Actually I got back at the begining of the week but other than a few internal meetings at City Hall I have stayed away from news and politics a bit to do some DIY around the house and spend some time with the kids.
So what's been happening? A plane crash and a hoo-ha about private school fees in Bromley, Europa Gym in Erith still trying to get funding to relocate, Labour desperately trying to make a row over the NHS.
The news which saddened me the most was the escalating death toll in Afghanistan and attempts to smear the name of Gen. Dannatt by the Labour government. Disgusting.
On a lighter note I see that my good friends at the Jewish Lads and Girls Brigade have broken the world record for custard pie throwing!!!!!
