Correction to news item 1. Have you got the right story? Should this read as follows. A complete numbskull and the remains of his dicredited party will hopefully not be returned to power by the Liverpool Electorate next year. Power will be handed over in a traditional ceremony for which the Chief has managed to grab himself an additional 24k a year to oversee the return.
