Overheard at the pool [Jan. 15th, 2016|01:03 pm]

Navigating my way past / round / through the group of ladies who chat this morning, I heard a well-modulated voice say "That dreadful man from the Council - got an MBE or something - ought to be shot!"

I think I was intended to hear; she checked later in the changing area, to make sure I'd got the message.

I'm so glad you asked: here's the Mayor's bodyguard.

But why would she care that you heard? I don't understand.

durham_rambler spends a lot of time opposing the Council; I suspect I am just a conduit for passing a message to him! (But I'm only guessing).

I've heard Henig speak and I thought he was rather impressive, actually.

What did you hear him speaking about?

I'm very unhappy with much of the running of the Council, and tend to hold him responsible for it. There's not much about the honours system that surprises me, but I'm mildly surprosed to see the shambles of the County Durham Plan rewarded in this way, for example...

Not the material I would have expected! It would be interesting to see how it works - but Hastings is a long way away, and the Council has just confirmed its decision to close Durham's art gallery...
