100 days of change starts with stickers!!!! and... Hibs make it to Hampden!!!!!

Tory Deputy Leader Kim Humphries kicked off his "100 days of change" with the brilliant idea of stickers on jobs for repair!!!! how long did that idea take ? Can't wait for the other 99!!!!!! no doubt it will all be declared a staggering success when it ends and tenants will get back to putting up with the poor service that they are used to in a Department without a Director, without a clear structure, with half it's offices closed and a frustrating Call Centre all that tenants are left to deal with!! No doubt they will come up with more brilliant ideas just before the next election? Even the Southwark News Editorial, very supportive of the regime since May, found it difficult not to sound ironic and cynical!

On to brighter things I watched Hibs beat St. Johnstone 3-1 after Extra Time in the CIS Cup Semi Finasl at Tynecastle. They struggled after the early goal and in truth were lucky to make it to extra time but always looked like winning after that. Tynecastle looked grim as ever and my dad's report back was pretty bad!

The Final is on March 18th and I will be there to hopefully watch Hibs pick up the Cup as i saw them do in 1972 and 1991 but fail to do on another 6 occasions!!!! Killie are a bit of a bogey team playing very physical football so it is not a foregone conclusion!!!
