So, if this new localism stuff is meant to be so fucking local, why is the NHS foundation trust I joined, which covers this area, holding its AGM in Rainham, Essex*, and its board meeting the next day in Ilford (at 10am, so nobody who has a job can possibly attend)? Come to think of it, that Douglas Adams quote should probably have tipped me the wink about this from the word go.
Perhaps this is why Lord Wolfson wants to build a series of flyovers across London. I’m actually almost regretting not driving.
Update: I couldn’t go – I was working. hey, hold a public meeting at the opposite end of London at the same time, why don’t you, they’re only nutters.
