Newman and Negrini finally get the Downfall treatment

They say that Tony Newman has had a bunker mentality for years…

Now, six years after giving Mike Fisher the Downfall treatment over “Wadgate”, a loyal reader has run the latest goings-on at Fisher’s Folly through the computer machinery and come up with this unflattering depiction of the events of the past few weeks. Click here to watch the whole mini-movie featuring all your “favourite” characters from the council.

Do you think Newman, the Butler-Scotts or Simon Hall will find it as funny this time round?

    This is hilarious – I spat out a perfectly good mouthful of Carles Priorat Crianza watching it (£9.99 at Lidls, incidentally).
