Mrs Angry: Angry spirits, and the anti-Pinkham Way Councillor Kate Salinger

Link to 'Broken Barnet'

"Let's introduce a new occasional service from Broken Barnet: 'Mrs Angry Predicts' .... This will eventually be part of a subscription-only clairvoyant and fortune-telling service for the discerning reader.

"Now then. Shhh ... listen ... my spirit guide is whispering in my ear ... yes ... I have a message coming through the ether for someone worried about the future ... is there an outsourcing company in the audience tonight? Someone keen to muscle in on £750 million of business from the London Borough of Barnet? I'm listening ... oh dear. I see. Is it you, dear, over there, with the worried look on your face?

[More is available by following the link.]

[and on the following post to that, on
the 'Broken Barnet' web site, is the 
main point of our post...]

"Broken Barnet's Night of the Long Knives" - Part One: "That's discipline for you..." 

"On Thursday morning, at 10 am, there will be a meeting of Barnet Council's standards' sub-committee.

"This meeting will formally consider the findings of a report by an officer appointed to investigate a complaint made by a Conservative councillor, Kate Salinger, member for Coppetts Ward." 

"...  Councillor Kate Salinger alleges that an article was forwarded in its entirety in order to denigrate and ridicule her to other Conservative councillors and anyone else a particular email may have been forwarded [to]."

about Pinkham Way, last May

"I wish to make it very clear that I am not in favour of the part of the plan that identifies the site at Pinkham Way as a waste disposal facility.

"From the moment I heard this mooted (Autumn 2009) I felt that the implications for the traffic in the area, apart from many other considerations, were horrendous."
