MORE QUESTIONS TO THE AUDIT COMMISSION

Dear Ms Painter,

I do not understand your reply. You have not responded to any of the evidence against Mr Watkinson.
You are also silent on whether Mr Watkinson has received tickets from Mr Halsall to attend the Summer Pops. Am I to attribute this silence as confirmation?
The allegations were made against Mr Watkinson by Counc Warren Bradley and Counc Mike Storey. I am not clear whether you have contacted either of these councillors concerning their allegations? Do you plan to do so?
You say the Commission will consider any information received as a result of disclosures which are made to it. When will you be doing this and how? What information and which disclosures will you be considering specifically?
You say that the allegations of impropriety have been subject to internal investigation and review by the city council. How do you know this? Can you provide me with any evidence of this, to support your contention?
I can provide you with tape recorded testimony from elected members which supports some of the allegations made. Can you tell me what you will do with this evidence if it is provided to you?
More recent allegations were also made on the blog about the activities of Jason Harborow in relation to the Summer Pops and CMP Entertainment. Are you considering these and if so, how?
You say
that "Mr Watkinson will continue to consider any information that you send and take this into account during the course of his audit". Can you tell me which information will he be considering specifically?

It's true that we don't know what we've got until it's gone, but it's also true that we don't know what we've been missing until it arrives.

Painter is an appropriate name for this white-wash merchant.

Take this higher Tony, their attempted cover-up is clearly corrupted.

Tell us more about this allegation that Watkinson went to the summer-pops at Halsall's favour (and public expense?).

If this is true he too needs to be sacked and prosecuted (along with Halsall), let alone removed from any audit dealings with Liverpool.

If statements are available from Storey and Bradley, then surely they have a public duty to make this available to the public?
Surely if it's true then tell someone, tell the public, use your connections BRADLEY AND STOREY.

They haven't got the guts - everyone knows it was them that had all the gen on milhenny and halsall and henshaw but because hilton refused to act, they went away with their tails between their legs like naughty schoolboys. they have no bottle. just you wait - bradely will do nothing about the cops or the audit commission. storey is finished now as a serious politician anyway.

If the police are now involved then they can make the politicians talk, it should not be about bottle, but about doing the job that they are paid for, that is a public servant, who has been given the council tax payers authority to run this City, wisely and in the intrests of the people of Liverpool, not just the EVIL few.

What IS the answer?

Any ideas Tony?
