    Following on from the last photo, it would be interesting if Rachel were to defect to the Greens. They would then have 2 councillors and legally constitute a "Group" with the right to admin support and other privileges.

    I doubt Labour would want that though - always better to have your dissent inside the tent pissing out as it were.

    I had Jim Dickson knocking on my door last night asking for votes, the cheeky bugger. I wish I had this at hand. And a broom.

    ViolentPanda Hardly getting over it.

    We had two of our local councillors, plus two Labour Party activists a-knocking at the weekend. When I said "not interested", they asked "aren't you going to vote, then?", to which I replied "of course, but not for you".

    Tricky Skills I demand tea - NOW!

    I was knocked up as well by a Labour door stepper.

    They asked if they could rely upon my vote.

    I explained that it would be a little awkward, seeing as though the local Progress lot kicked me out of the party :p

    I hope that they looked suitably embarrassed! :D

    I'm not sure it was in the paper version - the Guardian and the Observer have a lot of articles which are web-only.

    The journalist (Peter Walker) lives in Crystal Palace and is good on local issues.

    If Alex Bigham was PR consultant for Ark Academies is this the application of his professional work-style to council matters?

    As for Rezina - she seems to be saying defending libraries is a race issue (i.e. white people promoting their own selfish ends) the same white people as she considers disrespected a dead councillor. This is deluded and paranoid thinking. I believe they call it "shroud waving"

    Meanwhile, on a lighter note, for anyone under 90 who's interested Monty Python had a sketch on rescuing put-downs by turning them into compliments:

    Anyone going to this?
    I would go with a couple of bottles to swig, but don't want to upset the vicar.
    Be interesting to see if libraries (and Central Hill regeneration) come up.

    Thank you for posting. Otherwise wouldn't have known.

    I also welcome the opportunity of viewing the inside of St Saviour's Church without the risk of being cajoled into a men's prayer meeting (it being of the Evangelical persuasion).

    I know it as a polling station. In fact come to think of it, I'll be in there voting on the day after the abovementioned exhibition.
