If at first you don’t succeed, get up early

October 31st, 2009 · Comments Off on If at first you don’t succeed, get up early · Politics

Following my failed previous efforts to support the striking Royal Mail workers I took the rather drastic and extreme step of getting up before 6am on a Saturday. This ludicrous tactic worked and I met with the workers who were manning the picket line.  They did mention how several other members of Horsham Labour Party […]

Like a pear cider made from 100% pear

October 31st, 2009 · Comments Off on Like a pear cider made from 100% pear · Life

Had a good evening out in Horsham today, seeing Stewart Lee in his show “If you prefer a milder comedian please ask for one”.   I needed cheering up after a frankly disappointing Chinese meal. Very surprised to find that there was a support act.  Even more surprised to find that it was a German stand-up.  […]

The Capitol – also better than the O2?

August 6th, 2009 · Comments Off on The Capitol – also better than the O2? · Life

The Capitol in Horsham was not mentioned in that list of the 100 best music venues, and this is not about that anyway, but about one way in which many of the country’s bigger venues could learn a lesson from Horsham.

Oh ye of little faith

July 29th, 2009 · Comments Off on Oh ye of little faith · Life

There is something wrong here.  It says: CHURCHES in the Horsham district have suspended part of the Holy Communion ritual due to fears over spreading swine flu. Hmm.   Isn’t the whole point of religion that it is irrational,  so that it is only possible to believe of you make huge leaps of faith?   Maybe the […]

July 13th, 2009 · Comments Off on Pushing for 40% · Politics

On Saturday not only was I up before 10am but I was out and about: in Broadbridge Heath to be precise.  I met up with some colleagues from Horsham Labour Party to go knocking on doors.   For a change we were not asknig anybody to vote for us, but just to support us in one […]

War wounds

May 29th, 2009 · Comments Off on War wounds · Politics

After work today I spent a good 90 minutes delivering my county election leaflets in Roffey.  Well…  actually I went for a spot of late breakfast first, then had a little nap until it was a bit cooler outside. We have been quite ambitious and active in these elections in Horsham, leaving me feeling a […]

MP expenses – the local perspective

May 11th, 2009 · 4 Comments · Politics

The Horsham local paper had an interesting approach to the whole business of MP expenses last week.   While the May 1st edition was full to bursting with letters criticising local MP, Francis Maude, the May 8th edition carried none and had this slightly strange editorial.

Business as usual

May 10th, 2009 · Comments Off on Business as usual · Politics

Undeterred by all the doom and gloom, we had a busy weekend in Horsham, delivering European election material, and we are all pleased with our efforts. We took a large pile of newspapers and worried that we were being over-ambitious, but with delivering sessions on Saturday morning, Saturday afternoon and Sunday afternoon we got through […]
