I think it’s fair to say Wandsworth’s poor Ofsted report has been a big shock for many, including me.
“Won’t somebody think of the children?” sums up a large part of the Conservative side of the debate at last night’s council meeting.
Imagine having organised the largest campaign in recent (and no-so-recent) memory in Wandsworth and, at the end, you attend the relevant council committee: the opportunity for you to have your say.
One issue that has troubled me enormously during the build-up to the council’s Formula E decision has been the attitude towards health and safety and risk assessment.
The campaign for Wandsworth to accept ten refugees seems woefully inadequate in the light of the scale of the refugee crisis.
Reporting, again, a pothole on Kingsley Street for repair made me realise what austerity actually means for most people: and it’s not that much.
I’m just about old enough to vaguely remember pundits who made a living from Kremlinology and divining some meaning from the scraps of information that escaped Red Square.
