Still no reason, but I finally get to go to Sports Day

In the mean time to all this, I stand as a Conservative Councillor here in Frimley Green, Surrey; and get elected.  I go back to court to demand that I be able to go to Sydney’s school events, and Social Services demands that I must not have any contact with her.  They fail to produce even remotest whiff of evidence to suggest I am unsuitable, and then the judge finds out that I am an elected member of Her Majesty’s Government, and starts to dig in a bit about this supposed threat I pose.  Surprisingly, it is found that I bear no threat to Sydney, and that social Services has been wrong about everything.  Does anyone care?  Well, you already know the answer to that one…  But, in May, I get to go to Sports Day, yeah!!!

I was put forward to stand by some marginal people in  the Conservative Party, and when I went to the selection interview, they were less than enthusiastic about this dual national loud mouthed American on their doorstep.  So, they said fine, you want to stand?  Then go stand in Frimley Green where we’ve not won in 24 years and the closest we’ve ever come was losing by 356 votes in the previous election…  So, I did, and the rest is history, I won by 128 votes, and now they have me for 4 years.  Although the History was almost very brief.  Sydney’s mother Meg and her buddy Michele go to one of the County Councillors with a large dossier of dirt they’d prepared, that he took straight to the party and election commission.  Unfortunately for them, quite a bit of it was from paginated bundles from the Children’s hearings.  You see, those are sealed, and not for distribution to anyone, much less the press.  Of course the lawyers who received the stuff packed it up and sent it back.  And that of course was that…

But the weirdest part was that running for office here, as well as anywhere else is a pretty public affair, didn’t she notice???  You would have thought…

Want to know about the Surrey heath Plan?

Surrey Heath Borough Council has announced a string of public exhibitions where people can examine its recent site allocations plan, which sets out in detail a long-term vision for the borough through to 2028. The council is beginning the process of deciding where new sites for housing, employment, retail, transport and green spaces should be. Around 340 pockets of land across the borough have been raised as potential sites for allocation.

Residents and businesses are invited to study the plans in greater detail at any one of seven public exhibitions to be held between Tuesday (April 23) and May 15. Visitors will be able to view the potential sites, discuss any views or concerns they have with members of the council’s planning team and leave their comments. The majority of exhibitions will be open until 8pm, which the council hopes will give as many people as possible the chance to have their say.

Councillor Keith Bush, portfolio holder for planning, said: “These exhibitions are an important opportunity for people to have their say on the future of the area they live in. We want to hear from as many people as possible, including local residents and businesses on what they think of the sites suggested.”

The first exhibition will take place at St John’s Link, Church Road, Windlesham, on Tuesday, and is followed on Friday April 26 by one at Brook Church Hall, The Square, Bagshot. Camberley’s Adult Education Centre in France Hill Drive will host an exhibition on Monday April 29 before the proposals go on display at the Chobham Parish Pavilion Recreation Ground, in Station Road. There will be a display on May 11 at Frimley Community Centre, Balmoral Drive, while people in Frimley Green, Mytchett and Deepcut can view the plans at the Frimley Green Methodist Church Hall on May 13. The consultation concludes at the West End Sports Pavilion, Benner Lane, on May 15.

All exhibitions take place between 12.30pm and 8pm, with the exception of the one in Frimley, which will be between 10am and 2.30pm.”

Become a Mo Bro Now…

It’s November 1st, the time to Mo is now.  During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces in the UK and around the world.  The aim of which is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health,  specifically prostate cancer and testicular cancer.

Once registered at movember.com each Mo Bro must begin the 1st of Movember with a clean shaven face. For the entire month each Mo Bro must  grow and groom a moustache. There is to be no joining of the mo to the sideburns (that’s considered a beard), there’s to be no joining of the handlebars to the chin (that’s considered a goatee) and each Mo Bro must  conduct himself like a true gentleman.
