It's All White on the Night

Local desk flying Tory Squadron Leader Willis has been caught praising Ian Smith the apartheid ruler of Rhodesia/Zimbabwe on Political Betting.

Is he for the high jump? Is he hell. You'd have to expel over half the Tory party if holding such views were beyond the pale.

Do as I say...

The council's internal recycling is completely hypocritical.

Residents have to separate waste, yet other than 'clean' paper waste, no recycling is done internally.

Council employees regularly use street recycling facilities, yet any businesses caught doing so will be fined.

And it is official council policy for residents to double bag food waste to avoid maggots. How this can co-exist with a policy to reduce carrier bags is anyone’s guess.

Pizza the Action

The buildings behind my house have been converted illegally into dwellings.

Now my "neighbours" are getting more brazen... on Monday they ordered a takeaway pizza and had it delivered through the locked gates! Of course, with the dark evenings it’s easier to see them as they need to use torches.

No action from the council as yet.

She was a little too late if she was trying to stop people finding out about it from muckspReading... approximately 6 hours too late! I had a lot of visitors from RBC in the morning!

I want to let you know, before you read it on 'Muckspreading' or hear on the grapevine, that I was recently interviewed for the Chief Executive post at Cambridgeshire County Council. I was not successful, but a political row has blown up in Cambridgeshire about the appointments process, and although the row had nothing to do with me, my name has come into the public arena.

As this information is now in the public domain, please do not feel the need to treat it confidentially.

Lie of the Land

The council have replied to a freedom of information request by a friend by sending documents referring to her by her married name. The documents were dated 2005 when she wasn’t married.

If the council is going to lie, they should at least try to do it a little more convincingly!

Sending the Issue to Bed

It normally takes me two weeks of weekend and evening work to write my fanzine pages, so imagine my surprise when on Saturday evening I got an email "reminding" me of the Tuesday morning deadline at the printers! Even worse, I'd scheduled a visit to my Mum's on Sunday.

To cut a long story short, 16 pages written in 16 hours. A new record!
