New Year Awards Are Scarce In West Lancashire

It seems that nobody from West Lancashire was worthy of a New Year honour, when surely there were candidates who should have been considered? We found three, and to acknowledge their service we have given them the local MBE, also known as the “My Best Effort” award.

First is Wally Westley.  In 2017 he lost the nomination for the LCC West Lancashire East seat to Paul Greenall, so instead, in May, he fought for the LCC Ormskirk seat, and was soundly beaten by Cllr Hennessy. His disastrous leadership of the local Tory party is regarded as a gift to the local Labour party.

Then we have Sam Currie.  In 2017 he came from nowhere to be nominated as the Tory Parliamentary candidate and remains nowhere as he gave Rosie Cooper her biggest ever majority in four general elections.

And who could ignore Paul Moon?  In 2017 he continued his twin council seating arrangement with, for the last six months, an attendance record at WLBC meetings of just 33% while on full council allowance.

I am a pensioner. I was a strong supporter of the rights of elderly and disabled residents of West Lancashire to receive equal treatment from the old Tory WLBC that unfortunately did not agree, leading to the social exclusion of some immobile disabled residents. My personal suggestion of honouring the County Regiment led to us having probably the proudest day ever in West Lancashire, with the help of Cllr Adrian Owens who wrote "You will be pleased to learn that this evening the motion passed unanimously. Colonel Amlot from the Regiment was accorded a standing ovation and we look forward to a parade and march through Ormskirk next year. Thank you". After the Parade I wrote to Cllr Owens "I was reading through the emails we exchanged after I made the suggestion to honour our County Regiment. As you said today, we got there in the end, and what an end? This celebration of our Regiment was quite simply, as my original mail said, the greatest honour of all. To see all these young people who risk their lives for us was so moving. Little did I know what Council could do and how our residents would react to it all. Well, we should all be so proud of this great day. I know I am".
