Camberwell Branch Labour Party Barbeque, Campaigning in Cathedral Ward, Hibs beat second premiership team in a week and Whittaker on his way to Prem!!

Last Thursday the Camberwell Branch Labour Party had it's Summer Barbeque and thanks to Cleo for being such an excellent host and for dishing up the strongest punch that I have ever tasted!! A lovely hint of pinneaple followed up by a very big hit of rum!! Fantastic!!!
Some of the people in the pics above have already been at the punch for a bit too long!! We have a really active vibrant party in Camberwell and it is a real honour and pleasure to be part of the team with them!!!
On Saturday I, along with around 40 others, leafletted Cathedral Ward for our friend and comrade Danny McCarthy. I went out with Sandra Rhule and my past fellow councillor Anne Worsley.
On route we bumped in to the Mayor and Mace Bearer Chris at a Country fair at South Bank University. Chris rang the bell when testing his own strength and was not attempting to knock the Mayor into the ground as the picture might suggest!!

Sandra, Anne and I leafletted the Nelson's Square Estates and here we are outside Rowland Hill House.

Hibs beat Middlesborough 1-0 in the last few minutes of a close game at Easter Road on Saturday, making an impressive Premiership double in 4 days after a 3-0 midweek victory over Bolton Wanderers! Ross Campbell scored almost in added time but Fillippe Morais was apparently the star performer so he looks like a very good buy! Also another clean sheet for Ms-Kalamby bu the real test a week on Monday with the opening league game against Hearts at Tynecastle. Apparently they played well in their 3-1 defeat to Barcelona so it is a tough start!!
The other big story today is that Blackburn, Middelsborough and Rangers are after Steven Whittaker for £1.5 to £1.8M, not surprising after his brilliant season!! Hope he goes to the Premiership and does not become another Old Firm has been!! Rumours are that, despite scoring in almost every game that he played for Celtic last season, Riordan is to be off-loaded to an English Championship side, surprise surprise!!
