Nick Paget-Brown needs support in these troubled times. He does not need mischief makers, like Danny Boys, stirring up trouble.
However, in his favour he is an avid reader of the Dame's stuff: so much so that he answered the Dame's demand for a library shot and sent in one of himself from his Oxford days.
One hopes that Cllr Ahern will not call him in for a dressing down.... Conservative councillors are forbidden the Hornet.
For some reason he also copied in his colleagues and referred to himself as 'Christopher Biggins'

Danny Boys thrives on dividing and ruling.
Common sense prevailed when Danny Boys' schmoozing of Conservative councillors failed to cut the mustard.
Danny Boys election as leader would have been the severest blow to local democracy.
