When Barry Fairbrother dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty facade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, and teachers at war with their pupils. Barry's seat on the town’s council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen.
Shirley is married to Howard, with whom she has a son called Miles. She is a delicately built woman with the raptor glitter of ambition and aspires to the life of Aubrey and Julia Sweetlove, doing everything she can to emulate them. A shiver of loathing and contempt for everything not Mollison, she hates Barry Fairbrother - and everything he stands for - with a prim but white hot hatred.
Shirley is the Council secretary, who takes the meeting minutes and is in charge of the council website. Supremely proud of her son and granddaughters, she has never liked Samantha, and enjoys winding her up and exposing her failings as a wife and mother.
