Jackie Weavers and her Handforth Parish Council Zoom meeting found itself the talk of the internet this week.

Local council meetings aren’t exactly known for being action-packed, but a Zoom call between councillors in Handforth had more twists and turns than a Netflix series.

It’s quickly been labelled British comedy gold, and the full video has been shared hundreds of thousands of times on Twitter.

What happened in the Handforth Paris Council meeting?

The meeting quickly descended into foul-mouthed chaos, and thankfully it was all caught on camera for the world to see.

After a regular meeting had been held, chairman Brian Tolver challenged its legitimacy while on the call.

“This meeting has not been called according to the law,” he ranted.

“It’s only the chairman who can remove people from the meeting. You have no authority here Jackie Weaver, no authority at all,” shouted Brian.

That didn’t sit well clerk Jackie, who booted him off the call.

Another man then yelled at Jackie, shouting: “Read the standing orders – read them and understand them!”

Clearly having had enough, Jackie then banished more rebel councillors to the Zoom waiting room.

As things became more tense, it came to the attention of the group that the chairman had labelled himself as “clerk” on his Zoom.

“He is not the clerk of parish council, whether he declares himself to be or not,” said John Smith.

“Please refer to me as Britney Spears from now on,” joked Jackie in response.
