This is the time of year when the Mayor sits in her Parlour constructing the invitation list for her Christmas shindig.
(The Dame will be out of the country so won't attend)
Normally, out of courtesy, the Mayor invites predecessors.
The Dame warns her not to invite disgraced ex councillor Barry Phelps...a one time Mayor of the Royal Borough and ex chairman of the Planning Committee.
To jog memories....Phelps was exposed by the Hornet's Nest for circulating a series of vile, innuendo laden emails of very under age boys.
Pooter was reluctant to fire his buddy but Sir Delboy Myers moved swiftly to do for Phelps.
Shamelessly, the deeply unpleasant Phelps had no compunction in using the Council's email system to circulate his filth to a select list
of ' demi monde establishment' figures.
No one accuses Phelps of 'acting out' his strange fantasies, but only the naive or blind would fail to see what motivated his disgusting behaviour.
The Dame gives a stern warning to the Mayor...you are NOT to invite Mr Phelps to your party...you do so at your peril.
