Swiss banker from Bucks
Time for another look at Amersham Councillor Mr Garnett, who will wave the blue flag in Wavertree.
He is truly the invisible man, even the national Tory website can't find a photo or biography on him. And perhaps I have found the reason why.
I've done some digging and found him on the Amersham Tory website. where he boasts of being a Director of a large banking corporation.
Further research revealed the bank in question was the highly respectable Union Bank of Switzerland, otherwise known as UBS, famous for holding on to the assets of holocaust victims until 1998. Last year UBS declared losses of £11.6 billion and had to write off $49 billion in sub-prime loans!
If you're looking for someone to blame for the recession, Alf Garnett is the closest you're going to see in Liverpool.
To be honest though, I don't expect our Swiss Banker to do much more than come up for the day, and then fizz back to Bucks.
So get those tomatoes ready!
