It Ain't Over Till The Fat Lady Sings-At Holland Park Opera

Tot Brill Singing

Those privileged to know the Dame understand she and Pooter have one thing in common.
In their desperation to appear soigne and cultivated they pretend to be opera aficionados'.
However, this is where the Dame and Pooter  diverge.....

Over the years Pooter has been 'playing the patron' spending millions of our money at HPO to indulge his puerile pretensions. The singing now has to stop. Pooter's back benchers, heeding the Dame, have insisted Pooter cease this huge waste of money when front line services are being vaporised. Or, so it seems, from the Cabinet paper below.

Fire eating and street theatre organiser, Tot Brill, has been tasked with delivering the bad news to David Colver, HPO supremo. Very soon he and buddies are going to have to stand on their own financial feet and learn to pay their own way. About time too!

And no, David, don't ask Pooter if he will invest some council pension fund money:the answer will have to be a firm NO!
