Surviving "Get Loaded" and Hibs have another goalkeeping calamity!!!


I spent yesterday recovering from working behind the Bar at the Workers Beer Company at the Get Loaded Festival in Clapham Common!!
In truth I enjoyed it, the weather was good, the young people were friendly and enjoying the day and the 6 hours went by quickly. Our knees were a bit stiff as we walked around afterwards and had a staff beer or two!!
I did learn a few things like the fact that every young person seems to drink Vodka and Red Bull which cant be good for you!!!!
Anyway it was a really good way to make lots of money for the Camberwell and Peckham Constituency Labour Party over a weekend, probably over £500!, and it was good experience! I actually enjoyed a lot of the music as well!!!

This is the last week of relative freedom and Lecturers and soon students return tio the University and the Council starts up again ! I have a GLA Fund Raising Dinner with Ken, Val and Harriet next week and the Southwark labour Conference coming up both of which I am looking forward to!!
Hibs struggled again at home going 3-1 down and then having to scrap out a 3-3 draw against a good Aberdeen side!! As usual an ex-Hibs player, Craig Brewster (pictured) did the damage with 2 goals!
To make matters worse our saviour of a Goalkeeper, Ma-Kalamby, had a knightmare missing 2 crosses for 2 of the goals but probably has enough self confidence to get over it! dean sheils also looked good and scored a goal so it was not all bad news. Rumours are Captain Rob Jones will go to Leeds this week and Hibs prepare to defend CIS Cup with first round match this week against Queen of the South!
