I miss blogging

Afternoon everyone! I know I’ve disappeared from the blogosphere but I blame Twitter entirely for that. Now that I’m tweeting, I just don’t have time to blog as well. I knew I should have stayed away…

Anyway, if you look on the right hand side of this page, you’ll see my Twitter feed popping up occasionally (thanks as always Oli)

It’s been a busy month …..

On local issues – we had a great Regent’s Park Area Forum where we discussed the effects of climate change.

I’ve been campaigning on tube closures and you can see my letter to the Camden New Journal here.

(You might have to scroll down a bit)

We’ve had an amazing victory with the Albany Street Post Office reopening in Regent’s Park. You can see Cllr Theo Blackwell’s blog about it here.

I’m extremely proud of the Crown Estate Residents’ Association for their inexhaustible campaign on saving their homes. They’ve had coverage in national papers including the Guardian.

The Ham&High newspaper published my letter on the Crown Estate sell-offs but it isn’t online so here’s the text –

Dear Editor

Bravo to the Residents’ Association and tenants from Regent’s Park Crown Estate for the excellent meeting held on monday night! The room was packed with residents who were rightfully protesting against plans to sell the freeholds of their homes. I want all residents to rest assured that local activists like myself will support this extremely important campaign.

I have expressed my concerns to senior politicians including the Housing Minister John Healey and Harriet Harman. I will continue to lobby anyone and everyone about this absurd proposal. We will not allow people to be forced out of their own homes without a fight!

By the way, if you want to support this campaign, please do sign the online petition. It will only take a minute!

Furthermore if you pick up the Camden New Journal today, you’ll see a quote from me condemning the access to inappropriate websites in St Pancras Library.

Finally, this week I am also campaigning against the proposal for the High Speed Train to come into Euston, against the sale of our council homes by the Tory/Lib Dem council and against the closure of the Whittington Hospital Accident & Emergency Unit.

Thanks for reading and have a good evening.

Ps – Liverpool supporters – it’s going to be a big one for us on Sunday!
