|DIPLOMATIC RECEPTION AT TOWN HALL|
A few years back Sir Merrick Pooter-Cockell thought it would be fun to institute a lavish annual reception at the Town Hall for the Diplomatic Corps.
The more prescient of the Dames' readers might wonder why Prime Minister Cockell was doing the job of our Foreign Secretary.
Anyway, the Dame heard social interaction between
Their Excellencies Accredited to the Court of St James's and our councillors was somewhat strained: it seemed that the diplomats were struggling to make conversation with our councillors....some even wondered about the purpose of the evening...apart from massaging the fragile ego of Cockell.
The only purpose could be to castigate certain 'excellencies from sandy places' about their people racing around our streets in their vile cars making our lives hell.
Anyway, we hope Barry Quirk tells councillors...."sorry, you lot, Ferrero Rocher is off the menu this year"
