Don't know what to think about  the Bulldog being (potentially) demolished....

....but I do think it's worth pointing out that when Cllr Mallinson was a Labour Councillor he appeared to be more truthful about what the future held for Walcot under a Conservative Council.




When he crossed the floor to the Conservative group Peter Mallinson then helped to bring about the very same things he'd previously warned about.

I just love the bit

'The Tories are also proposing to charge older and disabled people for home services,cut Oasis and Link hours, close public toilets and cut back on refuse services.

Peter says 'we don't want Walcot to become a rubbish dump.  It will under the Tories.'


And what happened when he joined them?

What a gem of a find, says everything the people of Walcot want to know really.

Why do I get this image of the Spitting Image character for Kenneth Baker in my mind.

Does anyone know how the Library Celebration went a week ago today?

I have had no feedback whatsoever and it was even reported in the Adver.

I hope they did not waste any food!

Interesting leaflet

Don't recognise any of the Volunteers and the photograph omits the longstanding volunteers such Gill, Carol and Mary.  I hope they are still there, they were a few weeks ago!

and Driving up Recycling Rates - what's that in his left hand?  Perhaps he could also tell us why there are no recycling facilities in the Sussex Square Flats?  It all goes in the bin.  Still, sadly Peter never took any interest in the flats so he probably doesn't even know about this fact.

has he specifically been involved in promoting recycling in the town? Could he explain why recycling, reducing waste, public transport, etc. get no mention in 'One Swindon'?

Hw may not but I can have stab - One Swindon's cloth has been cut to suit the pocket. 
Oi! Listen mush. Old eyes, remember? I’ve been around the block a few times. More than a few. They’ve knocked down the blocks I’ve been around and rebuilt them as bigger blocks. Super blocks. And I’ve been round them as well.  The Doctor (Night Terrors)

Quote from David Glaholm on the Penhill thread

"I'm out tomorrow helping Peter Mallinson in Walcot to retain his seat.
Im not pro Lib Dem or Conservative............ Just ANTI LABOUR.!!!!!"

Well well they should make a good team together and all it needs is another friend in the form of Derique Montaut to turn up as well, but canvassing for Ellen Osa, of course!!

Should be fun in Walcot on Easter Monday

we went out to that shoe shop next to cavendish Sq last week, thought all the new houses around the sq and its area looked very good and a good improvement, would have helped if nearly every garden didnt have rubbish in amongst the flower beds etc but I suspose that is down to the owners.....

I understand that Councillor Mallinson was out canvassing Somerville Road in East Walcot with his wife Bette this morning.

No sign of David Glaholm though  >:D

It proves he has not given up yet!!

This should prove to be one of the most interesting results on Thursday evening.

What about today David, you certainly were not with him when he leafleted and calling carded the Sussex Square flats, were you?

It is amazing what the possibility of a vote will do because I never managed to get the good Councillor interested in the problems in the flats and to the best of my knowledge he has not visited for some long time, being too busy in the Library apparently.
