Diary: Liverpool speaker is talk of the town

We could not help but notice that Liverpool City Council PR chief Matt Finnegan was scheduled to speak this Thursday on the 'Liverpool story - the build up to 2008', on the city's successful European Capital of Culture bid.

Now, you will have noticed as we report this week that Finnegan has been suspended from his post (Public Sector News, p6) and thus, we find, pulled out of addressing the LGCommunications conference.

In steps Liverpool Culture Company marketing director Kris Donaldson.

While the culture status is, without doubt, a feather in the cap of a city that is rarely out of the limelight, there surely lies a more intriguing story behind Finnegan's abrupt exit.
