We're doomed... Liverpool Council is in danger of being run by Dad's Army
Council meetings at Liverpool Council could often be compared with a comedy sketch.
It would be unfair to compare the current top management to the bumbling brigade of men in the TV comedy Dad's Army.
But council leader Warren Bradley told the assembled troops at the full council that he was worried that the local authority could end up being run by Dad's Army.
I thought I heard someone whisper "we're doomed".
Although I couldn't be sure whether that was reference to the prospect of Labour taking control, or the Lib Dems hanging on to power after May.
But Don't Panic Cllr Bradley has asked Cpt Mainwaring, sorry chief executive Colin Hilton, to do some research on the age profile of the council's workforce to make sure it doesn't end up being run by Dad's Army
