This morning my chilled out weekend has been interrupted by the sound of Labours Election leaflet coming through the letterbox.
Still for me it has a bit of every thing, a poster to stick in the window should I wish, photos of Clive Hart (newly appointed Labour Supremo) and Iris Johnson standing in front of various things like Northdown House a tree and even some bollards, what else, well, you have list of Tory waste in Kent which they calculate at 24 million which I don’t wish to contest but there are some items missing from the list like the 6 million spent on media advertising, also the likely spend of £350,000 sending 50+ to a folk life festival in Washington in 2007.
One final note worthy, section of the leaflet is the rather seemingly, over the top “Local Freedom Fighters” assertion which, once you consider that it refers to concessions for travel, may seem trivial, to those of us with access to our own vehicles but for a pensioner it must be a real bonus.
On the subject of freedom, a subject I’d like addressed, is the many millions of pounds of advertising and PR, Conservatives have agreed to, in running Kent council, I’m sure its not the intention or even happens but imagine your a local media firm and you have news which is not entirely complementary to the council and at the same time your bidding for a lucrative contract to advertise for one of the councils services like the pointless Healthwatch.
Anyway I shall now await a leaflet from Chris Wells & Michael Jarvis.
Finally those with nothing to do, you have till Thursday to hand in your nomination papers and stand in the County Council elections, I must say I’m disappointed that their has been no public uprising demanding I stand myself and confront those spend thrift blighters in Maidstone.
