Not quite 'T' in the park!

At the MJ dinner on Park Lane tonight, one of those events that everybody who is anybody is at (well in local government anyway). Andrew Marr is the presenter for the evening and the sarcasm is cutting as the reshuffle is well and truly underway.

Blood on the floor!

Its the Scottish AGM of APSE today at Perth Racecourse and with all the changes in Scottish Local Government at the recent elections we know its going to be an unpredictable outcome. It makes a change from the usual cries of unopposed, as we have up to 3 nominations in some of the categories for election as chairs.
