Localgov – the movie


Last night I sat down at the computer with the express intention of writing an insightful post looking at the rivalries and relationships apparent at each and every level of local government and the differences between these at each level of local government. However, an episode of Game of Thrones and a spousal insistence upon a Big Bang Theory marathon drained me somewhat, so I have instead decided to share a classic game played between myself and colleagues.

It’s a simple one: simply choose a topic (in our case local government) and a theme (today’s is movies) and mash them up; voila! We’d love you to join in too – either leave them in the comments below or tweet using #lgovmovies.

Here are some starters for ten:

  • Eric in Wonderland
  • Batman – The Dark Knight’s annual Returns
  • The Empire Strikes over pensions
  • Mad Max 3 – Beyond the DCLG-dome
  • Dispicable MP
  • Grant Shapps and the Chamber of Secrets
  • Taxpayers Alliance Assemble
  • Rangers of the Lost Park
  • FOI Club
  • The Matrix management system
  • LA Confidential e-mails
  • V for Venn Diagram
  • Democracy Now
  • Lock, Stock and Two Refuse Collectors
  • Development Control Committee 2: Judgement Day
  • The Silence of the Librarians
  • Councillors on a Train
  • The Mayor’s Speech
  • Scrutinising Nemo
  • Building Inspector Gadget
  • The Lion Parking attendant
  • GoodFraudInvestigationOfficers
  • Training and Development Spotting
  • Registrar of the Jedi
  • There Will Be Localism
There might even be prizes for our favourites!  Probably not, but what’s the harm in dreaming?
