So who says that Barnets Youtube initiative is a waste of money?

Well I suppose you can guess who, can't you. The moaning minnies who hunt through every council document, every press release and every statement to find some mud to fling.

I thought I'd check the Youtube site out. I looked at the most viewed page. The most viewed page is for the recycling with over 2,000 views. For me the most informative was the cashless parking video (590 views).

The idea of councils using Youtube is in its infancy and Barnet leads the way. A small minority of moaners think that this is a waste of money and that the cash would be better spent on inquirys into football stadium sales. I think that things which improve the quality of life of residents are well worth the small cost. Barnet is lucky to have Mike Freer in charge, not some dinosaur who's idea of communication is to invite the local Union leaders to the Town Hall for beer and sandwiches.

Rog T is playing away !

Rog T claims in his blog that he's a good Catholic and a family man. As you can see, the Friends of Freer have uncovered evidence that he's been playing away!

Naughty old Rog T !

Marvellous Matthew Destroys Dismal Dismore

With the holiday season upon us, we all need a good book to read. Here's one which every right thinking person should take a look at. It's savage, witty and a fine read. Now I'd always been of the opinion that the MP for Hendon, Andrew Dismore was a bit of a non-entity, but it seems that he's to blame for far more than we all thought. Quentin Letts "50 people who buggered up Britain" currently has pride of place on my bedside table and it certainly opened my eyes to the damage Mr Dismore has done as a MP.

Whilst we are on the subject of Andrew Dismore, I was most impressed with the way Matthew Offord, PPC for Hendon put him in his place on his fine new blog. Matthews blog is witty, incisive, irreverent and not for the namby pamby PC brigade. I love it. Of all the Barnet political blogs, it is far and away the funniest and the best. Beware of cheap imitations.

I'm thinking of starting a "Mum's for Matthew" blog in his honour. Anyway, back to the ironing.

NOTE : Sorry to say I've made a big boo boo. The author of BARNETSTHIRDEYE blog has let me know that he's NOT MATTHEW. He's very much younger and much more handsome (gosh, he must be very handsome indeed). He should put his picture on, he'd get loads more fans if he's that handsome. Is it just me or do the local Labour party have a policy of only having ugly recruits - look at Rog T. Many apologies to Matthew, it was only because it was so good, that it fooled me - Sorry Matthew.

Labour isn't working

A very interesting story on the Times website. Those of us of a certain age remember this poster well. It is amazing that it is still as powerful today.
Rather funny really to think that everyone on the poster was a Conservative !
