Sylvia Wilson comments on Queen's Birthday Honours

FYI HUTTIES…  My opinion: How crass that folk like Max Steinberg has been recognised (probably by some of his high placed cronies - allegedly) as worthy of a CBE for services to business and the community… (how Liverpool has faired through his reign is anyone's guess) regardless, he is only doing the job he was employed and paid to do. His M.O. as an "A1 climber” and his rise to the higher echelons of power has been swift, but not so productive… From a “glorified accountant” in the Housing Corporation, to Chief Exec of Elevate, (latterly known as Regeneration Pennine Lancashire Ltd) he made a “pigs ear” of the several areas under Elevate leaving all of the areas in decimation through demolition, boarded-up properties, shut down places of work, empty churches and lost communities... and with no new build during the c. ten years of HMRI to speak of during his term, (in the former Elevate areas) to show for the millions spent, except on plush offices, fancy cars, expenses for traipsing about the country attending conference after conference and his trademark of expensive “undertaker suits…!  

If anyone deserves the Queens award, it should be those who have been brave enough to fight to save their homes, work, church and communities whilst holding down full time jobs and running a family life, not those who are “patted on the back” for doing and being paid for government jobs…! 
Of the hundreds of heroes I know and have worked with over the last 12 years, every one of YOU should receive the highest accolade possible, you have shown true grit in the face of adversity… BRAVO, ALL OF YOU!
