So long, and thanks for all the fish.

Don’t Call Me Dave
is now taking an extended break from writing this blog. As regular readers will know, he is currently studying with the Open University and has two assignments to complete before the end of April.

He has also been commissioned to write two magazine articles for publication later this year, in addition to his real job of trying to keep the Treasury afloat.

Barnet’s political scene is well represented in cyberspace, as demonstrated by the blog roll opposite, covering the left wing, the right wing and the Kentucky Fried Chicken wing!

Sadly, the once renowned Statler & Waldorf blog is no more. DCMD hears that Statler is in rehab after binging on cheap supermarket sherry whilst Waldorf is currently sojourning at the Barnet Rest Home for the Bewildered after a rather distressing experience walking his dog at Scratchwood.

DCMD is grateful to his readers for all their loyal support, but special thanks must go to Cllrs Mike Freer, Lynne Hillan, Brian Coleman and Andreas Tambourides, without whom this blog would not have been necessary possible.

Dear DCMD,

Statler and I are distressed that you are taking a short break from blogging at such a crucial time.

We feel it is important that we correct the record; although in so doing we are not sure how long this comment will stand for.

Just before Christmas we received a letter from the Henson Corporation following a complaint made by a Mr Tambourine and Mrs Howard. Shortly afterwards we were served by a Super Injunction (who's existence is secret) instructing us take down the blog and refrain from, as they put it, impersonating muppets.

Foolishly Statler decided to ignore this and put up a weblog post with a copy of the injuction.

It wasn't long before we were both arrested and we are now serving a 6 month jail sentence and £10,000 fine for contempt of court.

We have broken into the Prison Governor's office to type this message on his computer.

Gotta dash, DCDM you whippersnapper, come back soon...

With Fuzzy Hugs,
