Barnet Spring march

Submitted by Matthew on 27 March, 2013 - 9:31

In a measure of Barnet residents’ determination to fight the Tory Council’s “One Barnet” outsourcing programme, more than 300 turned out in a blizzard on 23 March to march from Finchley Central to an inspiring rally at Friern Barnet Community Library.

Our “Barnet Spring” march was the culmination of a week that saw resident Maria Nash bringing an application for Judicial Review of One Barnet in the High Court. During a three-day hearing it was clear that the Council had made no effort to consult residents over the privatisation plan. Their entire defence was bureaucratic — residents should have brought the JR application earlier. The judge gives his verdict after Easter. Whatever he decides, we will continue to fight.
