I must be getting more broad-minded and tolerant or something.Â A few years back I would have gladly filled my ears with molten lead to avoid listening to an entire Celine Dion concert, but the other night that is exactly what I did. ((Watch the concert. Not fill my ears with molten lead))
This evening I was out putting some more election addresses through doors and staggered home full of complaints, which will be familiar to anyone even slightly active in politics.Â I had a bit of an election rant when I got in, although it was wasted on the cat.

It looks like there will be 2,500 new homes built in the strategic gap between Horsham and Crawley, just West of Bewbush.Â The plans have been agreed by both councils, although the Horsham leader, Liz Kitchen has expressed reservations saying she doesn’t want to see the two towns joining up.

I visited our Leicester site today, driving all the way there and back in one day just for a few meetings.Â Not great for the carbon footprint I know, but I have been in the job for a year and so far I have managed to do everything by videoconference and it was about time […]
