Show 218 - Jackie Weaver


Brace yourself for the most entertaining conversation you'll ever hear about Parish Councils, with Britain's favourite local government official. Jackie Weaver shot to fame for her chairing of a notorious Handforth Parish Council meeting and she updates us on what's happened since. Jackie also tells Matt why she went into local government and why she'd rather be council officer than an elected official. This isn't just a funny exploration of very local politics, it's about how human beings achieve things.
