It appears that Crawley is now a UKIP-free zone, as our only UKIP councillor resigned on Friday. To be honest, it doesn’t sound like it will make a big difference as he was rarely spotted in the town hall. I suppose he should be congratulated on doing the right thing, eventually.

I have been looking at the UKIP leaflet – a single glossy A4 sheet folded in half. The only topics or policies mentioned are withdrawal from the EU and immigration. The candidate’s biography states that his career has been sales and marketing. I hope he does a better job of selling his automotive parts than […]
So. Europe won the Ryder cup. I am not a big fan of golf. I got a set of clubs for Christmas several years ago and haven’t used them yet except to take a couple off to the pitch & Putt course. But its good to see Europe competing as a team. Because of the […]
