Straw poll - Whetstone Waitrose: er...?

Not quite the detail I was looking for, but the people running the stall outside Whetstone Waitrose to inform the public about Barnet council's 'Future Shape' deliberations ('We do it, because Barnet council won't') said 'the stall went very well'. I take that to mean that in Whetstone, just as I have been finding in Burnt Oak, there is NO PUBLIC APPETITE FOR PRIVATISATION.

I walked around Whetstone a little bit on Sunday looking for places to leaflet about the lobby on Tuesday 3rd December (6pm rally, 7pm attend public meeting of the Council Cabinet). Barnet House, where the rally and meeting will take place, is a bleak spot, built on stilts with a chill wind whistling underneath. We shall have to wrap up warm for our lobby and come with chants prepared to keep our spirits up.
