CSR Review, Campaigning, Cambridge House, Banksy and Hibs have a new Manager!!

And so the largest Public Spending cuts since the early Thatcherite Years are upon us!!!
Cuts of £81 Billion and for Southwark Council £90M cuts over the next 4 years, more than 30% of our total Budget from Government!!!
Probably the most nauseating element of the whole speech was the cheering from the Tories and Lib Dems, images which i know will come back to haunt them!!
Good to see the Telegraph today report a lead for Labour for the first time in 4 years and surely that will increase as the real impact of these cuts become clear to the electorate!!
Great Mobile Surgery in Newington Ward on Saturday with Patrick and Neil and I plan to spend a fair bit of time in that ward supporting them in the future as I do Clare in Chaucer!!!
Today I had a Tour around the Cambridge House building works which will radically transform the building and enable Cambridge House to grow as an organisation even in these very troubled times!!
Spotted the Bermondsey Banksy over the weekend already protected by a plastic screen, very nice it is too!!!
Hibs have Colin Calderwood as their new Manger and even after a defeat at Aberdeen on Saturday a bit of optimism in the camp for the future!!!

I'm as worried about who is representing my ward as about the cuts. A huge development has been given outline planning permission for my ward without one shred of consultation with the public. My three ward councilors are all on the planning committee and cannot speak to my community about this or give us any advice about what we can do, if anything. My community is left with no representation whatsoever. Do we have no right to any representation at all?

This development on top of another one already approved for our ward - solely for our ward - plus the development we've already had is building on almost every bit of accessible green space we have. I'm told they even want our football field.How can it be democratic that we have no one to advise or represent us?
