Come tomorrow, it's the Labour Conference and I can certainly think of a more striking message than one asking the Prime Minister to support small business. "Vote Tony - Get Gordon" springs to mind!
Mind you, Monday's weather lookds decidedly "iffy" anyway, for both Bournemouth and a birthday message, in part Arabic, over Southend pier.
Did anyone see the BBC politics programme today? It's on the web at the BBC website but the housing Minister, described as "Bonkers", Kent's house building policy, unhappy that not enough houses are being built.
KCC leader, Paul Carter was on the programme and pointed-out that Kent had "over-performed" and that to build houses before the infrastructure was in place would not be sensible. However, the government wants its new houses and particularly social housing, yesterday, 11,000 in Thanet alone and isn't happy with feeble excuses involving roads, environment and more.
Hands up anyone who wants to see 11,000 new houses built in Thanet as quickly as government would like and without taking careful account of our own traffic and infrastructure problems?
I don't see that many.
