Cllr Moon Yesterday’s News?

He was, until he wrote on social media to make public “You [Preesall] won’t be losing me to anyone let alone WL. All it has been is a helping hand to that area but it is due to come to an end very soon” and he re-appeared from the relative obscurity of Wyre for the planning chair paying him another £6,204 allowance. He’s now the “victim” of his own publicity. Why did he come to WL, when will he leave? Why did he vote FOR green bin taxes in Wyre and AGAINST green bin taxes in WL?

As we await his upcoming departure “very soon” from his West Lancashire ward, cast your minds back to 13 September 2017…“West Lancashire Conservative Councillor Sam Currie has called on Cllr Liz Savage to ‘make her mind up’ as to where she wishes to represent. He told QLocal  “While Cllr Savage, who lives within the South Ribble constituency, jumps on every bandwagon going in Southport, she is in real danger of neglecting the West Lancashire residents who pay her allowances! If she wishes to represent Southport, then she would be well advised to stand down from her position on West Lancashire Borough Council allowing somebody who wants to see a better West Lancashire take her place. Her actions stink of political opportunism” Cllr Currie said.

And then came a blast of indignation from Cllr Wally Westley as he accused Cllr Savage of bringing West Lancashire council into disrepute. What does this say to the people of West Lancashire and perhaps more importantly, the people of Ashurst in Skelmersdale who she supposedly represents? If I was a Labour voter within West Lancashire I would be feeling very short changed seeing someone happily taking my tax money but spending more time in Southport. I call on Labour leader Cllr Moran to take decisive action and force Cllr Savage into deciding which area she wishes to represent”.

To paraphrase Currie and Westley “Moon is in real danger of neglecting the West Lancashire residents who pay his allowances” and “If I was a voter within West Lancashire I would feeling very short changed seeing Moon happily taking my tax money but spending more time in Wyre”.

Isn’t the real stink the hypocrisy of political opportunism wherever and whenever it occurs, as evidenced by the green bin tax farce?
