A kind reader sent the Dame this picture of Cllr Palmer. In his paw he clutches a petition he organised to stop Sainsburys taking over the North Pole pub.
A group of committed locals had slaved and sweated to collect the 2,000 signatures.
Sadly, their efforts were in vain....Cllr 'Brainbox' Palmer had managed to muddle the fact that it was Tesco-not Sainsbury who were going to close down the pub.
The result? A furious group of residents.... a very upset Sainsburys and a pulped petition!
