It seems that as our local Tories all lack the nuts to stop this nonsense, it's down to you and me dear citizen to fight these idiots. Last night I was despondent, the plight of Connaught PLC workers had really upset me. This morning I look at it with fresh eyes. Look at what we've achieved. The Tory leadership caved in to public protests, lead by this blog against the Cabinet allowance rises. It may in some ways only be symbolic, but the architect of this misery isn't getting a pay rise. Now down to work.
Councillor Robert Rams believes that flogging off the Librarys of Barnet and making everyone order books online and pick them up at Tescos or Starbucks is a marvellous idea and that the people of Barnet will love him for this. I happen to believe that it is the most stupid idea imaginable. I suspect that when he implements his silly plan, many of his Tory Council colleagues will be thrown out by the electorate. Whilst this would be a marvellous thing for people like me who think they've had it coming, it would be a terrible thing for the children, pensioners and everyone else in Barnet.
I have decided to save Robert Rams from himself and persuade him of the error of his ways. For many of us, books are a vital part of our lives. It is absolutely clear to me that Councillor Rams needs to be educated. I am asking everyone in Barnet to bring a book for Councillor Robert Rams to a street stall I will be running between 10am and noon in Mill Hill Broadway on Saturday 25th September (provisional date). We will then deliver these books to Councillor Rams at the next cabinet meeting at Hendon Town Hall. I ask everyone who cares about the Library service in Barnet to please come along and show some support.
