Conservatives took a Labour seat

Let's not get brainwashed by some media who desperately spreading false news that Labour is winning in all sorts of ways and that they are the next government. They are not. It is perfectly explained by this latest Conservative win in Sherbourne where Jackie Gardiner took a Labour seat with a comfortable majority.

Meetings

I agree with Councillor Shafi Ahmed, when he said during the Standards Advisory Committee tonight, that he prefers in person meetings as people can concentrate better. This morning I went to a half-half meeting, expertly delivered by THCVS. The room was well equipped but there was no reception for data for those who were not… Continue reading Meetings

The sky was mourning over Buckingham Palace today

We were privileged to be given access to the funeral route along The Mall and around Buckingham Palace. I feel almost bad for smiling on such a sombre occasion.

Royalty

My main activity at present is to follow the National Proclamations in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and this week in my own borough. King Charles III makes all municipal regions of the country and commonwealth swear allegiance very systematically, like a contractual obligation for states. They all - including Lutfur Rahman's administration - pledge… Continue reading Royalty

Prime Minister’s tribute

A speech well worth remembering and reproducing, as it will become a corner stone of all speeches, and an era that has now come to an end and is the new beginning of forward-thinking Britons and the world. Liz Truss has managed to interweave her personal experience with national events, as you do as Prime… Continue reading Prime Minister’s tribute
