The last few days have seen a chill coming down from the north making life difficult for some people, and I don't mean the weather!
Having clung on to his position by his fingernails Cllr Neil Semple stood down earlier this month and has now turned on his former colleagues in Lewisham's Labour administration. His "observations" are particularly damning because they confirm what almost all the residents that I speak to are saying. Labour pretend to listen but actually care little about what local people think.
The Labour hierarchy who were so eager to tell us that Neil was doing a great job from Scotland and that there was no need for him to stand down are now saying that he wasn't around enough to understand how the council worked. So which is it?
Oh, the weather has been pretty chilly too.
