Liverpool's woes

 The arrest of Liverpool Mayor, Joe Anderson for alleged corruption and intimidation of witnesses and his subsequent stepping down from his duties highlights the fact that the City's problems with a Labour council persist.

Ten years ago this blog highlighted the adverse effects the Unions have had on Liverpool's development.


I will not repeat my observations here but merely say, with heavy heart, part of my family came from the City, that the electorate of Liverpool are acting like the metaphorical turkeys voting for Christmas, consistently voting in the people who hate capitalism and the forces to project the City forward.. That some of the Council functions are to be taken over by Central Government must be a step in the right direction but they will be pressured by a left wing, Union driven, resistance borne of a century of having their own way.
