What A Weekend

What A Weekend

That’s quite a weekend I’ve just had.  Spent Saturday at Wisbech Castle running the Cafe and it was a busy one.  Then I had to rush home and pack the car with disco equipment as I provided the free disco for the FACET charity fundraising party in March.

Despite the late night working I was up early to help set up Armed Forces Day in Wisbech Market Place and then manning the Air Cadets stall with cadets and other volunteers.

In the afternoon I had the great pleasure to attend the Nine Lives Live show at Wisbech Institute.   It was an incredible, exceptionally, inspirational show.  These guys just get better and better.  I have always enjoyed their shows before, but this time my Son was part of the show with two solo songs and lots of other acting and singing parts and even some tap dancing.  My Wife and I were very proud parents.

Unfortunately, the day ended a little sadly as the Castle CCTV and a local witness saw kids trespassing into the Castle grounds.  They did some minor mischief but nothing major.  We have very clear pictures of them and know exactly who they are.  We will be alerting the Police.

The week ahead is pretty crazy.  Now that I’m a Cabinet Member at FDC its pretty “full on” with meetings almost every day this week alongside my normal jobs.  I’m enjoying it though.  I’ve long felt that Communications (a part of my new portfolio) needed a shake up and that’s precisely what I am trying to do.  Officers have been very helpful so far and I think a lot can be achieved.

Rory Stewart? Really?

Rory Stewart? Really?

Come on.

My fellow Conservatives.

If you think that the person to lead the Conservative party after the disaster that was Mrs May, after the colossal clusterduck (colloquialism) that has been the Brexit situation so far is Rory Stewart you must be off your rocker.

You must be in cloud cuckoo land.

Seriously.

What is the matter with you?

The future of the Conservative party cannot possibly be more of the same.   The next Leader must be a strong Leader, not a soft left apologist who would be as comfortable in the Lib Dems as the Conservatives.

The next Leader MUST be a LEAVER, not a Remainer.

And not just a lip service Leaver.

A full-on, no qualms, no backpedalling, ready to go, relaxed about No Deal if necessary, proper Leaver.

Rory Stewart?  You have GOT to be joking.  You really have.
