I really want to talk about the Greenwich riverside, and perhaps about the industrial past – but, before that to say ‘thank you’ to Rob for this slot, and that it is flattering to be asked to write next after Denise – and of course to wish her the best of luck in her new role in the future.
I should also mention the experience of having been a local councillor – I could write so much on that – and also to say that I know how many desperate issues there are to be addressed in our area. Most of them – tunnels, supermarkets, roads, housing - are things taking place because of the development process and – sadly – they are really too much for one old lady ex-councillor to take on. I'm happy to support other people. But don’t think that because I haven’t mentioned them here that I don’t know or care about them.
