During a meeting, a discussion between members of the Handforth Parish Council become so chaotically unproductive that the video went viral and the internet has found an unsung hero in Jackie Weaver.

The footage displays a heated discussion within the Planning and Environment Committee, which took place in early December 2020.

According to LBC, the video was originally posted to the local authority’s website but later went viral overnight after it was shared on YouTube and Twitter.

The meeting took a turn downhill when Chairman Brian Tolver refused to recognize the legitimacy of the meeting, and labeled himself as the “clerk”.

Enter our hero, Jackie Weaver from the Cheshire Association of Local Councils:

“The chairman simply declared himself ‘clerk’ and notified everybody of the case.

There is no way of stopping him from calling himself the clerk. Please refer to me as Britney Spears from now on.”

When the chairman angrily retorted but claiming Weaver had no power over the meeting, she simply removed him from the meeting and locked him in a Zoom waiting room – the virtual equivalent of a time-out.

Various clips and memes have been circulating around social media, with one person posting:

“I’ve never missed in person meetings more than I did watching this parish council meeting descend into chaos.”

Someone else joked:

“I have an appointment in 5 hours and should definitely be sleeping now, but here I am watching a parish council meeting. If they did a British version of Parks and Rec it would definitely turn out like this. #noregrets #JACKIEWEAVER

Minutes from the meeting, posted on the council’s website, reveal that Weaver removed several meeting members from the call due to ‘disruptive behavior’.
