After all the build-up to the Local Elections, I've felt that annual limbo and loss of urgent purpose common to many politicians. It is more pronounced this year as Reading Borough Council is in no overall control. Nobody knows who will form the new administration, nor what job each councillor will have.

Bizarrely the town's future lies in the hands of Cllr White who has 1 year's experience on the Council and his newly elected colleague Cllr Eastwood.

I am happiest when busy, so in this lull I've decided to start my blog. I'll use it to pass on news and my own views, as well as specific information about my council roles and Thames Ward, which I represent.
