Working 9 to 5

Today I worked for the Alliance Against 4x4s at our office at Angel. It amazes me how ordered and straight-forward the working day seems in comparison to looking after the increasingly mobile, ever-mischievous Miss Cope. Indeed, 'phone calls, emails, writing and organising sans baby is a veritable pleasure.

Just watching the full council meeting now, live on the web - who needs soap operas with such a cast of fools and rogues (aka Labour)? Especially when the leader of the council screams, foaming at the mouth, that the leader of the opposition (Highgate's own Cllr Neil Williams) "couldn't lead a piss-up in a brewery!" What an absolute disgrace. Is it any wonder that the whole council is a complete mess when the leader of the council cannot even string a coherant sentence together without swearing and insulting a colleague in a most unprofessional manner.

I can only assume Cllr Meehan had visited the aforesaid brewery prior to the council meeting judging by the way he was talking...

  1. Hmmm - I hardly think saying someone can't 'lead a piss-up in a brewery' is the most unparliamentary language I've ever heard. I don't think there's anything wrong in reaching for vernacular phrases, what's more disappointing is that the phrase should be 'organise a piss-up in a brewery', and is intended to disparage organisational rather than leadership quality (or indeed, ability to consume alcohol!)

    And since I'm in pedantic mode, it's 'coherent' not 'coherant' - although given the context maybe coheRANT was a deliberate mis-spelling?
