the Battle of the Atlantic Port. http://liverpoolpreservationtrust.blogspot.com/2010/12/hms-whimbral-what-ever-happened-to.html

£17,000 would have saved the MV Wincham being cut up by morons, who-ever was to blame they should have been scrapped http://liverpoolpreservationtrust.blogspot.com/2009/04/wincham-scrapped.html
Where is our sense of history http://liverpoolpreservationtrust.blogspot.com/2009/05/mv-wincham-and-museum-director-in.html How much more can we lose with badly thought through ideas from people who I would not let steer a pram never mind a heritage based organisation.

The Daniel Adamson Trust would love some money so the hard working volunteers can restore it.

And down the road, at Ellsmere Boat Museum, the forgotton home of numerous decaying ships, where they cant even raise a whip round for a box of teabags.
Wouldn't it have been common sense to make them a donation of U534 with a million quid to train apprentices..................no thats common sense. Miserytravel and its Director or should I say U-Boat Disector, Out of Control.


  1. I particularly liked the part on the second video clip where Mr Scales is describing the Enigma machine. Is he going to fit these on all the buses ?

    I suppose the real enigma is why Merseytravel have become a museum/tourist board. What's next in the Scales empire building ? And will the public have to pay yet again for his hobbies ?
