An emergency safeguarding message has been left with our representative on Wirral Council, Seacombe Councillor Adrian Jones

In brief, the following is a recorded message, left with recently re-elected Councillor Adrian ER Jones of Seacombe ward…

Adrian Jones reassured the Wirral public many months ago that he is a supporter of Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn.

If his belief system has indeed gone through the dramatic transformation required to reflect this new set of values, then he will now regret his negligence in not acting to prevent potential abuse of vulnerable adults when sitting on the following Employment and Appointments Committee in January 2012:

With Adrian Jones named as the “Responsible Portfolio Holder” this committee meeting made a number of calculated deliberations at the time.  These served to endorse the departure just days earlier of two senior Department of Adult Social Services abusers of disabled people, Maura Noone and Mike Fowler, who left Wirral Council with:

  • £110,000 each in public money
  • compromise agreements with gagging clauses to help in shielding their abuse
  • clean bills of health they could present to prospective future employers;
  • and no disciplinary action for their proven involvement in abuse of disabled people

If he regrets the dangerous situation that has now arisen due to his and other councillors’ abject failure on 12th January 2012, he will act upon our voice message, ring us back or email us and ask for further details of the non-specific emergency safeguarding message we referred to on his answer phone at 2:00 pm today.


Councillor Adrian Jones responded this evening with the following email:
