Handforth Parish Council met again, and Jackie Weaver isn’t happy with how it went

But on Wednesday, still recovering from his reluctant brush with fame, members of Handforth Parish Council called again to give the people what they wanted: a sequel.

The group’s first meeting went viral earlier this month thanks to its horrific sag, petty disagreements and Machiavellian maneuvers as councilors and senior officials for power dramatically evicted in the virtual waiting room.

Their follow-up meeting was widely anticipated. And, if possible, it is still settled in deep chaos, as members of the public find out and the main characters are treated to their new celebrity.

But it was not necessarily missing the main character from the original – Jackie Weaver, an adviser to local councils who won to reconsider the misbehavior of some members, removed Council President Brian Toler from the discussion Dia and claimed the moniker “Britney Spears”. For myself in the process.

And, if the original call was “The Godfather” of the Zoom debacles, the follow-up felt like “Grease 2” or “Jaws 3-D”, due to repeated adjectives from the first iteration. Was largely absent from organic humor. Members of the public are unsuccessfully trying to make a joke.

Weaver told CNN on Thursday that she was “saddened” by the public’s disruptions. But his decision on some officials was equally difficult.

“I fear that at least none of the councilors who attended last night remain and Councilor Tollever did not accept any responsibility for the events of that evening in December,” she said.

CNN has contacted Tolver for comment. He told PA Media after his first meeting that Weaver “has no position other than to be invited” to speak, adding: “I have reason to be angry. ”

“We have not experienced the same behavior in other councils,” Weaver said, reflecting CNN’s first meeting, although the debate in local democracies could be quite heated. “

Tevar, Weavers’ rejection of the chairman indicated a slowdown in the original meeting, Wednesday’s discussion opened Given that “it was to take up to half an hour, we hope.”

The three-hour clutter was watched by thousands of people on YouTube via live stream – undoubtedly the largest audience a council meeting has ever met in Handforth. Some members of the public joined the zoom call – some wearing bucket hats, others in front of whimsical backgrounds.

The audience was first considered for a few performances, as the councilors introduced the audience to their off-screen story arc (Alan Murdoch’s in his garden to get some good weather, and caught) Chairman Talwar’s voice has dried up because he is “answering the phone to a lot of people”).

But the participants quickly addressed the elephant in the jhum. “There is a lot of interest in this meeting due to recent viral incidents,” Tolever said, warning his fellow councilors. “It can be seen by a much wider audience. Various TV stations are paying attention.”

“You probably don’t want to appear in the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical playing part of Julie’s iPad,” he joked to an oblivious audience. Lloyd Webber, a veteran of many famous show making music, Performed “A Song for Jackie Weaver” earlier this month.

Tollever referenced one of several quotable lines from earlier discussion, “A member of the public used a short Anglo-Saxon phrase and thus earned immortality in the pages of The Times newspaper.” “You can avoid this by clicking your mute button.”

Unfortunately, Tollever failed to realize that he could also mute the members of the public who had joined. He and his colleagues spent more on call backing jokes from participants who had quoted them back since the first meeting.

There were deliberate disruptions, plus technical interruptions. When one participant failed to mute his computer, Tolver jokingly warned: “If you’re not careful you’ll be banned from Peru.”

Jackie weaver decides

The first meeting dominated the Internet and attracted the least audience. A lawyer addressed a Texas court until the cat was trapped inside the filter) is.

And the biggest star to come from the call was undoubtedly Weaver, who didn’t have a significant amount of bullshit reaction to the bullshit that won her accolades and spots on the national broadcaster.

She told CNN on Thursday that her immediate celebrity status had become “unrealistic”, adding that she enjoys mixing with people she admired Anton du Beke, A TV dancer who almost met Weavers. “And on the other hand (hand) I have had the privilege of reaching out to so many people to find out more about local democracy.”

But his response to Wednesday’s meeting was mixed. She continued to be widely seen with Tolever, criticizing the December fiasco for failing to take responsibility. “However, we noticed that other councilors keep quietly trying to move forward on local community issues,” she said.

First meeting star Jackie Weaver.

The weavers were less pleased with those who hijacked the call, with repeated attempts at humor that eventually did little other than deter councilors from doing their work.

“I feel sad at that,” he told CNN. “By all means be interested in your local council meeting, but it’s not a bull pit,” Weaver said.

Weaver was not present at the second meeting, as the council has now reinstated its clerk, but said it would continue to assist the group in the future.

And viewers watching will surely hope that he does – so that the unanswered plot lines of the first call finally get the resolutions they deserve.
