I do have the authority to share these 33 Handforth Parish Council memes
Not to be dramatic, but I would die for Jackie Weaver
The Handforth Parish Council meeting is the gift that keeps on giving and the memes just get better.
Late last night a compilation of a Handforth Parish Council meeting was uploaded to YouTube and the 18 minute video has gone viral. Everyone is obsessed with one woman, Jackie Weaver, expertly shutting down a council member and removing him from the meeting.
The video was filled with many more iconic moments including the council member on Aled’s iPad getting very angry at Jackie’s decision, Julie interrupting the meeting from her iPad and Sue asking people to apologise to Jackie. In short, it’s become a modern classic that will probably be nominated for an Oscar or at least see Jackie on Strictly with Anton Du Beke.
Aside from the video itself being entertaining, people on Twitter have been creating some quality Handforth Parish Council memes and these are 33 of the funniest:
