A Labour councillor has just told the Dame the following...
"Buckmaster has secured a 'pound for pound' promise to augment his charity funds, plus managed to do a deal with the manufacturer, so they will have TWO brain scanners which is pretty amazing."
All the Dame can say is "Well done, Councillor Buckmaster....that is an incredible feat".
It has been a stellar Mayoral Year for both the Mayor and his Deputy, Cllr Borwick.
Let's hope the new mayor and his deputy can deploy the same energy and enterprise.
Interestingly, Buckmaster made a very good point. He commented that the role of mayor was non political and thus there was no reason why a future Mayor should not be drawn from the Labour side(not Lib Dem and not Dezzie...please note)
When James Cecil, in a moment of naivety, suggested
something to the same effect he was called up to Pooter's
penthouse suite and told that if he carried on in this way he
could kiss goodbye to a safe seat!
Funny to think humble old Pooter had power of life
and death over the political career of a Cecil!
