Joanna Lumley

Am I the only one who feels that Joanna Lumley and her friend Peter Carol are milking this Ghurka matter a step too far?

Whilst I might be expected to support anything that is uncomfortable for Gordon Brown, I do feel that the right result was achieved, (ie fair treatment for those who fight for this Country). We are now on to the 'Lets get Joanna Lumley elected as a Liberal Democrat' campaign. I cannot help feeling the Ghurka's plight has been hijacked by a political wannabe.

Full Council

Last night was not the best of Council Meetings I have seen, but would say in response to Cllr Harrison, I think his group came over as a 'rehearsed' demonstration more than any other. However, it was nice to see 'cross' party agreement for the major issues.

Dartford River Crossing

So the power cut that has affected Dartford has highlighted a statement made by the Minister of Transport.

When approving the increase in charges for using the Dartford Crossing it was said the hike was to 'reduce congestion'.

The power cut caused charges to be suspended, result........no congestion. at about 5pm charges were reintroduced...........result congestion. I rest my case.

I'm Back............

OK, that's harvest sorted for another year, so now have time to resume the 'Blog'

Sorry to disappoint the 'creature of the night' who cannot spell 'drivel'.

Time now to trawl the local papers and the nationals for some interesting threads, I fear that may take some time.
