Sam’s Anomalies?

Media quotes from Samuel Currie on “linkedin” told us he was previously in the Royal Navy, Signals Store Operator, January 2013 – June 2015 (2 years 6 months). His “linkedin” has been updated  [click to read] and now we know he was undertaking “various” Royal Navy duties from April 2009 including those “signals stores duties”. Today he is quoted on the Tory website as “A former Royal Navy sailor…Having spent six years in the Royal Navy I know how important it is to have proper defences in place”. We are glad to complete his “official” public record rather than risk being falsely accused of trolling!

On 13 November 2016 Sam Currie tweeted “Just spent the last 4 hours at #southport #soupkitchen . Not the prettiest charity. No frills. Just good people helping the most vulnerable”. But as we reported a few days ago Sam was asked why he hadn’t popped in to the Skelmerdale Foodbank and he deleted an item and comments on it from his Facebook. As a West Lancashire councillor since May 2016 why would he credit “just good people helping the most vulnerable” of Southport and deny the “just as good people helping the most vulnerable” of Skelmersdale? He’s given four more hours to Southport than he’s given to Skelmersdale. Will it come as a surprise that they don’t want him?

Sam describes how he is “Of all of the candidates in West Lancashire I am the only one who voted leave in the EU referendum last year” to which wag John O’Brien replied “I’d vote for you to leave Sam. Will probably be one of the only votes you’d get”. West Lancashire voted 55.3% to 44.7% to leave. Rosie Cooper voted remain but backed the Leave Bill in Parliament, Sam doesn’t tell us if the other 3 candidates were remainers or abstainers so we are left to surmise. But as with all other elections democracy won, thank goodness!

We also add that if residents leave their wheelie bins out on the pavement they can be a hindrance and a danger for elderly, infirm, and people with sight impairments. WLBC states “Please leave your bins and/or boxes at your normal collection point by 7.00am, with the lid closed, and take them back to your property after they have been emptied”.

And it seems that many council rules state residents must put their wheelie bins out before 7am on collection day but not before 7pm the night before. They must then have it back on their property by 7pm on the day it is emptied. Heavy fines for obstruction can be imposed by magistrates.

But GE candidate Sam Currie has left his own green bin outside his home and said “I’ve finally found a use for the green bin  now I refuse to pay the unfair charge @LabourWestLancs have tried to impose on to us”. Wouldn’t it be daft to save £30 and be fined £100, charged for legal costs and a surcharge, as much as +£400?



  1. Sam Currie has posted a photograph of an easily identifiable constituents house which has a labour poster in the window on his twitter page and stated that its empty, thereby advertising the fact to every dodgy character in the neighbourhood. Its been brought to his attention, oddly the person bringing it to his attention has been blocked now from his account??

    • Hmmm…yes, I saw that picture and wondered if the police might suggest it be removed. It looks as though Sam isn’t best pleased that some people don’t like his “wish to share and agree with me” policy. He’s a bit quick to block what might turn into interesting exchanges. I would think he might be a lamb to the slaughter at an open hustings debate.
