Champ News is a service of Champion Newspapers ... Sefton & West Lancashire's favourite local newspaper
Author dishes the Dirt
12 March 2009

Author Pat Regan's third book is likely to cause quite a stink in Sefton.

Dirty Politics, in which Pat investigates "misleading" information put out by councils about issues such as the fortnightly bin collection, also names local politicians whose actions have got them into trouble.

But Pat is staying tight lipped as to who the individuals are, so as not to spoil the surprise when the book is released in June.

"I think certain people may have a heart attack when they read it," Pat said.

"I'm pleased that not much has been altered by the editor.  The publishers are very open minded and everything we have said we can prove."

Pat, of Sandbrook Road, Ainsdale, has spent seven months working on the book, that also "dispels myths about alternative energy" and looks at "ongoing wildlife habitat destruction committed by double dealing councils and ruthless politicians".

Pat says the book, that he describes as "uncompromising" and "no-nonsense" has been well received by publishers, Can Write Will Write, because it is "unique".

Although it focuses on Southport, it also tackles much wider issues.

On its release in June it will be available from major outlets including and supermarkets.

"It has been hugely enjoyable to write and it will get out a lot of truths that local residents need to know about," Pat said.
