More Lidl not cleaning up

It seems that we are not the only ones who have lost patience with Lidl!

I don’t know if ever I told you that my first ever job was as a junior-trainee-photocopying-kid in the library of the Labour Party. It doesn’t have one now of course but in those days (the mid-eighties) it was still quite a big affair. Anyway, I still have a great affection for the Dewey System and musty books.

This morning I spent time at the library in West Bromwich as part of the largest coffee morning in the world. We had a hoot. Firstly, we were entertained by Alfie, one of our famous Black Country poets.

Then I met Richard Neath. Talented man. He was made redundant last November and has since completed his first novel and published it himself. I read the first few chapters whilst in the library and can recommend it.

Ideal government

Former blogger Jackie D. emails to point me in the direction of a new e-government blog, Ideal Government. Love the mastehead.

Boris Johnson – blogger

Political blogging will never be the same again as the most charming opponent an MP could want has got himself a blog.
