Reports are coming in of spontaneous street parties spreading across Barnet today. It seems that these unprecedented scenes of wild celebration were prompted by this correction made in today's London Daily News:
One Totteridge-based reveller said:
Contrary to an earlier report Cllr Brian Coleman the serving Mayor of Barnet said:
"I do not intend to stand for leader of the council, either now or in the future".
"I am pleased as punch. Now Coleman, give the people of Barnet what they really want - go off and haunt someone else and stop rattling your [Mayoral] chains around here."
