GET this: Camden’s Liberal Democrats are more than ready for the upcoming budget-setting meeting at the Town Hall, a night where one of the most eye-watering settlements in recent history will be signed off. It will inevitably be a highly charged evening where some celebrated services finally face a yes or a no on future funding. To prepare for the debate, the group and Lib Dem supporters staged an ‘away day’ on Saturday (*away day = hiring a room in the Town Hall).
At this private session, whispers have it, members embarked on a role play of how the meeting may pan out. With blustery brilliance, John Bryant apparently played the part of heckling Labour finance man Theo Blackwell, likely to be the busiest man in the amphitheatre at the main event. Flick Rea passed the audition as an angry union campaigner. What a scene it must have been. Like Glee club, or something like that.
