Hopefully we will rectify this by getting some statements from the candidates for the Havering and Redbridge constituency for this blog prior to the Hustings at our AGM on April 4th.
Meanwhile the local Conservatives were out in force in Barkingside last Saturday accompanied by the present incumbent presumably because the polls have turned in Ken’s favour after being 8 points behind last summer.
Locally the Labour Party have been very active for some months on #labourdoorstep but there is a twitter campaign for a hashtag #getoffmydoorstep [that’s the polite version].
Talking of racetracks, here’s a video created by Jim Jepps for the Big Smoke website on road safety: enjoy the soundtrack …
There was a comment recently, which I can’t find now, “that our roads are built for cars not people”. Wrong! Most of London’s road network was built before we had cars, and even the expansion of new estates like Barkingside and Clayhall in the 1930s was when very few people had cars. The problem is that our roads were NOT built for cars and we have had to make the best of it.
