Another comedian

Liam the Lurcher may be the Bulldog's favourite lapdog, but Fylde's finest might be stepping onto the stage while he's fighting to be a Blackpool MP with his young Harry Enfield stand up routine.

Watch Liam's party political broadcast here.

And they keep on coming

And another lookalike, this one from Mr Bailout again.

F.A.O Mr D Dog Esq,

I have been following your "Lookalaike" articles with some interest since you published them on your
satirical website. My chauffeur informs me that Liverpool was once home to a popular musical group by the name of The Beatles. Apparently, one of their songs was named "I Am The Eggman". This prompted
me to look through our archives once again. Eventually, I came across a picture which drew a startling
resemblance to the Leader of the Liverpool Labour Group. Therefore, I offer it to you for your consideration.
My very best wishes,
R.B.S. Bailout Esq.

Sidebottom returns

You know it is, it really is! Singer Frank Sidebottom has come out of retirement to play the fictional character of Jim Noakes, a Labour councillor in Clubmoor.

Will he be persuaded to redo one of his hit numbers for the much vaunted Councillor Idol talent contest?

Another lookalike

A big thanks to Mr Bailout for another lookalike.

Dear Mr D Dog Esq,
The recent Audit Commission report on behaviour of councillors noted the somewhat ungracious way they
occasionally treat each other in ways unbefitting of gentleman. In my view, there is never any excuse to resort
to name-calling and other bad manners. Speaking of which, this reminds me of the lead singer of a similarly-
named popular music group by the name of Buster Bloodvessel. My chauffeur tells me that this name was taken from
the bus conductor in the film " Magical Mystery Tour" [whatever that is]. However, I digress. My main point is
that there seems to be a striking resemblance between said Mr Bloodvessel and the current leader of the Liverpool Labour Group. I attach a photograph for your consideration.

Standing against intolerance

Labour Councillors and would be councillors where left stunned after Municipal Pitbull Joe Anderson announced that any Labour member who voted against him would be thrown out of his group.

The irony that he did this during a council debate condemning fascism appeared to be lost on Joe.

A fellow Labour frontbench Councillor went on to demonstrate his libertarian credentials, by calling on a Lib Dem to be "taken away and locked up" for pointed out that the rise of the BNP was partly due to Labour abandoning the working classes.

He then offered to exterminate members of the British Nazi Party by mowing them down in a bus, if one could be provided and BNP members could be arranged to stand in line.

Bravo! Lets all stand together against intolerance!

A Rose by any other name

A corrie viewer from Croxteth sent this in, astonished at the resemblance of the well know Street character and the fragrant member for her ward.

Moonlighting for Beryl Cook

My new Lookalikes feature seems to have really been a big hit with all my loyal readers, I now have had a dozen uncanny likenesses sent in for me to post over the the next few weeks.

The next one has been sent in by Nick.

By night we might know her as Patsy Cline, and by day as Sharon Sullivan, but it seems the singing councillor has also been moonlighting as a model for the artist Beryl Cook.

Keep them coming, and you keep on coming back for more exiting lookalikes.
Lots of doggie love,

Greens make homeless sleep in the snow

I was shocked to discover that Liverpool Green Councillors had refused to allow homeless people shelter on freezing winter nights.

The Lib Dem Council, rightly, has a policy to make safe, warm accommodation available when winter temperature drops below freezing. But apparently the city's green councllors refused to allow a community building in their ward to be used. Meaning that some homeless people were forced to sleep rough in temperatures well below freezing.

I hope they are thoroughly ashamed of themselves.

Trotting round Kensington

Spent an enjoyable Saturday morning trotting around Kensington and leafy Fairfield, but I was shocked at how much rubbish was dumped everywhere. The area is a disgrace, and no where near as clean as when it was represented by Liberal Democrats.

Message to the Bulldog - I know you read this - GET IT SORTED! You should be ashamed of yourself. Try devoting less time to your inane prattling in the blogsphere and more time getting things sorted for your constituents!

Another lookalike

Just had the following letter, in response to the previous lookalike picture.

I have been advised that a satirical website has been created under the name of "Dude the Dog" which presently carries
a "Lookalike" photograph of the leader of the Liverpool Labour Group. My chauffeur found it quite hilarious when he saw it, but I believe that you might have used the wrong picture. Please find attached an alternative version from our archive which shows that these particular individuals must have, indeed, been separated at birth.
Best regards,
R.S.B. Bailout Esq.

Keep em coming!
