Hibs went down 1-0 to Rangers at Ibrox on Saturday to a spectacular overhead kick from Kris Boyd. We had a bit of criticism in the press for playing so defensively which is not our usual style but I really dont know what they expect when palying away to a team with players each one virtually more that the value of the entire Hibs team (except Fletcher!) put together.
For the first time in ages I wont be able to catch a Hibs matches they have 3 matches away from home on the trot!! Really unfair to returning ex pats like me!! I wonder if Celtic or Rangers would ever be timetabled for 3 away matches over the Christmas/New Year Holidays? Somehow I think not!!

It is part of their citizenship studies and they certainly asked all the right questions! I really enjoyed it and hope to do more in the future! The image is of the new school and how it will look by 2010.
Tomorrow I am attending the Southwark Violent Crime Summit with some of the Key players so that should be interesting to see what arises and develops for the broader Community Summit in January!
The rest of the past week has been Christmas Dinners and parties at London Met and the Labour Group and of course another visit to the Winter Wonderland Festival in Hyde Park with Clair, Shauna, Sophie and Charlie!!
Hibs had another comfortable home win on Saturday beating Hamilton Accies 2-0 and look like they are on a good run of form with confidence high! Rumours abound about Fletcher and even Dean Sheils going in the January window but at the moment all is looking good and the 3rd place spot is a real possibility this season!!

Burgess, Peckham Rye and Camberwell Green Park, Winter Wonderland and Hibs get Hearts in the Scottish Cup!
I hope that rumours are true in that Burgess Park is the front runner for the £2M Mayor's award as it will really make a difference to the whole area!
I have also been encouraging everyone to vote for Camberwell Green for one of the smaller £400,000 awards so it would be fantastic if both came in so here's hoping!!
I took Shauna to the Winter Wonderland Festival at Hyde Park on Saturday and a good (but expensive!) time was had by all!!
My big mistake was taking her to Hamleys afterwards!!! Oh my Lord that was not fun!!!
It was a good way to kick off the Christmas season and the lunches and parties kick off with the Labour Group Dinner at Caravaggio's next Monday!
Hibs got a last minute equaliser against Falkirk away at the weekend but the big news is that we have drawn Hearts in the first Round proper of the Scottish Cup !
