However, she realized she was the target of screaming abuse and procedural rants and urged residents of the village of Cheshire in Handforth to post the video online. It has been viewed over 3 million times. Yesterday, Ms. Weaver, CEO of the Cheshire Local Assembly Association, admitted that she was “surprised” by her newly discovered fame. She states: “99% of council meetings are not like that. They are often less exciting than we wanted.”
She admitted that she didn’t know who was actually in charge of the meeting, but said that “the local council has elements of bullying and bad behavior.”
Ms. Weaver explained her presence at the December meeting and told the councilor: “I am providing support to the Handforth Parish Council in conducting the meeting tonight.”
However, President Brian Tolber was excited about her presence and yelled, “There is no authority here, Jackie Weaver! No authority at all!” However, Ms. Weaver responded by activating him from a zoom call.
Then, Aled Brewerton was confused as the Vice-Chairman tried to direct the meeting, shouting “Read, read and understand the automatic transfer.”
However, he was also sent off. When John Smith was finally elected chairman and the meeting began, he was fed up and said, “Welcome to Handforth.”
Ms. Weaver replied, “If it’s not lively, there’s nothing.”
“Not only did I prevent the meeting from taking place, but two other councilors were also banished, a horrific attack on their democratic rights,” Mr. Tolber said in a statement.
After the clip was talked about, TV presenter Richard Osman tweeted, “I’m busy writing Jackie Weaver in a novel for the murder club next Thursday.”
