Great Camberwell Quiz Night and Cormac stands in Riverside Ward. Come on Scotland!!!!!!!!

The Camberwell Labour Party held a very successful Quiz Night on Wednesday in the St. Giles Crypt (with me as Quiz Master!) and we raised over £300 pounds which was a terrific result. We were grateful to Harriet for dropping in and donating a prize along with her news about appearing in Strictly Come Dancing, although we were assurred not as a contestant!!! We will certainly be doing this again!!!!

On the Council front it is as hectic as ever in the run up to Christmas and as if that is not enough we have a By-Election to fight in Riverside Ward due to Paul Baichoo standing down!! Cormac Hollingsworth ( fellow Blogger with link on the right!)is our excellent candidate with a strong local record as opposed to the Simon Hughes Bag Carrier ( how many does he need to carry his bag???)standing for the Lib Dems who has been travelling around trying to pick up a seat! We all recall her standing for Brunswick Park Ward promising the full redevelopment of Camberwell Leisure Centre dont we?????

It is make or break for Scotland as they need to beat World Champions Italy on Saturday at Hampden Park to qualify for Euro 2008 and a defeat would put Italy out! Other options are possible if we draw but in reality a win is a must for us!!!
Another nervous afternoon beckons for yours truly and hoping for more images like the former picture below than the latter????

It would be a real achievement to qualify from a group with both World Cup Finalists so COME ON SCOTLAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On the Hibs front Hibs Boss John Collins is using the domestic break to eye up possible new players to sign in the January window. Francophile John is in France again looking but one home player strongly and consistently tipped to join is Kilmarnock Defender and self proclaimed Hibs Supporter Colin Nish!! sounds like good news to me!!! I hope that John is luckier than last time when he took a mid season trip to france tio look for players and returned to a full scale players revolt!!!!!
