For the next few months, Not The Barnet Times will be published on weekends only - unless there are any breaking stories which just can’t wait!
Don’t Call Me Dave is currently working on a book publishing project and, mad fool that he is, will shortly embark on an Open University course which requires 16 hours a week of study.
Barnet is well represented in the blogosphere with Rog T’s Barnet Eye, VickiM and Mr Toad, so residents still have plenty of choice for their news. However, as a card carrying member of the Conservative Party, Don’t Call Me Dave is saddened that there are no other active right wing blogs in Barnet apart from his.

This weekend’s blog will discuss the ongoing easyCouncil row. Don’t Call Me Dave thinks that likening council services to easyJet and Ryanair is reminiscent of Gerard Ratner calling his jewellery “crap”.
DCMD will also discuss Melvin Cohen’s shameful attempt to justify pocketing more public money, and the slight disagreement between Brian Coleman and Mike Freer over the Brent Cross regeneration project.
