I understand several Cabinet Ministers held a telephone conference call on Friday evening to agree their position following the loss of Crewe and Nantwich. Apparently it was decided that they should not issue any calls for unity as this would give the game away that they were divided. Unfortunately, it appears no one told the current MP for Bury South who on Saturday was reported in the Times as saying among other things “We need to roll up our sleeves and show the discipline and unity which is non-negotiable if we are to earn the right to a fourth term.” Full story here
I am pleased to report that CeeCee passed his inspection at the V E T’s he was fairly well behaved for his injection and by the end of this week we will be able to start taking him out.
It has been a fairly quiet couple of days this Bank Holiday weekend. I only had one engagement yesterday a Sunday Lunch at Greenmount Golf Club organised by the North Manor Ward Conservatives. Numbers were a little down on usual with alot of people away because of the Bamk Holiday and school half term holidays but there were still well over 60 and we had an enjoyable lunch followed by entertaining speeches from Councillor Jack Walton and his wife Pat who have recently finished their two year stint as Mayor and Mayoress and then Deputy Mayor and Deputy Mayoress of Bury.
