Barry Phelps Returns To The Fold?
The Dame was thrilled to be at the mayoral retiring party in the Parlour. She even got a bit tipsy making rather an exhibition of herself dancing excitedly to the Jamaican steel band. Sadly, she was unable entice Pooter onto the dance floor..... But enough of the Dame.... Cllr Mills has proven a popular Mayor. Her successor, Danny 'Boys' Moylan's chum, 'Buffy' Buckmaster will be a very different mayor. I understand Anderson and Sheppard are busy running up a new morning coat for him so he can meet the 'Royalty' with equanimity.....such a terrible old snob! The Dame also managed to catch up with Pooter Cockell's boss, Mr Myers. The Dame was shocked to see how plump he had become. Her suggestion that perhaps a few tennis lessons might be in order was met with a glacial stare.... But the big surprise of the evening was the surprise appearance of ex Cllr Phelps-replete with his Mayoral medal! Barry was forced out by Mr Myers for using the council email system to send out emails of young boys with lewd captions. You may imagine Pooter and Mr Myers were none to keen to socialise with the disgraced old reprobate-particularly as an interest in under age lads has become rather a theme of the Rotten Borough! Could Barry be plotting his return to power and is this the beginnings of his rehabilitation? Or maybe he just gatecrashed. Here is a pic of Barry
