THE Prees clerk who found national fame because of a viral parish council meeting has now gone international – thanks to Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber.

The composer has written a song about the Handforth Parish Council meeting zoom video, which was brought to national attention via social media last week.

Lord Lloyd Webber has said his friends in the US think he is “mad” after he created a song about Jackie which he released on his Instagram, about the chief officer of the Cheshire Association of Local Councils.

And he told Good Morning Britain: “When you’re bored, you have to think of things.”

He said of the parish council meeting: “It’s sort of operatic.”

The composer plays the piano and Carrie Hope Fletcher sings, with the lyrics of the new song written by Don Black.

“It was just a laugh, I was doing nothing on a Sunday afternoon,” Lord Lloyd-Webber told the ITV show.

“At the moment. the Americans think I’m stark raving mad because they heard this song. They are saying ‘Who on earth is Jackie Weaver?'”

A friend from New York called “last night and woke me up and said ‘Who is Jackie Weaver?’ and I said ‘Well, it’s a very British thing’.”

He joked of the prospect of turning the song into a West End musical: “You never know! People said Eva Peron (Evita) was a bad idea.”

Weaver became an overnight internet sensation after she kicked Handforth Parish Council chairman Brian Tolver off the Zoom call after he told her to “stop talking”.
