Sneak is rather impressed by the mightiness of one particular blogger's sword.
The operator of the Much&Brass blog obviously has a bit of a thing for his council representatives, and a rather critical eye. In fact so critical is he, that apparently his blogging has forced a number of council leaders to up and walk out of a meeting, and just because he called them 'jackasses' and some other flattering things (they want to try being Sneak!).
Niall Connolly is the blogger in question. He seems reluctant to accept responsibility for the incident, but Sneak would like to buy him a beer all the same.
The incident was covered live on the Much&Brass blog and went a little something like this, "about 33 minutes into the meeting, it all started to go Pete Tong...
The Vice Chair stood up, put on his jacket and started a brief speech about how he was sick and tired of something or other and how he was going to leave it all up to the Town. At that point it seemed like he was presenting his resignation and this stunning news was greeted by the audience with rapturous applause. This seemed to trigger of a convulsion of action on the part of most of the rest of the council. As one they rose up and the Chair was subject to a proverbial avalanche of resignation letters before he himself resigned."
According to the BBC, Ex-vice chairman and businessman Anthony Canvin, said, "I'm not going to tolerate it when I'm working for the town. I started it. I said 'I've had enough' and handed in my resignation."
Sneak thinks that whoever encouraged Mr Canvin to watch the Tom Cruise film, Jerry Maguire, the night before is owed a beer as well.
