Power Cuts

I am convinced that EDF is run by someone who hates me.
I know its my fault I live in a village, but why do my powercuts go on for hours?

2am the lights went out, and as I write they are still out.

At 7am they had not yet dispatched an engineer/eers to deal with the problem. 11 am some folk were re connected, but not the few who live in the houses around Village HQ.

I feel sorry for the call centre staff, but dispair at the unplumbed depths of the incompetance of the company.

Crewe & Nantwich

To quote John Prescott, in May 1997, '' I've been told its unwise to gloat, well s*d it, I'm going to ''

Bank Holiday Alert

So are we to have a hot half term or a cold wet one?

Whatever, I'll bet that the traffic jams will be gone around our schools.

Lets have half term every week

Growing Up

Hats off to the young lad, who at the age of 15 stole a boat, and had to be rescued by the coastguard helicopter, cost £20,000.

At the age of 18 he is now doing a sponsered walk around the Uk to raise £20K for the Dorset air ambulance. He says it is to repay the money he caused to be spent on himself.

I do wish more of our society would take such a mature view. When he gets to Thanet I will be one of the first to donate.

Annual Council

An interesting time was had by all but the public at last thursday's Annual Council.

Some serious political posturing, and some seriously childish rants.

End result, Council set up for the following year, public bemused by the rants of some of the Labour Group, and the image of the council seemingly tarnished by the apparant inability of certain (left of centre) councillors to understand the rules of debate.

But then I would say that being a Conservative Councillor!

It's a new broom for London

Boris has won it,(well, with a little help from his political party and the electorate).

More importantly we should all read Matthew Parris's article in todays Times.

This is a serious message to Mr Brown ( in case he hasn't registered, our Prime Minister) . You have got it wrong!

Perhaps he will have the decency to go for an autumn election, and let us all get it over with, or maybe he will wait until 2010.

If so, expect more of the 'Clunking Fist'. (you have upset me, so I will take more of your money)

Future posts

There are reasons why I shall be standing aside from some of the future comments on this and other posts. It does not mean that I do not have an opinion, just that I will not be in a position to express it.

I did have the option of closing down this blog, but I chose not to do so. In my opinion everyone has a right to express their POV. I will , however, not bring myself into conflict with the law of our country.

Please accept that I do not feel that I have been 'gagged'. I do understand that I may well have an obligation to 'Listen' rather than 'Lead'

Energy Companies

Visited today by a charming young Lady from a certain energy supplier, who told me I should change to her company, as it was soooo much cheaper than the one I use. I asked her to come back in half an hour as I was 'busy'. By the time she returned i was able to show her the print out from 'U' switch, showing her that her company was one of the dearest. Result, said Lady became foul mouthed old bag, accusing me of wasting her time!.

Any of you had one of these visits?

Will be a little busy with Council stuff this next week, but will try to keep up to speed with all you 'Bloggers'
