Cirque Du Soleil

The sun is shining down on the circus that we call Hackney Council. Obviously the word "circus" is a term of affection referring to the way we're all one big family, not a suggestion that there's anything frivolous or comic about Hackney.

But on the subject of a circus, I seem to recall a dreadful accident a few years ago in which a juggler cut off his own legs with a pair of chainsaws. That was terrible enough news. But when I published an article a week ago about our Chief Executive, entitled Penny Wields Her Chopper, little did I think that history would repeat itself in another dreadful accident.

My sources inform me that Penny chopped off her own head today, announcing her resignation to senior staff at noon. I do hope that this was simply a resignation and not a real act of self-mutilation as with the poor chap who cut off his own penis in the pizza restaurant Zizzi last night.

Yep Penny is going. Related to the Borough Solicitor sacking do you think?
