Back to Blighty
Currently im in India for a week having arrived from Uganda.
The refreshing chill from Kampalas permanent equatorial autumn really struck me.
But as of next Monday ill hit an even bigger chill, If I can get a landing slot at Heathrow, as im back in blightly for a year long maternity cover contract.
And yes its Cambridge City Council as Planning Policy Manager.
Some irony here the home of my biggest blog protagonists Colin Wiles and Pontus Rendall.
I should say the freedom of not working in UK local government has enabled me to be very frank with some UK local authorities. In my new position I will have to be more restrained. I would stress however that the views expressed have never been aimed at one particular party, ive criticised councils run by all three, and are aimed at helping cllrs make tough decisions. Rather surprisingly this has led to some issues raised here being frequently mentioned at council meetings.
So I hope to continue blogging though I imagine the time for it and scope of what I am free to write about will diminish.
