If you're going to do a no-frills government at least do it somewhere that had frills in the first place. Taking the frills out of Barnet is like taking the charisma out of Milton Keynes.I know both places fairly well and, though it might sound disloyal, from where I sit she makes a strong point.
There was a fashion - and almost certainly still is - for companies, NGOs, boroughs, etc, to give themselves, alongside a logo designed at absurd expense, a tagline consisting of the present participle of a verb (grammar is not my strong point, I should say) and some sort of positive sentiment. I can't off the top of my head think of any examples (although I used to collect particularly absurd ones) and I could never work out what one would call what I'm talking about so I can't even Google it, but if I say that Barnet Tories could henceforth call themselves (though they wouldn't) "Barnet Tories - taking the frills out of Barnet", you would know what I mean.
