I have spoken to a friend of the outgoing CEO of Barnet Council, Mr Nick Walkley and he told me that Nick had one comment about leaving Barnet. He said "I won't miss the obsessive bloggers or Brian Coleman". Now personally I can't believe that Nick would have said such a horrid thing about poor old Brian, but hey ho.
Ever since I first met Mr Walkley, he's been threatening to buy me a pint and discuss our mutual interest in Punk Rock. I think I had better take advantage of the offer soon, don't you? I must say that I have been disappointed as to how little Nick has done to encourage the punk scene in Barnet in his 3 years in office. He may not have created "Anarchy in the UK" in his time here, but he leaves us with just a little taste of it in Friern Barnet library. Strangely, the locals have rather taken to it.
Please note that Nicks friend may just have been having a bit of fun in quoting him. It is a great quote though ! Strange as it may seem, even Council CEO's have mates with senses of humour (probaly just as well).
