I once tried to explain the parliamentary electoral system to a teenage relative in footballing terms. It’s not a perfect analogy, but it’s a lot more perfect than the way we choose our government.
Here’s how we organised a local council election hustings event in 2016. I hope it might inspire you to do the same, wherever you live.
At some stage in the months to come, MPs are going to be asked to vote on legislation to allow the UK to leave the EU. How should they vote? In the case of our two local MPs, I would hope the fight will continue.
I’m sure that some of you may take these predictions for 2016 and somehow make money out of them, because they’re guaranteed*, but nevertheless, on this new year’s day, I’m going to tell you what 2016 has in store for everyone.
Parking at or near Wembley Stadium for gigs is possible, but expensive and slow, so parking at Stanmore is a reasonable alternative. Here’s my experience.
This post is just to round up a few things I’ve found out about parking at the O2 and my own recent experience of event parking there, as most discussions you find through Google date back several years. I hope it’s useful.
I just noticed that the aerial views on Bing Maps are still showing the plot on which our house stands, before it was developed …so I thought I’d record them here for posterity.

I just made a one-page website for Roger Gray, who offers golf lessons in Brentwood. Just a sort of online business card really.

Wow. Just back from the wedding of my God-daughter Mel in Canada. To say she looked pretty would be an understatement. A really nice service and a good send-off for Kevin and Mel in the evening. Of course I wish them all my love and best wishes for the future together. If you enjoyed this post or even found it useful, I’m sure others would appreciate a Tweet or a Facebook share (see left)…
