So we start at the blog of Councillor Robert Rams. What does this tell us? It tells us that despite representing a ward a mile away from Friern Barnet Library, Robert Rams doesn't know how to spell Friern. .Rather sad really for a man supposed to be in charge of our libraries. Robert clearly didn't listen when his teacher used to tell him "i before e except after c". I mean, I'm a dyslexic and even I can remember that. Here's his blog - http://robertrams.wordpress.com/ and he also seems to think that it is sensible to make announcements that have no connection with reality. In his blog he states that the new usage of the library will be managed by Community Barnet. Sadly within 24 hours, this unravelled. Community Barnet put out a statement.
Then we have the blogs. Mrs Angry reports that Bill Murphy, the contractor hired by Rams to carve up the library service turned up at a meeting, Bill Murphy arrived at a meeting to tell those trying to save the library that "things have changed". I could rehash what Mrs A says, but she does a grand job and I feel too rough - http://wwwbrokenbarnet.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/the-peoples-library-councils-position.html -
And then there are the tweets. Here are a few (newest first) which mention Councillor Rams. As you can see, it isn't looking good for old Sheepsjacksie right now.
If this is what happens with One Small library, what on earth will happen with the £1 Billion Capita One Barnet project. Chaos reigns supreme. When I was a spotty teenager, I was discussing the name of our band with our old lead singer. He suggested "Chaos in Barnet". My Dad was listening and he piped in "Barnet isn't really the sort of place people associate with chaos, you'd be better off calling it "Toasted Teacakes in Totteridge". Oh how times change.
