Breaking: Richard Cornelius new Barnet Leader
According to former Tory councillor and Barnet Bugle blogger Daniel Hope, Richard Cornelius is the new leader of Barnet council.
Councillor Cornelius is not known for his love of the One Barnet programme: oh dear, now CE Nick Walkley has even more reason to sit at home, sobbing on his sofa.
As for the other contenders: Andrew Harper is feeling somewhat deflated. Don't be so hard on yourself, Andrew. Maybe you'll retain your portfolio somehow. * Update, Harper is reported to have come last, which is the mark of a gentleman, of course, but more importantly, if true, it surely sends a clear message from the Tory councillors of Barnet that they want an end to the One Barnet idiocy.
Mark Shooter: well, commiserations, but I'd take it as a compliment, if I were you, Mark, and breathe a sigh of relief.
What an interesting week this is going to be, here in the dark, declining empire of Broken Barnet.
