In short, a complete farce.

Barnet Council and the strike that never was
You couldn't make it up (really). A group of local residents turned up at Barnet Council offices at North London Business Park today to protest about One Barnet. The Council intelligence had a massive failure and the company they have outsourced security for the complex to were informed that the workforce were on strike. As a result bemused members of staff and visitors were grilled about whether they were on strike. Reports even reach the Barnet Eye that the Barnet Council head of HR took advice about legal action against the unions for not notifying the council of the strike. The confusion was only resolved when Union officials informed Barnet that the Union wasn't on strike and the protestors were nothing to do with the Unions.
