still waiting for the evidence to prove that this white elephant is actually needed other than for MHK jolly's to Liverpool one.

As I said, it was probably desirable at 3 or 9 million but at 53 it is a whole new boardgame.

I proposed this in March last as the pandemic took hold. Close the project and take the hit on the expenditure so far. It was never the right thing to do, and Covid was the perfect face saving excuse

Is it fair to conclude that the taxpayer has been massively misled with this, and there has been no subsequent accountability in respect of the mounting costs of this project.  Running costs are

It really is mind blowing incompetence and seemingly no responsibility for the overspends and what the tax payer is left to fund. I asked on facebook maybe 8 years ago in a open question could anyone

Will the new Steam Packet vessel fit comfortably in this berth?

Most likely not! Can we have another 50 million for amendments please laa.

Does there need to be a new thread asking how the fuck it’s suddenly £53million? 

Is that to be linked to anything that delves into the millions, for everything else, that have disappeared into the mists and sink holes around the Mersey?

Ask Anderson, and Hatton, and others.....

Perhaps our Liverpool ferry terminal will have hotel and conference facilities? A Tynpotwald lounge for the the politicos to have a nose bag  I hope there’s a fully staffed cafe instead of vending machines.

Looks a bargain compared to upwards of 53m for a tin shed.

You mean a building of a limited life span - certainly not value for money.

Tory press & media are trying to smear McCluskey with this, but the self-indulgent excesses of the 'Johnson Tories' make it look miniscule in comparison

If you look at the articles and say for example the Sky News article on this, most of the critics have been Labour MPs and many sponsored by Unite. The complaint being that there appeared to be little tendering process and it was originally estimated to cost £7m. The building was constructed by a building company owned by Len McCluskys friend and the Health and Safety on the site was conducted by a company controlled by the son of the mayor of Liverpool. Incidentally the owner of the building company was arrested into allegations of wrongdoing etc. 
 

It’s not looking good for the trade Union Unite or Labour.
