Election Day -74: Cash in the Attic

with one comment

Countdown to Election Day
It’s been so long since I blogged that I’d almost forgotten my log-in details. There always seems to be something more important and urgent to do as a PPC still trying to earn a crust and carry on a normal life. There probably is. But now, and for the next 74 days, because let’s face it, May 6th is 99% certain the day of the general election, I’m going to try and blog every day, however long or short it is. There’s certainly plenty to talk about.

Cash in the Attic
The drama in our local Tory party has drawn all eyes to Westminster North – Joanne Cash is all over the Sundays again, over a week since the resignation-not. They say any publicity is good publicity, and her Twitter followers have grown exponentially, but what do the voters think about it? The local papers here are certainly giving her a rough ride – if that translates into voting intentions, it’s bad news for JC. I think Joanne is well-meaning and sincere – just in the wrong party!

Jubilee Line
News out on Friday from tfl indicates that there’ll now be suspensions for work over the weekend until OCTOBER. Just where is the accountability here? It keeps going back and back, hurting local economies, affecting peoples’ livelihoods and all we can do is wait. A mole (appropriate for one working underground) told me some interesting stuff about what goes on (or doesn’t) down in the tube station at midnight, but he doesn’t want to put it on the record, so we’ll have to leave it at that.

Tomorrow – the St John’s Wood Barracks development – it ain’t over yet!
