The 15 most iconic quotes from THAT viral Jackie Weaver parish meeting video

James Fenton

Jackie Weaver’s Handforth Parish Council meeting is the tonic everybody needed today and if you haven’t seen it yet, you’re missing out.

The chaotic Zoom meeting has gone mega-viral and has made a household name of Jackie Weaver, the chief officer of the Cheshire Association of Local Councils.

Jackie’s name has been trending on Twitter all day and she’s appeared on radio and TV shows across the water. But what’s all the fuss about? Well, the clip basically revolves around an argument over the election of a new parish chairman and let’s just say not everyone is on the same page.

You can watch the notorious Jackie Weaver video below but if you haven’t got time for that, we’ve picked out some of our favourite quotes from the most famous parish council meeting in the world underneath…

“You can’t!”

Think you’ll find she can, Aled’s iPad.

“You have no authority here Jackie Weaver, no authority at all!”

We’ll see about that.

“She’s kicked him out”…

She has.


One half of Aled’s iPad isn’t backing down.

“I take charge!”

A man who knows what he wants.

“Read the standing orders! READ THEM AND UNDERSTAND THEM!!”

Things are getting heated.

*gasp* “Dear me”…

The unseen David Pincombe is taken aback.

“Councillor Burkhill, we’ve been through this”

Ya hear that, Councillor Burkhill?

“You don’t know what you’re talking about”

Councillor Burkhill hits back.

*John Smith’s cackle*

He liked that one, did John.

“She’s kicked Barry out so I’m leaving”

Aled’s iPad man has had enough.



“We’re trying to have a teams meeting, you fool!”

Cracks are appearing in Team Aled’s iPad

“Coming from you from Birkenhead, that sounds good”…

The SASS just went up a notch.

“Welcome to Handforth”…

A more composed John Smith sums up the whole debacle.
