What a turn up, the recession might be coming to an end. City said three years, Brown and Darling said one, and as things look, the latter two may be right. Perhaps this was why Brown stayed on, against all odds; he knew deep down.
The end of national and international turmoil in the economy may well help steady many finances, but it won’t do anything to help ousted Labour councillor Keith Bobbin. He loses his £15,000 allowances after losing to Tory Sandra Hillier in the Essex County Council elections, by only 96 votes (I did my bit by voting for him last Thursday).
To make matters worse, as a consequence of his seat loss, he has to now join the dole.
He is said to have fallen out of love with politics and plans to stand down as ward councillor for Pitsea North West next election. Certainly this would be enough to make one fall out of love with politics.
